I have been making lumpia for years now using all pork, all ground beef and even all ground turkey for the filling. The pork filled lumpia came in first for taste with the ground turkey coming in second. Check the lumpia wrappers for mold before you check out in the grocery store. Experience has taught me that the lumpia wrappers either need to be used almost immediately or frozen for future use as soon as you get them home. They mold easily and I have bought my fair share of unchecked moldy wrappers home. It is really important to only put about a pinkie's worth of filling in each wrapper as these cook up pretty quickly and you want to make sure these are done completely. Sometimes I cheat using store bought shredded carrot and cabbage cole slaw mixture and a half a medium onion for the vegetables. Oh and dont forget to pull all of the wrappers apart before you start rolling (a huge time saver). Just remember to cover them back up with a dry dishcloth as to prevent drying out while rolling. I always create an assembly line using about 7 wrappers at a time quickly stuffing, rolling then sealing them. Sweet Chilli Sauce is a must have for dipping. It can usually be found next to the sweet and sour sauce of any grocery store while the wrappers can be found in the frozen section. Both can be found at just about any international grocery store. Cook some lumpia now and freeze the rest for a later date.
