Best Fried Pork Wontons your family will love them

Very simple to make and does not take much time at all. And best of all low low cost to make.

Prep time:10 min
cook time:10 min

won ton wraps (found with the fresh vegetable ection)
2 pork chops (can be any kind steak, loin regular)
Sauce: any oriental flavor that you like or you can use a BBQ sauce too!
salt & Pepper
cooking oil

cut pork chops up into small pieces, add them to a blender a food processor or the magic bullet. Throw in some chives for color, pour in about 1/2 cup of your favorite sauce and add salt and pepper to taste. Blend all of this until the pork is just "squishy" no lumps left. In a frying pan or a griddle add about 1/4 cup cooking oil let warm.

take each won ton (they are square) and put them at an angle, I use my fingers and grab a nice size pinch and place it in the middle of the won ton. I fold the won ton at the angle to it looks like a triangle. Take a little water on your finger and place it where the two pieces fold. Pinch or push on edges to keep them from popping open.

Now with your oil warm place the stuffed wontons in the pan and cook until both sides are nice and crispy (less if you like).

Now time to eat! I like to dip mine in a sweet and sour tangy sauce. Just perfect and kids love them.

Quick Chicken Cutlets

Boneless, skinless chicken breasts -- sometimes called cutlets -- are a boon to family chefs, a perennial kid favorite, and easy for a parent and child to prepare together. They taste great served fresh from the pan and dipped in our homemade honey mustard sauce.

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 6 ounces each)
2/3 cup fine dry bread crumbs
1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan
2 teaspoons dried basil (if you have it)
1 teaspoon dried oregano (if you have it)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 egg, beaten
2 tablespoons milk
1/2 cup flour
2 to 4 tablespoons olive oil for frying

1. Rinse the chicken breasts under running water, then place them on a double layer of paper towels and blot them dry. (Be sure to wash your hands well in warm soapy water immediately after handling raw chicken; do the same for any cutting boards or utensils that the meat comes into contact with.)

2. Place 2 of the chicken breasts inside a large, heavy-duty plastic freezer bag. Partially seal the end of the bag, leaving a slight gap so air can escape. Using the smooth head of a tenderizing mallet or a rolling pin, pound the meat in even strokes, working from the center out (be careful not to tear the plastic), to a uniform thickness of about 1/3 inch. Repeat this process with the remaining chicken in a new plastic bag. Put the pounded cutlets on a plate and set them aside.

3. Combine the bread crumbs, Parmesan, basil, oregano, salt, and pepper in a shallow medium-size bowl. Stir them to mix. In a separate shallow bowl or pie plate, beat together the egg and milk. Set both of the bowls aside.

4. Spread the flour on a plate. Arrange the breading ingredients in assembly-line fashion in this order: cutlets, flour, egg mixture, crumb mixture, empty plate. Working one piece at a time, dredge both sides of the cutlet in the flour, knocking off the excess.

5. Dip both sides of the floured cutlet in the egg mixture.

6. Coat both sides of the cutlet with the crumb mixture. Set the breaded cutlet on a clean plate and repeat the process with the remaining pieces.

7. Set a large skillet over medium-high heat and pour in enough olive oil to coat the bottom of the pan, about 2 tablespoons. Heat the oil for 2 to 3 minutes, then add the cutlets. (If your pan isn't large enough to cook 4 chicken breasts at once, cook them in batches rather than overcrowd the pan.)

Fry each side for 2 1/2 to 3 minutes, turning once, until the chicken is browned and cooked through. (To test, make a small cut in the center of the meat; there shouldn't be any traces of pink.) Remove the cutlets from the heat and serve. Makes 4 servings.

8. Make the tangy-sweet honey mustard dipping sauce: Stir together 1/4 cup deli-style mustard, 3 tablespoons sour cream, and 1 to 1 1/3 tablespoons honey, to taste.

Taco Meat...Feed the whole family

Growing up we did not have a lot of hamburger was the meat we ate. Even then we had to learn to make it last and feed all of us. So this recipe not only tastes fantastic but will make a pound of hamburger feed a family of four with each having 4 tacos.

Cook time: 10 minutes

1 pound hamburger
1/4 cup Ketchup
1 TBS flour
seasoning salt


Fully cook hamburger in skillet (season with small amount of seasoning salt). Add approx 1 tablespoon flour and about 1/4 cup Ketchup. You want the hamburger to stick together but not be thick. You can always add more floor or Ketchup as needed.

This makes a great tasting taco! fill your shell, add cheese, onions, lettuce, hotsauce...whatever you like and enjoy!

Another great idea with this meat is to make a taco burger....just add meat to hamburger buns make a sauce with mayo and Ketchup mixed...add cheese and whatever you like.

Guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser and everyone will want to know your recipe.
