Leftover Pulled Pork Lumpia

Post by jeepdad »

This stuff is like crack using leftover pulled pork! I get Lumpia wrappers at a local Asian market. I recommend Lumpia wrappers as opposed to springroll/egg roll wrappers.

Jeepdad's Lumpia

Servings: 15

Ingredients
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 pound ground pork (I use leftover pulled pork or leftover brisket, chicken, etc)
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup minced carrots
1/2 cup chopped green onions
1/2 cup thinly sliced green cabbage
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon soy sauce
30 lumpia wrappers
2 cups vegetable oil for frying

Directions

1. Place a wok or large skillet over high heat, and pour in 1 tablespoon vegetable oil. Cook pork, stirring frequently, until no pink is showing. Remove pork from pan and set aside. Drain grease from pan, leaving a thin coating. Cook garlic and onion in the same pan for 2 minutes. Stir in the leftover pulled pork (brisket, smoked chicken, rib meat etc), carrots, green onions, and cabbage. Season with pepper, salt, garlic powder, and soy sauce. Remove from heat, and set aside until cool enough to handle.

2. Place three heaping tablespoons of the filling diagonally near one corner of each wrapper, leaving a 1 1/2 inch space at both ends. Fold the side along the length of the filling over the filling, tuck in both ends, and roll neatly. Keep the roll tight as you assemble. Moisten the other side of the wrapper with water to seal the edge. Cover the rolls with plastic wrap to retain moisture.

3. Heat a heavy skillet over medium heat, add oil to 1/2 inch depth, and heat for 5 minutes. Slide 3 or 4 lumpia into the oil. Fry the rolls for 1 to 2 minutes, until all sides are golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve immediately.

Comments:
If uneven browning occurs while frying try adding 2 Tbsp sugar to the water for the wraps while prepping and stir to dissolve. (This helps the rice paper turn golden when fried and crispier texture.


Mojo Thai Dipping Sauce

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup white vinegar
1 Tablespoon fish sauce
1 red chili, chopped

Simmer for 5 minutes, enough to dissolve the sugar. Then cool.

Add:
1 Tablespoon chopped peanuts
1/4 carrot, finely chopped
1/4 cucumber, seeded and finely chopped

Lumpia or Coconut Shrimp Dip
1/2 cup orange marmalade
1 Tbs horseradish
2 tsps Dijon mustard
2 tsps lemon juice
1/4 tsp hot sauce
1/4 tsp salt

Garlic Cider Dip
Crush 4 cloves of garlic in a cup of apple cider vinegar, let sit for a few hours.
