- Heat ¼ cup vegetable oil in a wok or large pan over medium-high heat. Sauté onions until soft and fragrant. Add garlic; sauté until light brown.
- Add chorizo; cook until soft, about 3 minutes. Add shrimp; cook until color changes to pink, about 2 minutes.
- Add cooked pork; sauté for 1 minute. Add 1½ cups reserved pork broth. Season with salt. Add atsuete oil and simmer for 3 to 5 minutes.
- Add carrots and cauliflower; 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, cover, and cook for 5 minutes.
- Make the lumpia sauce: Boil 2 to 3 cups water in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Add soy sauce, washed sugar, and salt. Bring to a boil. Add cornstarch mixture; simmer until thick. Remove from heat. Stir in garlic.
- vegetable mixture on serving dishes. Top with lettuce and cilantro. Sprinkle with chicharon, peanuts, and garlic, if desired. Drizzle lumpia sauce over or serve on the side.
