      Good Life, Good Food: Pulled Pork Wontons

      From the Panhandle's home for good news and great mornings, Chef Bud Andersen's recipe for Pulled Pork Wontons. Crispy Pulled Pork Wontons

      Ingredients:

      16 oz pulled pork or ground pork

      1 Tblspn minced fresh ginger root

      3 cloves garlic, minced

      2 Tblspn chopped cabbage (optional)

      1 Tblspn bicolor shredded carrots

      1 ea green onion, chopped

      1 Tblspn fresh lime juice

      1/2 tsp McCormick crushed red pepper flakes

      1 Tblspn Roland Sesame oil

      1 dash Kikkoman soy sauce

      Kosher salt and coarse ground black pepper

      1 each egg white, beaten

      2 quarts peanut or vegetable oil for frying

      Preparation:

      Combine the pork, ginger, garlic, green onion, lime juice, crushed red pepper, cabbage, carrots, sesame oil and soy sauce. Mix in a large bowl, and season with kosher salt and coarse black pepper.

      Separate the wonton wrappers and lay them out on a clean surface. Spoon 1 Tablespoon of the mixture into the center of each wrapper. Moisten the edges of the wonton wrappers with water, fold over the filling, or gather edges like a dumpling. Press together to seal, brush each wonton with egg white to seal.

      In a saut pan, add oil and preheat to 365 degrees F. Gently drop wontons into the hot oil and cook until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Remove to paper towels to drain.

      You can make a simple sauce by combining 2 Tblspn of rice wine vinegar with 1 Tblspn of soy sauce mix thoroughly to dip your wonton in. Great for tailgating or an appetizer for that dinner party! Enjoy!
