Starters

Won Tons

Whether your looking for a great starter for a party or an accompaniment to a larger meal, Won Tons are the way to go

Who doesn’t love these little hand held delights of tasty Asian flavored meat in a crispy shell

And the best part is that they are not the hard to make!

Especially when using store bought Won Ton wrappers!

Lets start with 2 pounds of ground pork

Next we will need 4 tablespoons of teriyaki sauce, 4 tablespoons of soy sauce, 4 tablespoons of honey, 2 tablespoon of fish sauce, 2 tablespoons of chopped green onion (scallions), 1 tablespoon of fresh grated ginger and 2 teaspoons of sesame oil

Add all the above ingredients to the meat

If the mixture seems loose you can add 1/4 cup of Panko (Japanese breadcrumb) as needed

20171231_123346

Using your hands mix the meat gently to incorporate all ingredients

Refrigerate the mixture for 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld

You can also make the mixture a day ahead and refrigerate overnight

Preheat your oven 350 F

Start with a small bowl of water, Won Ton wrappers and 1/2 tablespoon for measuring out the meat mixture

You will want to place a heaping 1/2 tablespoon of the meat mixture in the center of the Won Ton

Dip your finger tip into the water and wet all four outside edges of the wrapper

Bring the top and bottom points together forming a triangle

Pinch the sides together to form a seal

Wet the tips on the right and left points of the triangle and fold inward and pinch to seal

Now we have a Won Ton!

It will look a bit like a little hat

Now that we have made one it is assembly line time!

You can definitely use some family members here to crank these out!

If there is any meat mixture left over pack it up and hide it immediately, then when no one is around form yourself a delicious little Asian pork burger, fry it up and eat it without anyone ever knowing what happened (insert villainous laugh here)

You can always fry or steam these but we are going to bake them

Spray some cooking oil on a parchment lined sheet pan and add in the Won Tons

Spray the Won Tons with a little cooking oil as well

Place in the oven and cook until lightly browned, 20-25 minutes

Yum!

Now we serve this with a more traditional Duck Sauce, but we also make a sweet and sour sauce out of chili sauce and grape jelly

Yep… you read that right.  Grape jelly and chili sauce.  You’ve just got to trust me on this one

We will need 1 cup of grape jelly and one cup of chili sauce

20171231_183317

Place this over medium heat and cook (while whisking) until the jelly melts down and the flavors meld

Remove and allow to sit until the sauce cools a bit and starts to thicken

And that’s it!!

Delicious and tasty Won Tons!!

We served this with our dipping sauces on the side!!
