Ingredients

Wontons

  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon cane sugar
  • 1 teaspoon white pepper, ground
  • 1 1/2 ounces chopped Chinese chives
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons Shaoxing wine
  • 40 squares wonton wrappers

Sauce

  • 1/4 cup medicated chili oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground Sichuan peppercorn
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 3 tablespoons Chinkiang vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
  • 1/3 cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons chopped peanuts

Instructions

  • To make wonton filling, combine ground pork, salt, sugar, white pepper, Chinese chives, garlic, and Shaoxing wine in a medium bowl and knead until uniform, about 1 minute.
  • To form the wontons, set a wrapper on your work surface in the shape of a diamond. Place a tablespoon of filling in the center of the wrapper. Gently moisten the edge of the wrapper with water. Dry your hands before folding one corner of the wonton wrapper up to form a triangle. Seal the edges, pushing all air out as you work. Pull the left and right corners together and pinch to seal. Transfer wonton onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Repeat until finished.
  • To make the sauce, combine medicated chili oil, ground Sichuan pepper, toasted sesame oil, Chinkiang vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, and garlic in a small bowl and mix well. Set aside until ready to serve.
  • To cook, bring a large pot of water to boil. Add 12 wontons in to cook, about 4 minutes. Cooked wontons should float. Drain wontons and transfer to serving bowls.
  • Spoon the spicy sauce on top and make sure all wontons are covered. Garnish with toasted sesame seeds, cilantro, and chopped peanuts.
