Filipino Lumpia This is a traditional Filipino dish. It is the Filipino version of the egg rolls. It can be served as a side dish or as an appetizer."


* 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
* 1 pound ground pork
* 2 cloves garlic, crushed
* 1/2 cup chopped onion
* 1/2 cup minced carrots
* 1/2 cup chopped green onions
* 1/2 cup thinly sliced green cabbage
* 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 1 teaspoon garlic powder
* 1 teaspoon soy sauce
* 30 lumpia wrappers
* 2 cups vegetable oil for frying


1. Place a wok or large skillet over high heat, and pour in 1 tablespoon vegetable oil. Cook pork, stirring frequently, until no pink is showing. Remove pork from pan and set aside. Drain grease from pan, leaving a thin coating. Cook garlic and onion in the same pan for 2 minutes. Stir in the cooked pork, carrots, green onions, and cabbage. Season with pepper, salt, garlic powder, and soy sauce. Remove from heat, and set aside until cool enough to handle.
2. Place three heaping tablespoons of the filling diagonally near one corner of each wrapper, leaving a 1 1/2 inch space at both ends. Fold the side along the length of the filling over the filling, tuck in both ends, and roll neatly. Keep the roll tight as you assemble. Moisten the other side of the wrapper with water to seal the edge. Cover the rolls with plastic wrap to retain moisture.
3. Heat a heavy skillet over medium heat, add oil to 1/2 inch depth, and heat for 5 minutes. Slide 3 or 4 lumpia into the oil. Fry the rolls for 1 to 2 minutes, until all sides are golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve immediately. Servers 15

Lumpia are pastries of Chinese origin similar to spring rolls popular in Indonesia and the Philippines. The term lumpia derives from lunpia (traditional Chinese: 潤餅; pinyin: rùnbǐng; POJ: jūn-piá?, lūn-piá?) in the Hokkien language. The recipe, both fried and fresh versions, was brought by the Chinese immigrants from the Fujian province of China to Southeast Asia and became popular where they settled in Indonesia and the Philippines. In the Netherlands and Flanders, it is spelled loempia which is the old Indonesian spelling for lumpia and has also become the generic name for "spring roll" in Dutch. A variant is the Vietnamese lumpia, wrapped in a thinner piece of pastry, in a size close to a spring roll though the wrapping closes the ends off completely, which is typical for lumpia.


It's like spring rolls. You can put whatever you want there. The skin is like dumpling/wonton skin, the inside can be meat, chicken, rice vermicelli, vegetables, whatever you want. Then you fried them.

You can get them in Chinese restaurants, or many Asian type-y restaurants.
