Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat 1 1/2 teaspoons oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add cabbage, bean sprouts, and carrots; saute until tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer vegetable mixture to a large bowl.

  • Place beef in the same skillet; cook and stir until no longer pink, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain beef into the bowl with the vegetable mixture. Add green onions, beaten egg, garlic, sesame oil, sesame seeds, salt, pepper, and ginger. Mix filling well.

  • Separate and place wonton wrappers onto a flat work surface. Spoon 1 tablespoon of the filling onto the center of each wrapper. Use your finger or a pastry brush to lightly moisten edges of wonton wrappers with water. Fold one corner of the wrapper over the filling onto the opposite corner to form a triangle. Press edges together to seal wontons.

  • Heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a large saucepan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Place wontons in the hot oil; fry until lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes per side.
