  1. Mix pulled pork and onion together in a bowl.
  2. Spoon pork mixture, about 1 teaspoon per wonton, onto the center of each wonton wrapper. Moisten 2 of the 4 sides of each wrapper with water and fold wrapper over filling, forming a triangle. Press to seal.
  3. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) or until almost smoking.
  4. Working in batches, fry wontons in the hot oil until golden brown, about 1 minute. Transfer cooked wontons to crumpled paper towels. Serve immediately with barbeque sauce.


  • Cook's Note:
  • If you prepare wontons in advance, cover and refrigerate the filled wrappers until ready to fry.
  • Editor's Note:
  • We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. Amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and specific type of oil used.

Very delicious. I added my bbq sauce and some sea salt to the pulled pork before frying. Turned out great.

These were great! The only thing I would change is to add a shake or two of a Memphis type rub on your pork before adding to the wrapper. It adds a ton of flavor. Also be sure to use a BBQ sauce...
