Total Time:35 mins
16 oz (450g) pork tenderloin
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger root
3 minced garlic cloves
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 chopped green onion
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
12 oz (340g) square wonton wrappers
2 quarts (2 liters) peanut oil
1 beaten egg white
Soy sauce, as needed
Salt and black pepper, to taste
Cut the meat into 1 inch (2.5 cm) cubes.
Combine it with the garlic, green onion, sesame oil, ginger, lime juice, crushed red pepper, and soy sauce in a food processor.
Season the mixture with salt and pepper.
Pulse until the meat is minced to the consistency of ground beef.
Separate the wrappers and lay them out on a clean surface.
Spoon 1 tablespoon of the filling mixture into the middle of each one.
Moisten the edges of the wrappers with water, fold over the filling to form a triangle, and press together to seal.
Brush each one with egg white.
Pour the peanut oil into a large pot and preheat to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C).
Gently drop the wontons into the hot oil and cook until golden brown, about 5 minutes.
