Simple,easy and steamed. You may substitute any ground meat.If you can't eat ground meat, substitute ground turkey or chicken. Based on reviewer comments I have added some spices and revised amount in wonton wrapper. Rice vinegar and soy sauce is an excellent dipping sauce as suggested by the reviewer, my thanks.
- 1 bok choy, chopped very fine
- 2 lbs ground beef
- 1 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dry mustard
- 1 teaspoon lemon pepper
- 10 green onions, chopped
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1 tablespoon kikkomen light soy sauce
- 1 1⁄4 teaspoons sugar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground ginger
- 2 (8 ounce) packages wonton wrappers
- 1⁄2 cup cold water
- In large mixing bowl mix all ten ingredients. Mix with hands. Mix well.
- Take a custard cup or similar dish and place a wonton wrapper in it.
- Fill a heaping teaspoon of mixture in wrapper. (If you are filling an egg roll wrapper then it is 1/4 cup to 1/3 cup.
- Bring the sides together at the top.
- Wet the edges with water and press together
- like a hobo bag. Place on a tray.
- Fill all wonton wrappers and place on tray.
- Fill a stockpot with water and place a steamer basket on it. You may use a woven steamer basket also. When the water is steaming, place a layer of filled wontons.
- in the basket and cover. Turn heat on low and steam 15 to 20 minutes. Take out of steamer and place in a warmed serving bowl. Heat the bowl in the oven on warm. Place another layer of wontons in the steamer basket and steam the same amount of time.
- You may have to add water to the stockpot and heat to simmer again. Serve with rice and sweet and sour sauce or any dipping sauce you prefer.
- Note: If you really want some "heat" add finely crushed dried red peppers to the meat mixture but be careful on the amount added.
This wa "ok" but I think it needed a little more seasoning in the meat. Also, I love bok choy and its flavor gets lost in this. I will be trying this again and kick up the quantaties a little of the seasoning. It was good dipped in a mixture of soy sauce and rice vinegar. Oh, and I dont know what size your wonton wrappers are, but there is no way 1/4 cup of the filling will fit in mine. I used a teaspoon or so in each.
