Won Tons, a Great Appetizer!

 

Here’s one I made with my daughter last night. We had lots of fun rolling, and folding, the won ton wrappers! What you will need: a half pound of ground pork and a half pound of ground beef; one package of won ton wrappers (I believe there are 50 wrappers per package); one quarter cup of yakitori sauce; some wax paper; enough oil to submerge the won tons  (about 3-4 inches); some type of slotted or mesh scoop (to remove the won tons as they cook; paper towels for draining.

The process:

Mix beef and pork together well. Add yakitori sauce and mix in well. Place down a large sheet of wax paper. Take a won ton wrapper (flour side down) and place about a tablespoon of the meat/sauce mixture, in a ball, in one corner and tightly (but gently) roll towards opposite corner stopping just short. You will have a triangle shape just above what you have just rolled. Take the two ends of the roll and fold backwards, behind themselves. Use a little of the meat mixture to adhere the two flaps to each other. See photos for finished shape.

Repeat until all the wrappers, or meat mixture is used up. Heat oil until very hot, place as many won tons as is safe into oil for 2-3 minutes (until golden brown) and remove. Repeat process until all have been cooked. Enjoy alone or with soy sauce or see our “Poor Man’s Sweet and Sour” recipe for a dipping sauce idea. Enjoy!

Marinated Flank Steak and Peppers

Here is another easy, and tasty, dinner idea.

What you’ll need:

1.5 pounds of flank steak

1 each, red, yellow, and green bell peppers

1 large onion

2 tablespoons olive oil

spicy and or original yakitori sauce

steamed rice optional

Marinate a flank steak (one and a half pounds) overnight in the original yakitori sauce. Heat your grill on medium-high heat, spray with non-stick spray or wipe grates with some olive oil. Place the marinated flank steak on the grill for 4-6 minutes per side. While that is grilling, slice in half one each, green, red, and yellow bell pepper, remove seeds, and quarter each half lengthwise and cut each strip into thirds or quarters. Take one onion and cut into half inch thick slices then quarter. Heat two tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and place all vegetables in skillet to soften. Remove flank steak from grill and slice into strips, add to skillet then pour either spicy or original yakitori sauce over meat and veggies to coat. Remove from heat after 3-4 minutes and serve. Note: if your skillet isn’t large enough, divide ingredients into half for an easier time incorporating the sauce to caramelize. We even skipped making the rice! Enjoy!

Crock Pot Beef

Here’s one you can put in the crock pot and check on in 8-10 hours. All you need is two pounds of beef stew meat (or chuck roast, if you prefer it a little moister). Place the cubed stew meat into the crock pot, add a half cup original yakitori sauce, and one quarter cup white cooking wine, turn crock pot on at low setting, that’s it!

We served it with brown rice and sautéd vegetables. We used two bunches of broccolini; one bunch of green onions, cut into 3 inch slices; two carrots, sliced diagonally; one red bell pepper, sliced. In a large skillet, over medium-high heat, add one tablespoon of olive oil, all the vegetables, and stir occasionally for 5 minutes, then add one quarter cup of spicy yakitori sauce and stir for two to three minutes to caramelize.
