BBQ Venison Wontons


I was laying in bed early this morning watching The Neeleys on Food Network, avoiding the fact that I needed to spend the day studying for finals, when I saw this recipe:
BBQ Wontons

I was drooling. All I have been able to think about today, besides Ecology and Analytical Chemistry, is these little wontons. I had to make them tonight! I changed quite a bit of the recipe to fit what I had in my fridge and to make it my own.

Even though they are an appetizer, Dusty and I ate them for dinner. I wish I had made more!
If you make this for a party or get together....double the recipe!

Here is what you are going to need for 25-30 Wontons:
-25 to 30 Wonton Wrappers
-1/2 lb Ground Venison, Pork or Beef
-1/4 cup chopped Green Onion
-2 cloves minced Garlic
-2 tbsp of BBQ Sauce + approximately 1/8 cup
-1 tsp dried minced Onion
-1/4 tsp Paprika
-1/4 tsp Sugar
-1 tsp Dijon Mustard
-Dash of Worcestershire Sauce
-Dash of Hot Sauce
-Salt/Pepper to taste
-Canola Oil
-2/3 cup Chicken Broth-divided

In a mixing bowl, add some chopped green onion to the ground venison meat.

Mince up the two cloves of garlic...

And add them to the bowl.

Add 2 tbsp of BBQ Sauce.

Add 1 tsp minced dried Onion.

1/4 tsp Paprika.

1/4 tsp Sugar.

1 tsp Dijon Mustard.

Dash of Worcestershire Sauce.

Dash of Hot Sauce.

And some salt and pepper to taste.
With a wooden spoon, mix the ingredients until combined.

Lay your wonton wrappers out on the counter, 6 at a time.
With your finger, dip it into a bowl of warm water and outline the outer edges of the wrapper with water.

Like this!

Scoop 1 tsp of venison meat mixture and put it in the center of the wonton wrapper.

Add a kiss of BBQ sauce!
Just because I felt like it, and it makes it super yummy!

Take two opposite sides of the wonton wrapper and bring them together and pinch.

Bring the other two sides of the wonton wrapper to the center and pinch.

And twist the top!
Isn't it adorable!?!

Once you have finished assembling the wontons, pour in enough Canola Oil to cover the bottom of the pan. Heat the oil over medium heat. Add the first batch of the wontons to the pan and cook the bottoms for 2 minutes.

After 2 minutes, carefully add 1/3 cup Chicken Broth.
Be careful! It will splatter because you are adding broth to oil!

Cover with a lid and let the wontons steam for 3 minutes.

Carefully remove the wontons from the pan after steaming for 3 minutes.

Look how cute it is!!!

Repeat these steps for your second batch of wontons.
Serve with some BBQ sauce for dipping.
Although, they are so flavorful, you probably won't need it!


  1. These look sooooo good. In fact, everything I've seen on your blog looks yummy! And I love the Christmas background! :-)

  2. These look DELICIOUS! I'm always on the hunt for new and original appetizers--especially around the holidays. Thanks for the tutorial on wrapping the wontons; it helps a lot. :)
