PORK FRIED WON TONS

 

  • Cooking Time: 1 hour
  • Servings: a lot
  • Preparation Time: 1 hour

Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground pork (or turkey but not just white meat)
  • 1 bunch green onions chopped well
  • garlic powder to taste, be generous
  • ground pepper, just 2-3 twists of the grinder
  • a pinch of sea salt
  • ground ginger to taste, maybe a half to one teaspoon
  • won ton wrappers--this will fill about 1 3/4 packages of skins
  • canola oil

Directions

  • Mix all ingredients except for wrappers and allow to sit in the refridgerator for at least 8 hours so the flavors meld.
  • Put about 3/4 teaspoon of stuffing on each won ton wrapper and fold any way that you feel comfortable with.
  • You can seal them or not. My friend does but I don't.
  • Heat the canola oil in a fry pan, about 3" deep to just under medium heat.
  • Fry the wontons slowly, turning frequently until they are lightly browned and you know the stuffing is cooked through.
  • If you fry them too fast the skins will be too dark and crispy and the insides will not be done.
  • Drain well.
  • These can be reheated in the microwave for 40-50 seconds and they can be frozen once assembled and saved for later.

Notes

When I moved to Florida I couldn't get my stuffed won tons so I had to make my own. I made up this recipe but you can add just about anything you want to it.
