Easy Pork and Veggie Won Tons

During my childhood, my mom would make these Pork & Veggie Won Tons for New Year’s Eve every year. It was something special that I looked forward to each year. They are so good, you can’t just eat one! And the ketchup and horseradish sauce add to the delicious flavor. This recipe was given to our family from one of my best friend’s mother. She is a wonderful cook, and has shared some delicious Asian recipes with our family. Making these Pork & Veggie Won Tons has become a tradition and now I make them for my children every year for New Year’s Eve.

These Pork & Veggie Won Tons are perfect to take as appetizers for holiday parties, New Year’s Eve, Chinese New Year or football tailgate parties. They really are a yummy appetizer to have wherever you go.
