Won Tons

Another yummy Chinese recipe.

1 pkg. won ton wrappers (I like the square)

1/2 lb. pork or chicken, finely ground
1 egg, beaten
3 water chestnuts, finely chopped
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. Accent
2 finely chopped scallions
1 Tbsp. soy sauce
1/4 tsp. pepper

Mix all ingredients together. (You can add coarsely chopped ingredients--chicken, water chestnuts, scallions plus others into the food processor and blend it together rather than cutting things up individually). Fill won tons skins (1/2 - 1 tsp of meat mixture) and fry in hot vegetable oil (350) until browned. Drain on paper towels. Keep warm in oven.

2/3 c. brown sugar
2/3 c. pineapple juice
1 tsp. ketchup
1/4 c. white vinegar
1 tsp. soy sauce
1/4 tsp. Accent

Bring this mixture to a boil. Add a few pieces of green pepper, sliced onion & tomato, if desired. cook at medium heat for three minutes.

Thicken with 1 Tbsp. cornstarch diluted with 1 Tbsp. water. Cook and mix for 1 minute until sauce and vegetables are hot all through. Use for dipping won tons.
