Fried Won Ton with Sweet and Sour Sauce

1/2 lb ground pork
1 clove garlic
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp mirin – in the Oriental section of the grocery store (or water)
dash pepper
2 T water
1 egg 
1 T cornstarch

Mix thoroughly.

Place small amount (or it won’t seal) meat mixture in won ton skin and fold.  Deep fry; drain and serve with sweet and sour sauce.


1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp soy
1/2 c vinegar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup ketchup
4 T soup water (bouillon)
3 T waterstarch (2 T water to 1 T cornstarch)
2 T oil

Cook sauce until thick.

NOTE:  Once meat is in the won ton skin, deep fry quickly.  If meat mixture sits in the skin too long with will soften the skin and either bubble when you cook it or make a hole in the wrapper.  Don’t get oil too hot when deep frying as it is important to make sure the pork is thoroughly cooked.
