These are a great appetizer for any party but I love them when I have just a cocktail party. They are filling and your guests won't go away hungry. This recipe makes about 24 but some of the won tons may collapse in cooking so you might want to plan for a little extra.
You can bake off the won tons and keep them in an airtight container for up to a week. Not into beef?? these work with chicken and even shrimp.
24+ square won ton wrappers
1/2 lb beef tenderloin
1/2 cup diced red peppers
1/4 cup shallots minced
1 tbl minced garlic
2 tbl sugar
3 tbl fresh lime juice
2 tbl fish sauce
1 tsp chile paste
1 tsp soy sauce
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Using a cupcake pan, press the won ton wrappers down into the individual tins and lay the corners back to create a cup. Bake until lightly brown about 8-10 minutes and let cool.
Season the beef with lots of salt and pepper. Heat an oven proof saute pan on high until it is really hot. Sear the beef on all sides about 3-4 minutes then put the pan in the oven and cook the beef until medium rare (internal temperature of about 130 degrees) about 8 minutes depending on meat thickness. Let it rest about 10 minutes and thinly slice it to strips.
Combine beef, red pepper, shallots and garlic in a bowl and add lime juice, fish sauce, soy sauce, sugar and chile paste. Toss all together and fill cooled won ton cups.
