Awesome Low Fat Baked Pork & Apple Wontons

Andy Anderson !


Okay, I’m in the Julia Childs school of thought, and it goes something like this: You can never have enough butter and cream. I’m not sure if she really said that, but many of her recipes emulate that philosophy.
With that said, I do have some recipes that are tasty; plus they are relatively low in fat and calories. And this just happens to be one of them.
Tasty bits of apple and pork, nestled inside a wonton wrapper, and baked not fried.

And with all great taste, you don't have to tell your guests that they're low fat.

So you ready…
Let’s get into the kitchen.

How to Make Awesome Low Fat Baked Pork & Apple Wontons


  • 1Combine the ingredients for the dipping sauce in a small bowl, and set aside.
  • 2Heat the oil in a sauté pan over medium heat.
  • 3Add the scallion, and cook until softened, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  • 4Add the pork, and continue to cook for an additional 2 or 3 minutes.
  • 5Add the grated apple, and continue to cook until all the meat is browned, about 3 or 4 minutes.
  • 6Remove the pan from the heat, and then incorporate the plum and oyster sauces, and the currents (raisins, dried cranberries). Allow the sauce to cool slightly before proceeding.
  • 7Chef’s Note: What are currants? Currants are dried, dark red, seedless grapes. They are dried to produce a black, tiny shrivelled, flavor-packed bit. Currants are known as Zante currants in the States.
  • 8Lay a wonton wrapper on a clean dry surface, and then add about 1/2 tablespoon of the mixture to the center of the wrapper, and brush the edges lightly with egg.
  • 9Chef’s Note: There are about as many way to fold a wonton wrapper, as there are stars in the sky. The easiest way would be to fold the bottom half over the top to create a triangle, and then bring in the side corners, as if they are two arms hugging.
  • 10Place a rack in the middle position, and preheat the oven to 375f (190c).
  • 11Place wontons on a parchment-lined baking sheet, and bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • 12Serve immediately with the dipping sauce, if using.
  • 13Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
