Cook Time: 60 Min
In a large bowl, mix together ground pork, shredded carrots, shredded cabbage, diced onions, minced garlic, soy sauce, oyster sauce, salt, and pepper.
Lay out a spring roll wrapper and place a spoonful of the pork mixture in the center.
Fold the sides of the wrapper in and roll tightly. Use a bit of beaten egg to seal the wrapper shut. Repeat with the remaining wrappers and filling.
In a large skillet, heat vegetable oil over medium heat.
Once the oil is hot, add the lumpia and fry until golden brown and crispy, about 3-4 minutes per side.
Remove the lumpia from the skillet and place on paper towels to drain excess oil.
Serve with your favorite dipping sauce and enjoy!
– If you're having trouble rolling the lumpia, add a bit of water to the edges of the wrapper to help it stick together.
– To make a vegetarian version, substitute the ground pork with tofu or mushrooms.
– Lumpia can be made in advance and frozen. To reheat, simply bake in the oven at 375°F for 15-20 minutes.
