Fried Lumpia-Filipino Style

A recipe all Filipino's are proud of my wife and i are making plans to make some Filipino style lumpia as our landlord's manager will be throwing a party near the end of this month and has asked us if we can provide him with an order of 200 lumpia and an order of Filipino pancit. My wife makes some of the best pancit I've ever tasted and many of our friends and family love her Filipino pancit. I will make the lumpia and my wife will do the rolling part. We just love the taste of fresh fried golden brown lumpia and dipping them into sweet chili sauce. They taste so good when they just come out of the frying pan all crispy and crunchy. It just makes me want some right now. I like to eat them and drink some beer at the same time. Yummy, Yummy!! Here's my recipe for Filipino style lumpia: 4 cups coarsely grated jicama, 2 medium carrots coarsely grated, 2 small onions coarsely grated, 2 eggs, 1 half clove of garlic chopped, 1 lb ground beef, 1 lb ground pork, (or you can use 2lbs ground pork instead of 1 lb beef 1 lb pork) 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, 2 teaspoons of salt, 2 egg whites for sealing the lumpia wrappers, 2 packages of panama lumpia wrappers cut from corner to corner, purchased at seafood city or your local Asian food store. mix all ingredients together. Take a tablespoon of lumpia mix and spread on the wrapper starting from the wide end. roll and fold both ends inside and finish rolling and seal end with some egg white. place on wax papered baking pan. If your not going to cook them right away i suggest you put them in the freezer until your ready to cook them. Fry them in hot oil (about 350 degrees) until golden brown. Serve with panama sweet chili sauce and enjoy. Bon Appetit....
