mrsmegawatt's Lumpia recipe

Hi Ken...here is the recipe. It doesn't call for cabbage but from time to time, I throw in a bunch towards the end of the cooking process. My kids like it without it so it's rare that I get to include it.

Lumpia

1 lb ground pork
1 lb ground chicken
4 cloves crushed garlic
1 1/2 cups chopped onions
1 cup finely shredded carrots
1 cup chopped celery
1 Tbsp salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
2 (16 oz) pkg lumpia wrappers
1 egg lightly beaten for sealing

Brown ground pork and ground chicken. Remove excess fat. Stir in garlic and onions. Stir fry until tender. Transfer to colander to drain off any drippings. This prevents the wrappers from getting soggy.

Wrap about 1 tbsp meat and veggie mixture in wrapper. (You may do this in advance, cover and refrigerate to fry later).

Heat oil to 375. Fry till golden brown, drain on paper towels.

I buy wrappers at Central Fish. They are a brand called Menlo (red, clear and black wrapper) and I find that they are the best. They are not the usual Azumaya like you see in the produce section of Savemart. I've also seen them at RN Market in the freezer section. The right wrapper makes all the difference. You would never be able to roll these out and store before frying with the ones from the produce section as they would sog out. I did these with shrimp and pork one time and didn't like them as well.
