Ingredients

  • 1 Cup pineapple juice
  • ¾ Cup soy sauce
  • ½ Teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 2 Cups chopped skirt steak, cut into about 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 package wonton wrappers
  • 4 Ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 Cup chopped green onion
  • ½ Cup chopped roasted green chile
  • 1 Cup crushed pine nuts
  • Oil for frying

Directions

Combine the pineapple juice, soy sauce, and pepper in a small saucepan, bring to a boil and add in the chopped skirt steak. Simmer for about 4 minutes, or until the steak is fully cooked. Remove from the heat and drain.

To assemble, place one wonton wrapper on a secure work surface. Spread about 1 teaspoon of cream cheese in the center. Top with a couple pieces of the prepared beef, a couple pieces of chopped green onion, about ½ teaspoon of chopped green chile, and about ¼ to ½ teaspoon of the crushed pine nuts. Moisten the tips of your fingers with water and rub around the edge of the wonton wrapper. Bring the edges together and pinch, sealing firmly, and creating a small package. Repeat with the remaining wonton wraps. When all the wraps are filled, bring 4-inches of oil to a high heat in a 4-quart or larger saucepan. Gently drop in the beef bites and fry until crisp and golden, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the oil, drain on paper towels and arrange on a platter.

Beef Shopping Tip

Most cattle are fed a diet of grass until they are sent to a feedlot – where they are finished on corn. When possible, choose beef from cattle that are “100% grass fed” - it will be more expensive, but better for your health.

Beef Cooking Tip

The method used to cook beef is dependent on the cut. Cuts that are more tender, like filet mignon, should be cooked for a relatively short amount of time over high heat by grilling or sautéing. While less tender cuts, like brisket and short ribs, should be cooked for a longer time with lower heat by braising or stewing.
