5 Add cooked pork; sauté for 1 minute. Add 1 1/2 cups reserved pork broth. Season with salt. Add atsuete oil and simmer for 3 to 5 minutes.


6 Add cauliflower and carrots; cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Add snow peas and Baguio beans; cook for 3 minutes. Add fried sweet potatoes, fried jicama, and cabbage. Mix and cook for 5 minutes.


7 Make the Lumpia Sauce: Boil 2 to 3 cups water in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Add soy sauce, brown sugar, and salt. Bring to a boil. Add cornstarch mixture; simmer until thick. Remove from heat. Stir in garlic.



8 Place lettuce then vegetable mixture on serving dishes. Sprinkle withchicharon, peanuts, and garlic, if desired. Top with cilantro. Drizzle lumpia sauce over or serve on the side.
