  1. Combine the pork, ginger, garlic, green onion, lime juice, crushed red pepper, sesame oil, and soy sauce in a food processor. Season mixture with salt and pepper. Pulse until pork is minced to the consistency of ground beef.
  2. Separate the wonton wrappers and lay them out on a clean surface. Spoon 1 tablespoon of the pork mixture into the center of each wrapper. Moisten the edges of the wonton wrappers with water, fold over the filling to form a triangle, and press together to seal. Brush each wonton with egg white.
  3. Pour the peanut oil into a large pot and preheat to 365 degrees F (180 degrees C).
  4. Gently drop wontons into the hot oil and cook until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Remove to paper towels to drain.

These were great. Spicy enough to keep me happy but not overly so that my boyfriend wouldn't eat them (he doesn't care for super spicy foods). I made them again a few days ago and instead of f...

Pretty good flavor, I added a little minced celery and carrot to the mixture.

I used ground pork so much faster and easier. I also put a little Chinese cooking wine in n

I love these fried won tons with duck sauce. Just like they make in the restaurants. While I'm at I usually make egg rolls and Asian chicken wings.
