IMG_2095[1]Yesterday, we made Fried Lumpia for dinner. This is a traditional Filipino food that common  dishes found in any kind of gathering and celebrating. It is the Filipino version of the egg rolls. It can be served as a side dish or as an appetizer.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2  ground pork
  • 1 garlic, minced
  • 1 onion minced
  • 2 small carrots, minced
  • 1 big red bell pepper, minced

  • 1 teaspoon low sodium, soy sauce
  • 50 pcs lumpia wrappers
  • 1 1/2 cooking oil for deep frying
  • 1 egg yolk
  • egg white to paste the wrapper

Directions:

Prepare the frying pan  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.
