Filipino Spring rolls with pork. Perfect for snacks or as a sharing platter for all occacions.
What is Lumpiang Baboy
Lumpia is probably the most popular sharing dish in every Filipino party and gatherings. It goes so quickly! This is also known as lumpiang shanghai but there are so many different versions of this dish. I don’t really like using Lumpiang Shanghai because I feel that people should be able to recognise Filipino food from Chinese food. I know there are many influences from our Chinese neighbors but it’s essentially Filipino food. So I am calling it Lumpiang Baboy which directly translates to pork spring rolls.
Let’s talk ingredients
Most of the ingredients are easily accessible from your local grocery shop.
Spring roll wrappers – I buy mine from Wing Yip but I have seen these being sold at Tesco too. You can also buy the wrappers from any asian shop. They are in the freezer section.
Oil – I used vegetable oil or sometimes sunflower oil to fry them but you can use any oil you use at home.
Sauce – you can make your own or buy ready made ones. I like making my own sauce as I can tailor it to what suits my family.
You made my day!

In a bowl add all of the ingredients for the spring rolls and mix well until the ingredients are well and truly combined.
To roll the spring rolls, put a wrapper on a plate (it should face you like a diamond shape) and add a scoop of pork mixture in the almost at the bottom of the wrapper. Take the bottom corner, fold it to the top corner of the wrapper and while securing the top corner, gently slide the bottom corner down with the pork mixture to shape it tightly. Fold the left corner into the middle, then the right corner into the middle of the wrapper making sure it doesn’t break or become loose. Roll it up once or twice, brush the top side with some eggs and continue to roll it until you reach the top corner. Remember to keep it tight! Do this until you finish wrapping all of the pork mixture.
Cook them by shallow fryint hem on medium heat until they turn golden brown. When they are cooked, drain some of the oil with kitchen tissue and then serve them with some dipping sauce.
To make the sauce: mix all of the ingredients in a bowl that’s it!
