A new family favorite! I have made this recipe several times now and I can tell you it's been a requested dish for the past several parties I've either thrown or have attended. I have made it according to the instructions and I have altered it by adding my own "tastes" to the dish. Either way, it's worthy of 5 stars. My ultimate preference is to add a bit more soy sauce and I like the idea of substituting adobo seasoning instead---- very important INSTEAD--- of the salt. It may be a minor alteration, but it completely transforms the taste in my opinion. My husband like a more cabbage, so if you have extra, don't be afraid to throw in any of the extra vegetables. Also, just a comment after reading other reviews, it yielded around 25 lumpia for me I'd say, not quite 30, but it all depends on how thick you want your rolls to be if you follow the recipe as is. This recipe doesn't intend them to be fat rolls like Chinese eggrolls, and I prefer the thinner version myself. Modify it to suit your tastes, as is really what we should all be doing with any recipe. Add your own style to it! :) Try it-- this dish is killer! Preferred in my family to the actual main dish. :) Freezes very well also if you care to make them in advance or don't intend to eat much right away--- just wrap, freeze, and cook when ready. Also, cover your rolls/put in plastic ziplock bag and the wraps themselves as you're rolling them so they don't dry out. Enjoy! :)
