- 1 pound ground pork (you can also use beef)
- 1 medium onion, finely chopped
- 1 carrot, grated
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 2 1/2 teaspoons black pepper
- 1 1/2 tablespoons garlic powder
- 2 tablespoons salt
- 1 package (16 ounce) spring roll wrappers
- 1 1/2 quarts oil for frying
- In a Large bowl, combine ground pork, ground beef, onion, and carrot. Make sure to completely mix everything. I suggest getting down and dirty and use your hands. Knead the meat in the bowl if you must.
- Gradually blend in the soy sauce , black pepper, garlic powder, and salt until all ingredients are evenly distributed.
- Lay out a few wrappers at a time on a flat surface, and place about 2 tablespoons of the filling in a line down the center of the wrapper.
- Make sure the filling is no thicker than your thumb, or the wrapper will cook faster than the meat.
- Take the bottom and top edges of the wrapper and fold them towards the center.
- Take the left and right sides, and fold them towards the center. Moisten the last edge of the wrapper to seal.
- Now repeat using the rest of the wrappers, and have hubby or the kids help you out.
- 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.
- Cut in half, or serve as is with dipping sauce.
- We like sweet and sour sauce, soy sauce with lemon, or banana ketchup.
