It's probably one of the more popular appetizers of the Filipino cuisine! It's basically an egg roll filled with either ground pork, beef, or just vegetables. There are other ingredients in there, but it's so simple, you can make extra to store in the freezer for future use (uncooked of course). I don't know how many times someone has asked if I could make lumpia! I don't know why I don't make it more often because it really is a meal in itself! Honestly, I don't even remember the last time I made it!
Awhile ago, I planned for my friend Carmen to come over so we could make lumpia her way, or I should say, the more "authentic way"!! After Sunday night service, we were talking in the cafe, and on a whim, we decided that Monday would be great for her to come over! My other girlfriend overheard our conversation and decided she wanted to come over too! Of course, it turned into something bigger! What was originally going to be just Carmen and I, turned into three of us girls, two husbands, and and twelve kids! It worked out perfect because all the kids and my friends husband went with my husband to the soccer practices, and us girls had wonderful girl time!
So, in case none of you have ever heard or seen lumpia, here ya go!!!
My friend Carmen doing her thing! Getting everything together.
We used ground pork & ground beef. I believe this was the beef! The ingredients are so simple. One whole onion, 4 cloves garlic, grated carrot, salt & pepper! You can adjust the ingredients to your liking.
Lorena doing the same thing! The beaten egg in the bowl is used as a sealant.How they look like after they are rolledIn the hot oil they go! Yummy! My friend made a homemade sauce for them. It was so good!And there ya go! I plan on making more for my family this weekend. They're so delicious, and so yummy with hot, steaming rice!
Thy sound and look delicious!!! I may well try to make these sometime.

OMG my friend Jennifer loves that! She keeps telling me that we're going to fly to Cali to eat some!
Yum!!!!!!!!! I wish I could reach through the screen and eat one. lol I LOVE LOVE LOVE egg rolls and I can't remember the last time I ate one (ya know -- trying to be a good girl and eat healthy). But yum!
wow..I have never heard of those before.
Me personally I'm not a fan of egg rolls..my husband loves them though.
Yummy!! It looks like our Malaysian fried popiah!
ooooo!!! I am sooo craving these!
Can you buy the spring rolls already made? That would be my prob. not being able to find those. I think. I will have to do some hunting.
Thanks for posting the how toos. I will be asking questions if I can´t get it though.
From one Flip home to yours
You didn't mention the time....what time should we be there this weekend? lol

Good show, my friend!

Wow! Those look delicious Alicia!!!! Thanks for sharing! :)
My mom used to make lumpia when we were little. It's been years since I've had it but I absolutely love it! Your post now has me craving it!
Yum!!! I don't think I've ever had any Filipino food. I need to try those!!!
I love Lompia. I haven't made them in quite some time, though. It is hard to find the wrappers around here. I usually have to get them in DC or Baltimore and since I stopped working there (like 14 years ago) I don't get there but once or twice a year. We used to spend a few hours making a boat load of them and freeze them in zip lock bags. then I would take out a few and fry them when we wanted a snack. The only problem is, I was not patient about waiting for them to cool and used to burn my mouth every time!
I love how your friends all came over and you kinda made it a party! :)
They look yummy!
Looks Yummy! Can I invite you to join Yummy Sunday tomorrow? Please visit my blog :)Perfectly Blended. Thanks!
Sounds like a great time and looks so yummy!
Sounds very yummy!!!
Aawww yeeeeaaaahhhhh!!! I love to eat mine with vinegar and crushed garlic! Mmmm! What's next? Pancit? ;-)
OK, sounds good, but I take it that you buy the wrappers. What kind of sauce do you make for them??
You have a nice blog. and the food looks really good
I learned something here today! Thanks for the lesson and the great recipe!
man - that looks yum.
Ooh, those look yummy! I wonder if you could tweak the recipe using chicken instead, and then somehow bake them? (I'm on a diet here.) :-)
It's 9:30pm and now I want lumpia. YUMMMM!
I have never had those before, but they look delicious!
Ah... I Miss my mom...she used to make lumpia every week...Lumpia and puto are my 13yo's favorite!
My Dad's adobo's my kids' favorite as well as my Mom's leche flan and egg pie..
cooking is always a bonding experience for me and my mom.. these are the dishes we also make as well.
They look sooooooooo good and she looks like a great cook! I wish I had that talent! LOL
Yes! lumpia is yummy. how about the fresh lumpia?
I would be surprised if no one heard about it. It's very popular for us
Filipinos and it's always present on parties. Looks yummy!
I've heard of them but would you believe I've never tried it?? It looks SO good! Are the wrappers similar to egg roll wrappers? Did you buy them or handmake those?
ok, i am going to try these! so the meat is done cooking when the spring roll is golden brown? YUM YUM double YUM!
If it is a hit it will make my recipe blog with all the glory bells and whistles to you! If it is a bomber you get all the accolades as well.LOL, I'm nice like that!
oh yummy! lumpia is always an all time favorite of mine.
Those look so good! We don't fry much at our house...but those would be worth getting the oil out for!
Oh my goodness, I love eating lumpia!!! I need to find a store that carries lumpia wrapper! Every where around here only has wanton wrappers, and to me those aren't good!
Love me some lumpia! It has got to be the tamales of Filipino families! I LOVE when our Filipino friends say...oooh we made lumpia and we wanted to SHARE some with YOU!!! Hooray!!!!!! Our whole family loves lumpia, and generous Filipino friends!
yummy! that's one of our faves here...
