Grandma would make this as a side dish for dinner and half of it would be gone before meal time. She made it with economical ground beef, but I add in some ground pork for extra flavor. Because this version has more meat in the packaging than regualr tiny, flower-shaped ones from the Chinese restaurant, the meat mixture is SLIGHTLY precooked; remember that you will also be deep-frying afterwards so don't over cook meat mixture. Feel free to add/change/delete ingredients to your liking.
