Recipe for Mandu


1/2 lb lean ground pork
1 each onion, chopped
1 tablespoon oyster sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper
2 pinch five-spice powder *
1 pkg wonton wrappers *
1 each egg, beaten
3 cup vegetable oil (or canola oil)


* Available from Asian markets and many supermarkets.

Brown the ground pork in a skillet and drain the oil. Mix the meat with the chopped onion, oyster sauce, sesame oil, sugar, white pepper and five-spice powder. Mix well.

Separate the wonton wrappers. Moisten the edge of a wrapper with beaten egg. Place a teaspoon of the filling mixture in the center of the wrapper and fold the wrapper in half to form a triangle. Make sure the air bubbles have been pressed out and the edges are sealed. Repeat with the remaining wrappers and filling mixture.

Deep fry in vegetable oil at high temperature until golden brown, being careful not to overcook or they will turn into blackened chunks. Serve as appetizers with a sweet and sour sauce of your choice.
