Vegetable oil 2 Tablespoon
Minced garlic 1 Tablespoon
Minced ginger 1 Teaspoon
Lean ground pork 1/2 Pound
Shredded chinese cabbage 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Chayote 1 Small , peeled and shredded
Green onion with tops 3 , slivered
Chicken broth 2 Tablespoon (If Needed)
Dry sherry/Chinese rice wine 1 Tablespoon
Sesame oil 1 Teaspoon

1. Combine the dipping sauce ingredients (except the cornstarch solution) in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Add the cornstarch solution and cook, stirring, until the sauce boils and thickens. Remove from the heat.

2. Cut the sausage, potato, carrot, and jicama into match-stick pieces. Place a wok or wide frying pan over medium-high heat until hot. Add 2 tablespoons of oil, swirling to coat the sides of the pan. Add the garlic and ginger and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 10 seconds. Add the pork, sausage, and potato and stir-fry until the pork is browned and crumbly and the potato is soft, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the cabbage, chayote, carrot, jicama, and green onions; stir-fry until the carrot is crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Add broth if the mixture becomes too dry. Stir in the soy sauce, sherry, and sesame oil and add the cornstarch solution. Cook, stirring, until the sauce boils and thickens. Transfer the filling to a bowl and refrigerate until cool.

3. Lay a wrapper on the table with one corner toward you; keep the remaining wrappers covered to prevent drying. Mound about 1/3 cup of filling across the middle of the wrapper, stopping 1 inch from the corners. Fold the bottom corner over the filling to cover, then fold over the right and left corners. Roll over once to enclose the filling. Brush the remaining triangle of the wrapper with egg and fold over to seal. Cover the filled lumpia with a damp cloth while filling the remaining wrappers.

4. Heat the oven to 200°. Set a wok in a ring stand and add vegetable oil to a depth of about 2 inches. Heat the oil to 360°; adjust the heat to medium-high. Fry the lumpia, half at a time, turning occasionally, until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Keep the fried rolls warm in the oven while cooking the remaining rolls. Meanwhile, reheat the dipping sauce.
