To make Food Republic's simple Filipino lumpia recipe, combine ground pork with several ingredients, and refrigerate the mixture overnight. Wrap thin strips of the mixture with a spring roll wrapper, refrigerate for 1 hour, fry, and serve.
Food Republic's Filipino lumpia recipe calls for 8 ounces of ground pork, 4 ounces of minced carrots, 4 ounces of minced celery, 1 minced onion and 1 ounce of garlic. Add 1 ounce of water chestnuts, 1 egg, 1 teaspoon of black pepper and 2 tablespoons of soy sauce into the mixture. After letting the mixture sit overnight, use 1 pack of spring roll wrappers to wrap thin strips of the mixture, rolling each piece of lumpia firmly and leaving 1/2 inch of the wrapper bare. Rub egg wash on the uncovered area, wrap tightly, and place the wrapped spring rolls on a baking sheet. Repeat the process until none of the mixture remains.
After leaving the wrapped lumpia in the fridge for an hour, fry at 350 degrees Fahrenheit using canola or vegetable oil until the spring rolls turn golden brown. Use paper towels to drain the fried lumpia before serving. Food Republic's easy lumpia recipe makes eight pieces of crispy spring rolls. It takes approximately 45 minutes to prepare, aside from overnight refrigeration, and 20 minutes to cook.
