READY IN: 1hr 5mins




  • Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat until hot.
  • Add ground pork and brown until no longer pink.
  • Add ginger root, soy sauce, 1 tablespoon sesame oil, sherry, beaten egg, 2 tablespoons minced flat-leaf parsley, garlic powder, 4 thinly sliced scallions, salt and pepper to taste.
  • Continue cooking 3 to 5 minutes.

  • Remove from heat, mix thoroughly and allow to cool slightly.
  • That is your filling for the wontons.
  • Place a small amount of water into a small bowl to use for sealing the wontons.
  • Place a tablespoon or more of the filling into the center of each wrapper.
  • Moisten edges with water, fold up corner of wrapper over the filling and press firmly to seal.
  • It will look like a triangle.
  • Hold filled wonton by the tip with the longest side down.
  • Gently wrap corners around filled part, moisten with water and gently pinch to seal.
  • The finished wonton resembles a nurse’s hat.
  • Set wontons aside on an oiled plate& continue with remaining wontons.
  • The reason for oiling the plate is to prevent wontons from sticking.
