- 1 lb of Mau Nui ground venison
- 1 pack lumpia wrappers
- 4-5 cloves of garlic, finely minced
- 3 carrots, peeled & minced
- 3 celery sticks, minced
- 1/2 medium-sized onion, minced
- 1/2 bunch of green onions, minced
- 1 can of water chestnuts, minced
- 1 Tbsp oyster sauce
- 1 Tbsp shoyu
- 1 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1 bouillon cube vegetable or beef
- 1 egg
- Oil for frying
Utilizing a food processor to mince is recommended but optional.
In a large bowl, add shoyu, oyster sauce, salt, pepper, and bouillon cube. Use a fork to mash the bouillon cube into a paste.
Next, add in 1 lb ground venison, and mix well. Add in green onions, garlic, onions, carrots, celery, and water chestnuts and mix until well combined.
Allow filling to marinate for a minimum of 2 hours or preferably overnight.
Defrost lumpia wrappers by setting them in the fridge overnight or on the countertop at room temperature for a couple of hours.
Separate wrappers by starting at the corner and peeling back slowly to avoid ripping. Cover separated wrappers with a damp cloth to avoid drying out.
Lay a wrapper on a flat surface. Add about 3 Tbsp of filling to the bottom of the wrapper, leaving a 1/2 inch from the edge, using your fingers to form the filling into a long-like shape.
Fold over the wrapper and roll, ensuring that the roll remains tight. At about 2 inches from the top of the wrapper, add a small amount of egg wash along the top edge. Finish rolling the wrapper and seal it tightly. Cut the roll in half or thirds.
Fill a large pot with cooking oil, about 2 inches from the bottom, and heat oil to 375°.
Place lumpia into oil and allow to fry for 3 - 4 minutes. When done, lumpia should have a golden brown color and crispy outside.
Place cooked lumpia on a plate lined with paper towels to soak up excess oil.
Serve with sweet chili sauce or vinegar mixed with fresh minced garlic and black pepper.
*Note: If not cooking all uncooked lumpia or preparing in advance, store lumpia in a freezer-safe Ziploc bag for up to a month. To cook, place frozen lumpia in pre-heated oil.
