Lumpia Shanghai

This recipe was given to me by Sis. Mackert and let me tell you, it is very delicious!!!

3 lbs Ground Beef or Ground Pork or Ground Chicken
1/2 bag of carrots shredded.. I used my food processor.
1 large Onion diced very small or I used my food processor.
5 Stalks of Celery shredded.. I used my food processor.
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp of season salt
a little soy sauce to taste
a little black pepper to taste
4 eggs
2 tsp Sesame oil
2 Tbs Worcestershire sauce
3 Pks Lumpia Wrappers
Plus if you have it, I added one Pork cube to my recipe for flavor.

Note: With the carrot, onion, and celery, I used my food processor and it worked great and was a whole lot less work.

Directions: Mix all together ( I used plastic gloves because it is sticky ). Now take about a tablespoon or more of mixture and add to center of lumpia wrapper in a line that resembles a long tube across the wrapper and follow directions on how to roll it on the package. Remember to roll these very tight because when you fry them you don't want them coming apart. I make a huge amount of the mixture and roll up several Lumpias and freeze them for a later date for a good fellowship food.

Serve with: Philippino sweet chili sauce or your favorite sweet and sour sauce. Or make your own homemade sweet and sour sauce with. Recipe follows.

Home made sweet and sour sauce:
ketchup, Lemon Juice, brown sugar, black pepper, garlic salt, dried onion, chili sauce, and corn starch for thickening. Add these ingredients to your liking and cook in a small pot on stove. Yummy!

I love lumpia - it's a common dish at local potlucks thanks to all the Filipino families around here!
