How to make it
- Drain pineapple, reserving juice. Set pineapple aside.
- In a saucepan, combine brown sugar and cornstarch; gradually stir in pineapple juice, vinegar and soy sauce until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Reduce heat; stir in green pepper and pineapple. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes; set aside and keep warm.
- In a bowl, combine pork, cabbage, sprouts, onion, eggs, salt and pepper. Place about 1 tablespoonful in the center of each wrapper. Moisten edges with water; fold opposite corners together over filling and press to seal.
- In an electric skillet, heat 1 inch of oil to 375 degrees F. Fry wontons for 2 1/2 minutes or until golden brown, turning once. Drain on paper towels. Serve with sauce.
- *Note: Fill wonton wrappers a few at a time, keeping others covered until ready to use.
