Lumpiang Hubad refers to a Filipino vegetable dish. It is basically composed of the same ingredients used to cook lumpiang sariwa. The difference between the two dishes is the wrapper.
The name of this dish is literally translated as “naked lumpia”. It got its name from the absence of lumpia wrapper, which should have acted as a clothing that holds all the components together.
I used the same sweet sauce for this recipe. It complements the dish. I enjoy eating this dish with warm white rice.
How to Cook Lumpiang Hubad
There are two easy processes involved. The first is to cook the pork and vegetables. The second process is to make the lumpia sauce.
Start by heating oil in a cooking pot. We’ll be sauteeing the onion and garlic. You know that this step is completed when the onion starts to soften and the garlic gradually browns. This is your queue to add the pork.
I suggest to slice the pork into small pieces. This helps it cook faster. Boiling it also helps a lot to make it tender. The next step is to add water and let it boil. I also add a piece of Knorr Pork cube to make my dish taste great. Cook the pork in a covered pan until the water completely evaporates.
The veggies are added next. Put parsley, carrot, and kamote into the cooking pot. Saute it for a few seconds and then add around half a cup of water. Cook it for a couple of minutes on a covered pot and then add long green beans and cabbage. We’ll do the same thing, cover the pot and let the veggies cook for 5 minutes.
I use fish sauce and ground black pepper to season my lumpiang hubad. Salt can also be used as an alternative to fish sauce. The sinkamas or jicama is added after seasoning the dish so that it remains crisp.
Now, make the sauce by diluting cornstarch with a few tablespoons of water. Next is to boil1 ½ cups water in a saucepan. Add soy sauce and crushed garlic and cook for 2 minutes. Add brown sugar and the diluted cornstarch. Don’t forget to stir while cooking. Continue to cook until desired consistency is achieved.
