  • 2 green onions, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce

  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon chili oil (adjust to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

Making the Wonton Filling:
  1. Prepare the Ingredients:
    • Finely chop the napa cabbage, green onions, garlic, and grate the ginger.
  2. Mix the Filling:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine ground pork, napa cabbage, green onions, garlic, ginger, soy sauce, oyster sauce, and sesame oil. Mix well until all ingredients are evenly incorporated.
  3. Assemble the Wontons:
    • Take a wonton wrapper and place a teaspoon of the pork mixture in the center.
    • Moisten the edges of the wrapper with water, then fold it in half to form a triangle, pressing the edges to seal.
    • Bring the two corners of the triangle together and press to seal, creating a classic wonton shape. Repeat with the remaining filling and wrappers.
  4. Cook the Wontons:
    • Bring a pot of water to a boil. Drop the wontons into the boiling water and cook until they float to the surface, usually about 4-5 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon.
