4. Fill each wonton with 1-1/2 Tbsp of the beef mixture (about 3/4 full). Gather the edges and press to seal to form a cup. Deep fry until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.

Lusog Notes

This dish is high in protein that is needed for growth, development and repair of body tissues. It is also high in vitamin A that helps prevent infections by keeping the immune system healthy.

Chef's Tip

While working on the wonton cups, cover the wonton sheets with a damp towel to keep them moist. The wonton wrappers easily dry out and will turn brittle and difficult to work with.
