Korean wontons (called mandoo) are not hot and spicy like many of the traditional Korean dishes. Filled with inexpensive vegetables and beef, the fried dumplings are very easy to prepare and so tasty!. —Christy Lee, Horsham, Pennsylvania

Ingredients

  • 2 cups shredded cabbage
  • 1 cup canned bean sprouts
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons plus 2 tablespoons canola oil, divided
  • 1/3 pound ground beef
  • 1/3 cup sliced green onions
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons sesame seeds, toasted
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons minced fresh gingerroot
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 36 wonton wrappers
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 3 tablespoons water

Directions

  1. In a large cast-iron or other heavy skillet, stir-fry cabbage, bean sprouts and carrots in 1-1/2 teaspoons oil until tender; set aside.
  2. In a small skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink, crumbling the meat; drain. Add to the vegetable mixture. Stir in the onions, sesame seeds, ginger, garlic, sesame oil, salt and pepper.
  3. Place about 1 tablespoon of filling in the center of each wonton wrapper. Combine egg and water. Moisten wonton edges with egg mixture; fold opposite corners over filling and press to seal.
  4. Heat remaining oil in a large cast-iron skillet. Cook wontons in batches until golden brown, 1-2 minutes on each side, adding more oil if needed.
