Lumpiang Shanghai or Spring Rolls

(Photo of Bonnie's attempt at making Nanette's Lumpiang Shanghai !)

It is of Chinese origin (originally called lunpia) and was brought to the Philippines by Chinese immigrants from the Fujian province. In the Philippines , lumpia is a commom menu during celebrations and feast. Here's the recipe.

2 lbs ground pork
1/2 cup green onions (finely chopped)
1 cup carrots (finely chopped)
1 cup onion (finely chopped)
2 tsp soy souce
1 raw egg
1 tsp salt
2 tsp ground black pepper
Lumpia wrapper (spring roll skin) you can buy this in any asian store. I used Menlo that's the brand name.
cooking oil for frying
Hot and sweet tomato chili sauce (for dipping)

1. In a big bowl, mix all the ingredients pork, onion, carrots, green onions, salt, soy sauce, ground pepper and raw egg.
2. wrap the mixture with the lumpia wrapper.
it is the same in how to wrap a burrito.
3. Heat the oil in a frying pan over high heat until hot, then turn it to low heat. Fry the rolls in batches until browned, adding for oil ass needed. Serve hot with sweet and sour sauce or hot and sweet tomato chili sauce.

I can tell you that these are DELICIOUS! I just ate some last Friday evening! Bonnie, something I watched Nanette do that was different from the time I tried to make lumpia is that she fried hers in only about 1/2 inch of oil and turned them often. I deep fried mine, and that was a disaster!

And I welcome you too, Nanette!

Is the hot and sweet tomato chili sauce something you buy or did you make it ? I'm not sure I've seen it here ... do you think I could make something similar ?
