Wonton Warrior Shines Once Again

As you know, I have been having lots of fun experimenting with wontons.  Most of mine have been dessert wontons although, I have made dairy and fish also.  This one is meat - yes meat.  Cutting down on meat, does not mean, we are not having beef wontons.

Baked Beef Wontons



Crispy Beef Wontons   -


Adapted from Taste of Home’s Fast Family Favorites
Ingredients:

4-1/2 cups finely chopped cooked beef

3/4 cup shredded carrot

1 tablespoon cornstarch

1 tablespoon and 1-1/2 teaspoons water

1 tablespoon and 1-1/2

teaspoons soy sauce

1-1/2 teaspoons ground ginger

30 – 40 wonton wrappers

3 tablespoons margarine, melted

1 tablespoon and 1-1/2 teaspoons canola oil

Plum or sweet-sour sauce

Method:

 

In a bowl, combine chopped beef and carrot .

In another bowl, combine cornstarch, water, soy sauce and ginger until smooth. Add to beef mixture; toss to coat.

Spoon 1 teaspoon of filling in the center of each wonton wrapper. Moisten edges with water. Bring opposite points together; pinch to seal.  Place on greased baking sheets. Combine butter and oil; brush over wontons. 

 

Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with plum or sweet-sour sauce.

** I made some in oil in a skillet.  These browned better than the baked and were generally softer but they were oily.


Three cheers for Wonton Warrior!
