  1. Heat the sesame oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the cabbage, onion, celery, carrots, and garlic; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the ground round and the egg; cook and stir until the meat is brown and the egg is no longer runny.
  2. Place a tortilla onto your work surface, then spoon 3 large tablespoons of the filling halfway between the bottom edge and the center of the tortilla. Fold the bottom of the tortilla snugly over the filling, then fold in the left and right edges. Roll the burrito up to the top edge, forming a tight cylinder. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.
  3. Heat the canola oil in a skillet over medium high heat. Place the tortillas seam side down until lightly browned, about 30 seconds per side. After all sides are brown, make the tortillas are seam side down again and add 1/4 cup water to the skillet. Cover, reduce the heat, and steam until all the water has evaporated.

The taste was just okay. The filling was bland so I added some soy sauce and a dash of salt. We used hoisin sauce as a dip to compliment the Juan Tons. Our family liked the texture of the wraps after they were pan fried and steamed. From there, I used the same technique for other types of hot wraps.

These were so good. They were a little bit labor intensive, since I decided to make my own tortillas, but I think the flavor was fantastic because of it and they were worth it in the end! I ended up throwing in a pinch of sugar, a squirt of soy sauce, some ginger, onion, and cayenne pepper into the filling, and left out the egg. I will definitely make these again with my changes, since everyone loved them! Give them a try! The technique alone is worth it!
