Ingredients
  • 2 cups Red Cooked Oxtail meat
  • wonton wrappers
  • 1 egg, beaten with a teaspoon of water
  • vegetable oil for frying
Instructions
  1. Heat the oxtail meat slightly to make it easier to work with.
  2. On a a clean, dry surface place a few wonton wrappers.
  3. Place about 1 - 2 teaspoons of oxtail onto each wrapper.
  4. Brush a small amount of the egg onto the edges of the wrapper.
  5. Fold the wrapper in half diagonally, pressing out any air, and sealing the edges well.
  6. Repeat with the remaining wrappers and oxtail.
  7. If desired, brush the tips of the triangular dumplings with egg and fold inward to make a pentagonal dumpling.
  8. In a small pot, pour enough oil to deep fry the dumplings.
  9. Heat the oil to 350° F.
  10. Fry the dumplings in batches until golden brown and crispy, about 4 - 5 minutes.
  11. Drain well on paper towels to absorb any excess oil.
