What You Need:
1/4 lb. ground pork
1/2 C frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
2 T green onions, chopped fine
1/2 t soy sauce
1/2 t dark sesame oil
1/8 t ginger
1/8 t salt
1/8 t sugar
8 wonton wrappers
1 T canola oil
1/2 C water
1/2 C Asian Plum sauce
1 T white wine vinegar
1 t brown sugar, packed
How to Make It:
Place the pork into a mixing bowl.
Add the spinach and green onion and slightly mix together with your hands.
Pour the soy sauce and sesame oil over the mixture.
Sprinkle in the ginger, salt and sugar.
Mixing with your hands combined the ingredients together well.
Fill each wonton wrapper with the mixture.
Lightly moisten the outside edge of each wrapper with water so they will seal.
Fold the wrapper in half and enclose the filling, pinching the ends and center to hold in the filing.
Pinch the dough towards the center to seal the remaining edges.
Place a large skillet over medium high heat and allow the skillet to heat up.
Add the oil and allow it to heat to hot but not smoking.
Place the wontons into the hot oil.
Cook the wontons for 2 minutes or just until the bottoms begin to brown.
Pour the water around the outside edge of the skillet but not over the wontons.
Cover and cook 8 minutes undisturbed.
Remove the cover and shaking the skillet continue to cook the wontons 2 minutes until all the water has been absorbed and they are a crispy brown.
Remove from the skillet and place bottom side up on a serving plate.
Place the Plum sauce and vinegar into a small mixing bowl.
Add the sugar and whisk the mixture until the sugar has completely dissolved.
Serve the sauce as a dip with the wontons.
Makes a delicious treat that will have your other half salivating for seconds!
