Beef Lumpia


1.5 Lbs EXTRA lean ground beef
2 Tbsp ground pepper
2 Tbsp Garlic powder
1/3 Tsp salt
2 Green onions, finely minced
1/3 Carrot, finely minced
3 Cloves garlic, finely minced
1 Egg
1 Package egg roll (sometimes called spring roll) wrappers
Soy sauce for dipping

Open egg roll wrapper bag and separate all wrappers from each other. Put on a plate in the middle of two moist towels. Combine all ingredients in bowl.
Lay Egg roll out in diamond shape and place small amount of mixture toward the bottom of the wrapper. You want it about as thick as a sausage and maybe a little wider about 4.5 inches wide. Roll the bottom corner over it and then roll halfway up.

Fold outer corners toward the inside and keep rolling. When you get to the very top dip your fingers in water and moisten the top and roll to seal.

Finished product. These have to be fried. You will either need to preheat some oil in a pan about an inch worth or heat up your fry daddy at this point. Fry egg rolls in single layer until they are golden brown.

You want them about this color. Pull one out and cut in half to make sure there is no pink inside.

See pretty like this. One pack of eggroll wrappers will make 25 of these. They freeze amazing I usually wrap them in bundles of 6-8 in foil. You will need to thaw them a little to pull them apart after you freeze them and then they fry up just the same. My husband dunks his in soy sauce.

I made him this soup that he loves to serve on the side. You just follow the package instructions but I like to whip up two eggs and pour them in just at the end. What I do is turn down the heat and start stirring the soup with a fork and then slowly pour in the eggs while slowly stirring in circles then turn off heat and serve.

It makes 2.5 cups but the husband eats it all.

Thank you , Shann - my cousin has had someone make these for years for our annual family bbq, but she has never made them herself, and didn't have the recipe. (We were always totally dependent on her and her source.) Now I do! Yayyy
