Taiwanese Won tons – 台湾式のワンタン

I make these Taiwanese won tons often. These are my kids’ favorite “non-American” food, even though they are (covertly) loaded with veggies. I learned how to make them from two independent sources at around the same time when I was a grad student at Penn State, so these must be authentic: a Taiwanese grad student, and two Taiwanese-Japanese sisters who were in the English-as-a-Second-Language program at Penn State. I grated and chopped all the veggies by hand back then, but I use a food processor now. Here is how.

Grate or finely-process a generous piece of fresh ginger root.

Grate or finely-process a small carrot. Mix in.

Chop or lightly process several cabbage leaves. Mix in.

Chop or lightly process a small onion. Mix in.

Mix in or process-in 1 lbs ground meat (I use pork).

Mix in some salt, pepper, soy sauce, sake (or sherry), and sesame oil.

Wrap the above filling into won ton rappers, and deep-fry or boil until they are done!
