  1. In a large frying pan, brown the beef in 2 tablespoons vegetable oil over medium heat. Mix in water chestnuts, onion, celery and Worcestershire sauce until combined; there is no need to cook the vegetables. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  2. Place one tablespoon of the beef mixture into the centre of each wonton wrapper. Fold the sides of the wrapper over the filling, then roll the wrapper up around the filling egg roll style.
  3. In an electric deep-fat fryer or a heavy saucepan, heat oil to 190 degrees C. Deep fry wontons until golden brown; fry in batches to maintain an even temperature. Once cooked, place on kitchen towels to drain. Serve warm.
