  • Ready In

  1. Mix together the ground pork, celery, carrot, onion, and garlic in a bowl. Season with salt, pepper, and soy sauce; mix with your hands until well blended.
  2. Separate the wonton wrappers and lay them out on a clean surface. Spoon 1 teaspoon of the pork mixture into the center of each wrapper. Moisten the edges of the wonton wrappers with beaten egg, fold over the filling to form a triangle, and press together to seal. Place the finished wontons on a baking sheet.
  3. Heat the canola oil in a deep fryer or large saucepan to 365 degrees F (180 degrees C).
  4. Fry the wontons, about 6 at a time, until they turn golden brown and float to the top, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove, and drain on a paper towel-lined plate.

Footnotes

  • Editor's Note
  • If you prefer not to deep fry, these wontons may also be boiled in broth or soup until they float, 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

I have made these three times now and everyone keeps asking for more. For dipping, I poured terayaki sauce in small individual bowls. TIP: I froze two dozen UNCOOKED (place them in layers in ...

These were amazing! I did make a slight change though, instead of soy sauce I used Sesame Ginger dressing. I served these with "Sweet and Sour Sauce 1" and they were a perfect pair. Thanks!

These are great. My minor changes were to leave out the celery, and I used green onion. I also added 2 tsp of minced ginger and 4tbsp minced garlic. I also made a sauce using a 4 to 1 ration of...

Pretty good, it seems like it's missing something though, kind of bland. This recipe worked well both fried and in soup. I only used about 1/2 of the filling for one package of wonton wrappers...

These were simple and yet very good. One batch makes alot so I cooked them all and froze them into dozens for later snacking. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

These were fabulous! DH and I made these together tonight. I had to run and buy a second package of wrappers so none of the meat mixture would go to waste. Next time we'll use one and a half ...

added fresh ginger= dee-lish-ious!
