"This is my grandma's lumpia and pancit that she has been making since before the family moved to the U.S. when my dad was a child. This is very popular with both family and friends. As soon as my friends in high school discovered my grandma was in town, my house became THE place for lunch! She serves her lumpia with a garlic and vinegar dipping sauce. It's very pungent, but oh so tasty. You can make a large batch of the lumpia and freeze it, so you can fry up some when ever you crave it! Spring roll wrappers are the best to use, they are thinner and lighter than egg roll wrappers." — LANIBIRD

I made this for my family's 4th of July gathering, and they are still singing it's praises. I'm constantly being asked when I'll make it again. It's not the same as Lumpia I have had in the past, but still a great tasting version! This one is a keeper!
Warning this recipe is bad. It leaves holes on what to do. How much is half a head of cabbage and how do you cut it? Do you honestly think 1 pound of chicken cooked in water is going to do anything? Then it was bland. I added onion and garlic to try to save it. Then 8 ounces of canton noodles do not need 8 cups of water to cook in. The recipe made it seem as if you should use all of it. Quite frankly I only used 3 cups to get the noodles right. Pancit is a casserole not a soup. The remaining half of the mixture is supposed to go into lumpia's (made with spring roll wrappers not lumpia wrappers) and the mixture is way to coarse for that. Definitely have to chop it fine. Good luck making this. I've been a cooking school instructor for 13 years and I had to really change it to get it to work.
I thought it was pretty good.... PS. for the reviewer CFELDHAUS...pancit is a noodle not a casserole, get your facts straight before bashing a recipe. You've been a cooking instructor for 13 years, but other amateur cookers got it right the first time.
OMG this was so good!. I only used chicken. I boiled 2 pounds of boneless
skinless chicken breasts in 1 quart water with a lid on and I used 1 package of preshredded cabbage and carrots. Since I boiled the chicken I used part of the broth as the sautee. Added the salt and peper and started rolling. I must have made them to fat becasue I ran out of filling had about 5 wrppers left over and no meat and veggies for the pancit. Oh well live in learn. Every one loved how it turned. Definitely a make again recipe!
The person who thought the pancit was bland must have done something wrong because this was a wonderful recipe! So simple, yet so delicious. I wasn't sure how this would taste since the lumpia and pancit I've had in the past were different; but this just proves that different variations can all be equally delightful!
CFELDHAUS does not know what they are talking about, cooking instructor or not. Pacit is a noodle not a casserole as another reviewer state. Lumpia is a spring roll wrapper. The lumpia was great. The pancit, was bland.
Hi! I absolutely love this recipe! My family is from the Philippines also, holidays and birthdays are the best! By the way, if I could rate your Grandma's recipe six stars, I would! The taste brought back so many memories. thank you!!!!
Lumpia is about 3.5 stars, I must admit I like the chicken and pork instead of beef and pork for a change, the Pancit is a 1 star at best. VERY bland, if I were to make this again I would make 60 Lumpia and forget the Pancit! If I were rating the Lumpia alone I probably would have given them a 4 star.
