Pork Won Tons

These were incredibly flavorful and easy to make . . . a perfect finger food appetizer for any party. I had never made my own won ton dough before . . . and it was easy and fast to whip out.
Pork Filling
Recipe by: Emily

1 tsp Sesame Oil
1tsp Canola Oil
1 lb Ground Pork
2 Cloves Garlic, minced
1-2 tsp Garlic Chili Paste
2 tsp Ginger, Pureed
2 Green Onions, Minced
1 Tbsp Hoisin Sauce
2 Tbsp Honey Roasted Peanuts, chopped
2 Tbsp Cilantro, chopped
1 tsp Brown Sugar

1. Heat the oils in a wok or skillet over medium high heat. Add the garlic, ginger, green onions, and chili paste. Cook for 1 minute then add the ground pork. Use a fork to break up the pork into a fine crumb. Once pork has browned add the hoisin sauce, peanuts, cilantro, and brown sugar. Cook for 1 more minute and remove from heat.

2. Roll out half of the won ton dough very thin. Cut dough into 4 inch square. Place 1 1/2 tsp of pork filling in the middle of each square. Lightly brush 2 the edges of of each won ton square with water. Fold one corner of the dough over the filling to the opposite corner and seal over filling by pressing dough tightly. They should form a triangle.

3. Deep fry the won tons in oil until lightly browned on each side. Serve with dipping sauce and enjoy!
