Shanghai Spring Rolls

One of my friends here in Davao named Marife texted me yesterday just to ask the ingredients of my Lumpia Shanghai. I was surprised when she texted me because we didn’t see other for a couple of months now. I replied to her text and I asked her where I can send the list of the ingredients since it is hard if I will send it through cell phone. I told her to come here in the house or I will send it to her email add if she has one or I will post it to my blog and she preferred to get it here in my blog. So, Marife, here’s your request and I hope to see you again one day. Just let me know if you got this recipe or not.

Lumpia Shanghai (Shanghai Spring Rolls)


½ cup ground pork
½ cup ground beef
¼ cup finely chopped onions
1 egg
3 cloves garlic, minced
¼ cup finely diced celery
¼ cup grated carrots
1 tsp. oil
Soy sauce and powder pepper to taste
Spring roll wrapper
Oil for frying


Combine all filing ingredients and mix thoroughly. Put at least a teaspoon of filing one inch from the edge of each spring roll wrapper and wrap into a thin roll. Seal with well beaten egg or water. Place wrapped lumpia in the freezer for at least 2 hours. Fry until golden brown. Let cool. Cut into serving pieces if it is long, about 3 inches in length per piece. Serve with sweet and sour sauce or vinegar with crushed garlic and pepper.

Have a great weekend everyone.
