30 lumpia wrappers
1 onion, chopped
1 pound ground pork
½ pound vegetable mix (eg. thinly sliced cabbage, julienned carrots, bean sprouts)
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 egg
If you plan to cook the filling: in a large pan over medium-high heat, stir fry the onions till golden brown. Add the ground pork and cook until the pork is browned (about 3 minutes). Add the vegetable mix. Stir fry for 2 more minutes. Add the soy sauce and black pepper. Mix well. Turn off the heat and let cool.
If you don't plan to cook the filling: mix the onions, ground pork, vegetable mix, soy sauce, and black pepper in a mixing bowl. Set aside.
Prepare the egg wash (for sealing the lumpia): beat one egg in a bowl and set aside.
Plate one lumpia wrapper on a plate. Make sure one corner of the wrapper is pointing towards you. Place 2 tablespoons of the filling (either cooked or raw) running horizontally along the bottom third of the wrapper.
Fold the wrapper upwards over the filling, and then fold in the sides. Continue rolling/folding upwards and then seal the wrapper with a dab of the egg wash (made in Step 3).
Heat a pot of oil to medium high heat. Deep fry the lumpia for 3-5 minutes until golden and crisp. You'll need to fry for less time if the filling is already cooked, and for more time if the filling is raw.
Drain the lumpia on a rack or paper towels (to let any excess oil drip out). Eat hot and fresh and enjoy! Though be careful, the lumpia will be very hot straight out of the fryer.
Note: you can also cook lumpia in the air fryer. Preheat the air fryer and cook the lumpia at 400F for 6 minutes total (turn them halfway through, so 3 minutes on each side). Add 1-2 minutes to each side for uncooked filling.
