How to Make Traditional Filipino Lumpia

  1. Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, sauté until golden.
  2. Add the meat and sauté until it turns brown.
  3. Add the carrot, soy sauce, salt, and pepper. Stir and cook for another 5-7 minutes.

  8. Place the cooked Lumpia on paper towels to remove excess oil.
  9. Serve the Lumpia hot with the dipping sauce.
