About this recipe: These delicious morsels are made by filling wonton wrappers with seasoned minced beef, then fried until crispy. Serve with a side of salsa and guacamole if you like.


Serves: 8 

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 450g minced beef
  • 70g fresh coriander, chopped

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:45min 

  1. In a large, heavy frying pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add chopped garlic, onions and pepper; saute until soft.
  2. Add meat; cook and stir until browned. Drain off excess fat. Stir in passata and coriander. Simmer until coriander wilts. Remove from heat and cool until mixture can be handled.
  3. Wrap 2 to 3 tablespoons of meat in each wrapper to form a triangle. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
  4. Heat vegetable oil in a wok or deep fry pan to 168 degrees C. Fry parcels in hot oil until golden brown. When done, transfer to plates lined with kitchen towels to drain.
