Lumpia (Filipino Eggroll)

This is my one of my favorite Filipino dish. This type of lumpia is filled with ground pork or beef, minced onion, carrots, and spices with the mixture held together by beaten egg. Both lumpiang shanghai and the sweet and sour sauce are served which attests to the Chinese influence. This variety is by standard an inch in diameter and approximately 4-6 inches in length. However, most restaurants and street vendors often serve Lumpia shanghai in smaller diameters, typically one-half to three-quarter inches, and is served with a spicy sauce instead of a sweet and sour sauce.

-Ingredients for Beef Eggroll-
-If you have food processor ,use it for quicker chopping-
  •  1/2 Pound Ground  Beef
  •  1/2 Pound Shrimp -- finely chopped
  •  1/2 Cup Carrots   -- chopped
  •  2 Large Scallion  (bright-green edible stalk)-- finely chopped
  •  1/2 Onion -- finely chopped
  •  1 Teaspoon Salt
  •  1 Teaspoon Pepper
  •  1/2 cup oyster sauce (optional but I prefer to use it)
  •  1 Large Egg for mixture and 1 large egg for sealing the Eggroll
  •  1 Tablespoon Soy Sauce
  •  1 Package Egg Roll Wrap
  •  1/2 Cup Oil -- for (Frying Pan) or
  •  Deep Fryer -- Check to see if there is a "max" fill line or read the manufacturer's directions to determine the correct amount of oil for your deep fryer. For most recipes, you want enough oil to immerse the food.

STEP 1: Combine Beef, Onion, Carrots, Green onion, Egg and Soy Sauce. Season with salt and pepper. (Mixture)

STEP 2: In a large skillet heat oil to about  medium high heat. While oil is heating, In a bowl beat the last Egg for pasting to help seal the egg roll from each sides.

STEP 3: Lay out one egg roll skin with a corner pointed toward you. Place about a tablespoon of the Onion, carrot, etc. and beef mixture on egg roll paper and fold corner up over the mixture. Paste the beaten egg on both sides of the eggroll and Fold left and right corners toward the center and continue to roll.

 STEP 4: Place egg rolls into heated oil and fry, turning occasionally, until golden brown. Remove from oil and drain on paper towels or rack. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.

NOTE: You can also use kobe beef to substitute for high end eggroll.
I also you food processor to save some time cutting those ingredients.
