- 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
- 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!!
