    This is my mother in law's Lumpia recipe. I think it's been about 15 years since we last made them, and it is amazing how after all that time the aroma and taste brings you back in time!

    1 package of lumpia wrappers
    1lb ground beef
    1/2 lb ground sausage
    1 pkg fresh bean sprouts
    3 med carrots, chopped
    1 lg onion chopped
    1 can waterchestnuts, drained and chopped
    2 egg yolks
    Reserve egg whites in a small dish
    salt and pepper to taste
    MSG (optional)

    Mix all ingredients in a frying pan and cook on low until juices stop producing.

    Roll about 1 Tablespoon in each wrapper. Peel wrappers and roll out 5-10 at a time if you are doing this alone, but this is a fun 2 person cooking event so I highly recommend one person peeling the wrappers and the other rolling. If you peel all the wrappers first they will dry out so if you are alone, peel and roll in small batches.

    Seal each wrapper with remaining egg white.

    Grandma Sally cuts her wrappers in half and just rolls without tucking the sides, with a little less filling in each one. It makes more lumpia!

    However, we opted to do it traditional style.

    Fry in oil at 350 degrees until golden brown.

    For dipping sauce, we do two different varieties. One way is soy sauce in one dish, and Sriracha in another. Dip your lumpia in the Sriracha, then dip into the soy sauce. This is a spicy tangy and utterly delicious combination! The other is to either buy or make your own Sweet and Sour sauce (see recipe below).

    What is Sriracha? Here is a picture of it:

    Sweet, Sour and Spicy Dipping Sauce:

    1/2 cup water
    1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
    1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes
    1/2 cup sugar
    dash of Cayenne pepper
    two dashes of Tabasco
    2-3 minced fine garlic cloves
    1 Tablespoon Cornstarch

    Mix all ingredients together in a saucepan, whisk well. Cook on low and continue to whisk to make sure all lumps are gone. Careful not to walk away from the mixture too long, once it starts to bubble it becomes a very hot syrup that can easily bubble! Handle with care and keep whisking until the cloudy color from the cornstarch and sugar is gone. 1-2 drops of red food color gives it a pretty color as well.
