Make certain to cut the florets very small for this, no need to pre-cook the beef/pork mixture, it will cook in the oil. This recipe should make about 40-45 wontons using 1 heaping teaspoon of meat mixture, the recipe can easily be doubled. You can use all ground pork (1/2-pound) if desired. Plan ahead the meat mixture must be chilled for a minumum of 4 hours or overnight before using. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce --- I have made these many times in the past they are really good and makes a great finger food for a get together! :)

So good! These dumplings were among the best I've ever had in my own kitchen! I made a simple soy/rice vinegar style dipping sauce to go alongside, and I used ground turkey in place of the other meat. This was a great recipe; I will be making them again.
- 1 1⁄2 cups fresh broccoli florets (can use frozen)
- 1⁄4 lb ground beef
- 1⁄4 lb ground pork
- 3 medium green onions (very finely chopped, or use 1 medium yellow onion)
- 2 -3 teaspoons minced fresh garlic (or to taste)
- 2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 egg, slightly beaten
- 3⁄4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons salt (or to taste)
- 1 (12 ounce) package wonton wrappers
- oil (for frying)
Directions See How It's Made
- Steam the broccoli florets until just tender; drain and then chop very small.
- In a medium bowl combine ground beef and pork with chopped broccoli and all remaining ingredients; mix well to combine; chill for a minumum of 4 hors (or overnight).
- Place several wrappers on a surface; brush edges lightly with water.
- Place 1 heaping teaspoon of the meat mixture into the center of each wrapper.
- Fold the warppers diagonally in half, pressing edges to seal.
- Place wontons on waxed paper.
- Repeat with remaining meat mixture and wrappers.
- Heat oil in a large heavy skillet; add in the wontons and fry until they are golden and the filling is cooked through (about 3 minutes per side).
- You can keep them warm in a 250 degree oven while frying the remaining wontons.
- **NOTE** it is important not to use more than 1 heaping teaspoon of meat filling in the wrappers otherwise the filling will not cook through thoroughly.
