Growing up my aunt had a friend who she bowled with that would occasionally send home lumpia for the family. It was incredibly delicious, like really really good. I made lumpia recently for my family for the first time last weekend and while two of my kids were super hesitant to try it Chandler and John were all game for trying it and quickly proclaimed that that it was officially the best thing I have ever made (kind of an exaggeration but apparently it was really good).
I hadn’t planned on sharing this recipe and didn’t even take decent photos of it (besides of course the images that I Instagrammed of it). But here I am craving lumpia again and decided that I have to share it.
2 lbs of ground pork
dash or two of garlic salt and pepper
2 tablespoons of soy sauce
1 package of egg roll wrappers
Mix your ground pork, eggs, garlic salt, pepper, and soy sauce. Fill a frying pan full of oil and heat until its ready for frying. Fill your egg roll wrappers full of your mixture. Ideally you want a small amount of meat so that you have a good amount of wrapper vs mix for the perfect crunch. No need to tuck the ends like a traditional egg roll, just roll it up and seal the end of the egg roll wrapper with a small bit of water and cornstarch mix. Cook each side of the lumpia for about 2-3 minutes or until golden brown.
