This is my x-mother-in-law's recipe for Lumpia. My X taught me how to make them when we were married. I still make them a couple times a year and everyone loves them.


  • 1/2 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 lb ground pork
  • 1 package wonton wrappers (these are often in the produce department or with the dairy)
  • 1 C finely shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 or 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 or 3 green onions, chopped
  • 3 TBLS soy sauce
  • pepper
  • Oil for frying


  • Combine all ingredients except wonton wrappers and mix well.
  • Now to roll them.
  • Place a wonton wrapper in front of you, with a corner pointed toward you.
  • Place a teaspoon or two of the meat mixture towards the bottom of the wrapper and shape horizontally.
  • Fold bottom point of wrapper over meat.
  • Fold sides towards middle, aligned with edges of meat.
  • Moisten your finger tip with water and moisten the top edges of the wonton wrapper.
  • Roll meat mixture toward the top.
  • Top edge should seal to roll, if not, moisten with a bit of water on your finger tip.
  • Go on to the next one!
  • Keep rolling them up until you run out.
  • Heat oil to 350 degreesF
  • Carefully place lumpia in hot oil and fry until golden brown.
  • Drain on cloth covered rack.
  • These are great as is, hot, room temp, cold... plain, with sweet and sour sauce or what I call Filipino Table Sauce (for lack of a better name)
  • My x-MIL used to serve this sauce with lumpia, pork chops, steaks, and lots of stuff. It's pretty much adobo sauce.
  • Equal parts soy sauce & vinegar with a clove or two of minced garlic.
  • It's has a very pungent flavor. I LOVE it!!
  • Enjoy!
