Crispy Won Ton with Sweet Sour Sauce

So the left over wontons that my sister made were the next days appetizers by deep frying them in hot oil and making a simple basic Chinese sweet sour sauce for dipping.

Looks good sis!  Keep it up!


1/4 cup white or rice vinegar
4 TBsp brown sugar
1-2 TBsp ketchup
1 TBsp soy sauce
1 TBsp cornstarch mixed with 1 cup water


Mix the vinegar, brown sugar, ketchup, and soy sauce together and bring to a boil in a small pot. Mix together the cornstarch and water, add to the other ingredients and stir to thicken.

You can also add 1 green pepper, cut into chunks, and pineapple chunks as desired after adding the cornstarch. For a thicker sauce, increase the cornstarch to 4 teaspoons while keeping the water constant.

Adjust for sweetness or tartness by adding more or less sugar or vinegar etc.

Pork/Shrimp Wontons:

1lb. ground pork
1/4 lbs raw shrimp (chopped)
1 tsp sugar
1 tbsp cornstarch
1 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tbsp sesame oil
chopped green onion
35-40 wonton wrappers

Enjoy let's kaukau!!  :D
