  • Saute ground pork in the same skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Add back the sauteed onion and garlic; mix thoroughly. Pour mixture into a large bowl; add mixed vegetables, green beans, cabbage, and celery. Mix thoroughly; let filling cool for 10 minutes.

  • Wrap 1 to 2 tablespoons of the filling mixture in a lumpia wrapper. Repeat until all the filling or wrappers are finished.

  • Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Fry as many lumpia as desired in the hot oil until golden brown and crispy, 3 to 5 minutes per batch.
