Ingredients Edit

Directions Edit

  1. In a large bowl, combine ground beef, onion, and vegetables
  2. Make sure to completely mix everything
  3. Get down and dirty and use your hands
  4. Knead the meat in the bowl if you must
  5. Gradually blend in the soy sauce , Tony's, garlic powder, and salt until all ingredients are evenly distributed
  6. Lay out a few wrappers at a time on a flat surface, and place about 2 tablespoons of the filling in a line down the center of the wrapper
  7. Make sure the filling is no thicker than your thumb, or the wrapper will cook faster than the meat
  8. Take the bottom and top edges of the wrapper and fold them towards the center
  9. Take the left and right sides, and fold them towards the center
  10. Moisten the last edge of the wrapper to seal
  11. Now repeat using the rest of the wrappers
  12. Heat the oil in a deep-fryer or heavy skillet to 375 °F (190 °C)
  13. Fry 3 or 4 lumpia at a time
  14. Fry for about 3 or 4 minutes, turning once
  15. Lumpia are cooked through when they float, and the wrapper is golden brown
  16. Cut in half, or serve as is with dipping sauce of your choice
  17. We like sweet and sour sauce, soy sauce with calamansi, or banana ketchup
