Recipe by Montana Heart Song
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.

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.
- 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
Directions See How It's Made
- 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.
