A gal that worked with my husband also sold a famous home party line of cosmetics, and had been begging me to have a party and invite friends to do our colors and test the products. I told her the only way I would do it was if she make her famous Lumpia, and share the recipe with me. The party was a success for her, and gained me a very favorite appetizer recipe.


  • 1 pkg. ground beef
  • 1/2 lb. fresh string beans, cut french style
  • 1 lg. onion, sliced
  • 2 carrots, grated (long strands)
  • 1/4 C. water
  • 1 sm. cabbage, finely shredded
  • 2 cans bean sprouts, drained
  • Garlic powder, MSG (optional), soy sauce, salt, pepper to taste
  • 50 med. size egg-roll or lumpia wrappers


  • Brown ground beef.
  • Add water and simmer for about 5 minutes.
  • Add sliced onion, stir until wilted.
  • Add the rest of the vegetables, adding the bean sprouts last.
  • Cook until vegetables are crisp tender - do not overcook.
  • Drain the mixture in a large colander thoroughly and cool well.
  • Keep egg roll wrappers covered to keep them from drying out.
  • Using one wrapper at a time, place one heaping T. of meat mixture down the center and roll, tucking ends in first (these will be less than half the thickness of a regular egg roll.
  • Dampen fingertip with water and run over loose edge of wrapper to seal.
  • Fry in about a half inch of hot oil, seam side down first to prevent it from unrolling, until golden brown.
  • Serve with sweet and sour sauce.
  • Ground pork, finely minced chicken, or shrimp may be substituted for ground beef. They may also be fried, stored in the refrigerator or freezer, and reheated in a 350 degree oven until warm. Makes approximately 50.
