Ingredients:  
2 1/2 lbs. ground pork
1 piece Knorr Pork Cube
50 pieces lumpia wrapper

2 cups cooking oi

Directions:
Directions:
1. Place a wok or large skillet over high heat, and pour in 1 tablespoon vegetable oil. Cook pork, stirring frequently, until no pink is showing. Remove pork from pan and set aside. Drain grease from pan, leaving a thin coating. Cook garlic and onion in the same pan for 2 minutes. Stir in the cooked pork, carrots, green onions, and cabbage. Season with pepper, salt, garlic powder, and soy sauce. Remove from heat, and set aside until cool enough to handle.
2. Place three heaping tablespoons of the filling diagonally near one corner of each wrapper, leaving a 1 1/2 inch space at both ends. Fold the side along the length of the filling over the filling, tuck in both ends, and roll neatly. Keep the roll tight as you assemble. Moisten the other side of the wrapper with water to seal the edge. Cover the rolls with plastic wrap to retain moisture.
3. Heat a heavy skillet over medium heat, add oil to 1/2 inch depth, and heat for 5 minutes. Slide 3 or 4 lumpia into the oil. Fry the rolls for 1 to 2 minutes, until all sides are golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve immediately.

Personal Notes:
When preparing Lumpia, one must be optimistic and patient. If the preparer of Lumpia is resentful, the rolls will be soft, undesirable and make those who consume it, grimace at the unpleasant texture and moisture. The crunch of the first bite into a warm freshly cooked lumpia, transports you home, and sends you back to those fulfilling memories spent with family. The sweet aroma fills my nose as I start to massage and mix the wonderful blend of meet and vegetables. Lumpia is always present at any gathering with Filipino Relatives according to what my Nanay Zeny always said, as she believed that it's a delicacy that shouldn't be missed. It puts a smile on anyone's face and I for one stand by that. The Lumpia is a roll packed with savory flavors of perfection that was made with time, effort and diligence. The crackling of the rigid golden brown wrap is like heaven in the ears of those who take the bite.
