bowl filled with pork fried wontons

Best Ever Pork Fried Wonton Recipe

Each fried wonton is filled with a juicy flavorful bite of pork and green onions, accented with soy and sesame flavors. They're wonderfully crispy around the edges, but chewy and toothsome where the wonton wrapper dough puffs around the filling.

Calories 28 kcal


  • ½ lb sausage or ground pork
  • 1 Tablespoon finely chopped green onions
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 Tablespoon water
  • 1 package wonton skins
  • 3 cups vegetable oil for frying


  1. Mix all ingredients, except vegetable oil and wonton skins, together in a bowl. Use a spoon or your hands to combine the ingredients.

  2. Put 1 teaspoon of pork mixture in the center of a wonton wrapper. Moisten the edges of the wonton wrapper with water, and fold to form a triangle. Seal and pinch corners together to make dumplings.

  3. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet or cast iron pan over medium high heat. When oil is hot, almost bubbling, add wontons in batches, being careful not to crowd the pan.

  4. Fry in batches in bubbling oil until golden brown and cooked through, then remove and drain on a plate lined with paper towels.

  5. Serve with a dipping sauce made from equal parts mustard and honey, plus soy sauce to taste. These are also good with soy sauce and sriracha and hot Chinese mustard.
