Lumpia (Shanghai version) Recipe
A recipe I know all Filipinos are proud of! Lumpia (shanghai type) is a type of egg roll, except it's mainly filled with meat. You could use pork or beef or both! It's a yummy recipe and great to serve as finger food. I like to use both beef and pork but you can substitute one for the other. VERY EASY!

Was not good at all, many people gave high rating, I dont know why. This is not a recipe I would try again. I suggest only pork no beef as it changes the REAL LUMPIA taste and burns the oil. Suggest alittle small sliced cabbage to each lumpia and more black pepper
Recipe is great. TIP: before rolling the lumpia fry up a quarter size of your meat mixture to taste seasoning level. Adjust if needed.
Unbelievably tasty!!! I cut back on the salt, but that was the only change I made. Outstanding flavor and very easy to make. I think this has definitely made the dinner rotation in my house!!!
It was a hit at my husband's pot luck party! They all loved it! I used ground pork and it tasted terrific!! I made another batch for the house, I used ground beef it wasn't as great. I suggest using ground pork. Also, I'd add about 1 tbs of onion powder and maybe 1 tsp of msg. Lessen on the black pepper..maybe just a 1 tsp. 2 1/2 is just way way too much.
Little Filipino spring rolls, stuffed with savory pork and shrimp, are deep fried to a crispy golden brown.
This recipe is great, but there is no need for the additional salt because the soy sauce has a lot of sodium. Also, if you like garlic, use fresh crushed garlic instead. I tend to use ground beef instead of ground pork because the ground pork takes longer to cook, and when I make a huge batch of these, I don't have time to make sure the pork is cooked well and at the same time the lumpia wrapper is not burnt! My extra ingredient that gives the taste a special twist is to use sesame oil too. I use sesame oil that's more an asian style, and it has a strong scent, but a lot of people will say it tastes good and ask what that extra ingredient is. I also add an egg as well. This recipe is good w/sweet and sour sauce or w/soy sauce and a little vinegar for dipping.Another good sauce to eat with this is Thai sweet chili sauce for a little hint of spice. OH YEAH ..they're great for freezing in case you have unexpected guests... like the other reviewer said, you don't need to thaw before frying, just be careful
