Hello you,  Come on in!  This is Day 18th or letter "S" of the A-Z Blogging Challenge, my theme is Crowd Pleasing Appetizers.  Make yourself comfortable... Take my hand, let's go explore the Succulent Rangoon With a Twist.

Succulent Rangoon with a Twist

What is rangoon you ask?  Rangoon is a deep-fried dumpling or wanton that are generally stuffed with a combination of crab meat and cream cheese with seasoning varying from garlic, steak sauce, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce and onion or garlic powder.  For this delicious treat I'm about to show you has a twist.  Instead of using crab meat, we'll use ground beef with no cream cheese.  Let's get to it!

All you need are as follows:

1 TB butter

1 lb ground beef

2 garlic cloves minced

1 carrot shredded

1 celery stock finely chopped

1 onion finely chopped

½ pack of thin wanton wrapper

2 TB soy sauce

1 tsp sesame seed oil

plum sauce for dipping

oil for deep frying


Cook the meat according to the directions from Naughty Nacho Supreme until you reach this point, add soy sauce and sesame seed oil, mix to combine.  Cook for a few minutes, set aside to cool.
