Recipe: Lumpiang Shanghai

8:49 PM 23 Comments A+ a-

I am no Martha Stewart nor Rachel Leigh. I don't think I also have a gifted palate just like other great cooks do. But I love to prepare food for my family especially now that my eldest needs to have her packed lunch during weekdays. I also grew up with a grandmother (my father's side) who is known for her heart-warming dishes. Recently, I made Lumpiang Shanghai or what others call as Filipino Spring Roll. This is not just an ideal baon recipe but you can also store it at the fridge for a long time. So without further ado, here's a lumpia recipe that most Filipinos love to have especially during family gatherings.

Filipino Spring Roll aka Lumpiang Shanghai





Ingredients:


  • 1/2 kg lean ground pork
  • 2 medium sized carrots (cut in small pieces)
  • 2 onions (cut in half)
  • 9 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup kinchay
  • 2 medium sized eggs
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • lumpia wrapper 


How to Cook:
  1. If you have a food processor put the carrots, onions, garlic, and kinchay together. It will make work easier for you rather than mincing these ingredients.
  2. In a bowl, place the processed or minced ingredients, lean ground pork, eggs, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper.
  3. Combine it all together using your hands.
  4. Put it in the lumpia wrapper to form the spring roll. Usually I measure the amount using 1 tablespoon but the amount still depends on you. You know the drill!
  5. You can immediately fry it up (then cut it in half) or store it in an airtight container for later consumption.
Easy right? Best served with spaghetti or rice. Don't forget to have some ketchup or sweet & spicy sauce at the side to make it more appetizing.

Have you done this mudras? Can you share some twist to our old-time favorite Filipino spring roll? Let us know so we can try it as well!

I love Lumpia, but I lean more on the "Toge" side... When my mom makes shanghai though she usually adds cheese ( around half a bar of eden, diced for a kilo of ground meat ) and it makes it so much better for me. :)

with cheese? noted. i'll do this next time. maybe the taste is similar to embutido, right?

not really like embutido, more of a better version of meatballs used in spaghetti I guess... :)

This is one Filipino recipe that I sooo love and a month will not pass without me including this in my menu cycle at home. Very easy kasi esp if you're quite busy, you could stock up on ref and fry anytime you want.

I've been cooking since I got married (I hate the kitchen prior to taht) But I never tried cooking lumpia yet. Thanks for the idea! A potluck is coming this week, might as well include this on my choices..

Finally I'm able to post a comment, lol! I haven't tried cooking lumpiang shanghai from scratch like you did. I always rely on pre-mixed ingredients in supermarkets and sometimes they disappoint. Iba pa rin talaga yung ikaw ang nagtimpla. I'll try to use your recipe :)

My kids love Lumpiang Shangai too but with bean sprouts (buti nalang :). The husband prefers to have it oven-toasted than fried because it absorbs much oil, either way these are yummy treats :)
