1/2 pound each, ground beef, pork, chicken and shrimp (raw)
1, 8 ounce can water chestnuts drained and finely chopped
2 carrots finely chopped
1 small bunch green onions, finely chopped (or one med. onion, chopped finely)
1 pound bean sprouts
1/2 pound finely shredded cabbage
2 small cloves, finely minced garlic
salt and pepper to taste optional ingredients. (Finely chopped) celery, bell peppers, green beans
LUMPIA WRAPPERS or won ton wrappers
1. With a small amount of vegetable oil, sauté beef, port, chicken and shrimp with garlic and onions till cooked or tender, then add carrots, celery and other optional ingredients and cook till tender, adding salt and pepper to taste...
2. Put a tablespoon full of the sautéed ingredients in the middle of a wrapper and wrap, anchoring with a flour paste. (You should cover the wrapped lumpia with a damp dishtowel as the wrappers can harden and crack, making it hard to fry)
3. Fry the lumpia until golden brown. Do not cover, as it will make the lumpia soggy.If you're around an Asian store, BANANA CATSUP is a great dipping sauce, otherwise, I like to make a vinegar, minced garlic, ground pepper, slight bit of vegetable oil sauce to dip in, others just like to dip it in soy sauce mixed with a little vinegar.
