Seems a number of you have taken a liking to the Filipino egg rolls (lumpias) so I'm posting the recipes of the fried lumpia...

There is the meat lumpia (with the ground pork or ground beef) and the vegetable lumpia (with the bean sprouts). Meat lumpias are great with a sweet and sour sauce dip, while the vegetable lumpias are great with garlic vinegar dip. Here's the recipe...


INGREDIENTS
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 pound ground pork/ground beef (for meat lumpias) or bean sprouts (for vegetable lumpias)
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup minced carrots
1/2 cup chopped green onions
1/2 cup thinly sliced green cabbage
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon soy sauce
30 lumpia wrappers
2 cups vegetable oil for frying

Place a wok or large skillet over high heat, and pour in 1 tablespoon vegetable oil. (For meat lumpia: cook pork/beef, stirring frequently, until no pink is showing, then 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/beef or bean sprouts, carrots, green onions, and cabbage (you can also place all these in food processor if you want the shanghai meat version). Season with pepper, salt, garlic powder, and soy sauce. Remove from heat, and set aside until cool enough to handle.

Place three heaping tablespoons of the filling diagonally near one corner of each wrapper, leaving a 1 1/2 inch space at both ends. Fold the side along the length of the filling over the filling, tuck in both ends, and roll neatly. Keep the roll tight as you assemble. Moisten the other side of the wrapper with water to seal the edge.

Heat a heavy skillet over medium heat, add oil to 1/2 inch depth, and heat for 5 minutes. Slide the lumpias into the oil. Fry the rolls for 1 to 2 minutes, until all sides are golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve immediately.

Meat lumpias can be dipped in sweet and sour sauce while vegetable lumpias are great with garlic vinegar dip.

oh yeah, if you cant find a bottled sweet and sour sauce, you can make your own... here's a very simple recipe..

SWEET AND SOUR SAUCE

2 tbsp. cornstarch
1/2 c. sugar
1/4 c. white vinegar
1/4 c. pineapple juice
2 tsp. soy sauce
1/4 c. water

Combine ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Simmer gently 5 minutes, remove from heat. Serve immediately or store in refrigerator and serve cold.

If you want the sauce to be a little spicy and you have more time to cook, try this...

HOT SWEET AND SOUR SAUCE

2 1/2 tsp. cornstarch
1 c. cold water
4 tbsp. sugar
5 tbsp. brown sugar
4 tbsp. ketchup
1/3 c. green onions, cut in 1 inch lengths
1/4 tsp. red hot pepper flakes or Tabasco sauce, optional
1/3 c. fresh ginger, finely shredded
1/2 tbsp. dry sherry wine
2 tbsp. sesame oil

Combine cornstarch and 1/4 cup water. Stir in remaining water. Stir in white sugar, brown sugar and ketchup. Set aside.

Heat 1 teaspoon sesame oil in a small saucepan. Add onion, pepper and ginger. Mix thoroughly and then add wine. Cook for 1 minute or until flavor from ginger becomes aromatic.

Add onion, pepper, ginger, wine and sesame oil. Cook until it boils, reduce heat and stir constantly. Slowly add the cornstarch mixture and cook for about 1 more minute. Add 1 teaspoon sesame oil to finish off.

Serve warm or cold with the lumpia rolls.
