Hot Sesame Pork on Mixed Greens

I just found this recipe in one of my cookbooks and wanted to share it with you all.

Hot Sesame Pork on Mixed Greens

1/2 (16 ounces) package wonton wrappers
2 pounds boneless pork loin, trimmed
3/4 cup sesame seeds, divided
1 cup vegetable oil, divided

1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/4 cup dark sesame oil, divided
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
10 to 12 small green onions, sliced
1 bok choy, shredded
Mixed Greens

*Cut wonton wrappers into 1/2 inch strips; cut pork into 3 x 1 inch strips. Set aside.

*Toast 1/2 cup sesame seeds in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, 2 to 3 minutes; remove from skillet.

*Pour 1/2 cup vegetable oil into skillet; heat to 375 degrees. Fry wonton strips in batches until golden brown. Drain on paper towels; set aside. Drain skillet.

Ah, perfect, Sizzlin!

I have everything already, except the wonton wrappers, which I will pick up tomorrow. Love when I have all the stuff to make a great new recipe!

I would dive into that right now if I could! What a gem thanks for sharing your tasty cookbook find with us SizzlininIN (I can't get enough dishes with sesame oil in them, DH and I both really like its flavour).

I just had it for dinner!

Fabulous! I had a huge bowl of greens and bok choy, with the sauced pork and wontons on top.

There is no heat in the recipe as posted, so if you want some, you'd have to add some chili flakes or a little sriachi (sp?) or something, which I will do next time.

I almost filled up on the fried wontons as I was making them, they are SO good!

I used both black and white sesame seeds since I had them, and the sauce is terrific. I'd never cooked anything in sesame oil before - it WORKS as a cooking oil.

This is a keeper - thanks for posting it!
