Pork Won Tons Appetizer

Monday, December 30, 2013

With New Year's Eve tomorrow I thought we should revisit a delicious recipe that would be perfect to serve as an appetizer for a party at your home.  These are easy to prepare and delicious. 

 Pork Won Tons…

Pork Won Tons


  • 1 cup coleslaw mix
  • 2 TBS butter
  • 3/4 cup of cooked pork roast
  • Teriyaki or Soy Sauce
  • Won Ton Wrappers


In a saucepan, melt the butter. 
Add the coleslaw mix and saute for a few minutes until softened. 
Add the cooked pork and the Teriyaki or soy sauce.
Allow the mixture to cool slightly. 
Lay out your won ton wrappers and spoon about 1 TBS of the pork/coleslaw mixture into the center. 
Using your finger or a small pastry brush, apply some water to the edges of the won ton wrapper.
Fold the won ton wrapper over and seal the edges completely. 
Heat some oil in a heavy saucepan. 
Add the prepared won tons, a few at a time. 
Fry until golden brown; let them drain on a baking sheet lined with paper towels. 
Serve with hot mustard or soy sauce.  

Saute the coleslaw mix in the melted butter until softened...

Add the pork and teriyaki sauce to heat through and combine with the coleslaw mix…

Lay out your won ton wrappers and place about 1 TBSP of the pork and coleslaw mixture on one side of the won ton wrapper…

Spread some water around the edges of the won ton.  THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT…

Fold the won ton over and press to seal all the edges…

I had a tray ready to go in just a few minutes…

In a heavy saucepan, heat up some oil and start cooking your won tons.  You can also use a deep fryer, but a heavy saucepan works great...

Cook until both sides are golden brown; just a few minutes.  Remove from the frying pan and drain on a tray that is layered with paper towels…

Serve with some hot mustard or soy sauce…

I have made this recipe for company quite a few times and everyone always enjoys them.  I prepare the won tons early in the day, lining them on a baking tray.  Then I cover the won tons with a damp paper towel and place in the refrigerator till just before I know my guests are expected.   I start frying them so they're nice and hot as the guests are walking through the door.

You can also add a flavored cream cheese to the won tons for a variation.
