Ingredients

Pork
1 pound of pork country style ribs (minimal bones, preferably more meat than bones, the particular package purchased had one rib bone)
1/2 cup of water
Sprinkle of kosher salt
45 small wonton wrappers about (3 inch x 3 inch)
1 1/4 cup of Wasabi Mayonnaise purchased or see my recipe
1/2 cup of finely chopped cucumbers,
Garnishes (optional)
1/4 cup of wasabi mayonnaise mixed with a splash of water added to a squirt bottle to garnish top
2 green onions finely sliced
15 cilantro leaves

Technique

In slow cooker place pork, water, and kosher salt. Cook until falling off the bone and easily shredded. Cooking times will vary depending on the slow cooker being used. The Cuisinart slow cooker used in this recipe took 3 hours. Prepare tortillas by cutting 3 circles out of each tortilla. Do this by placing a round glass on the tortilla and cut around it with a knife. Spray both sides of tortilla with non-stick cooking spray and place on a large cookie sheet coated with non-stick cooking spray. Bake tortillas in a preheated oven at 375 degrees for 5 minutes or until golden brown.  Check often because they can easily burn. Remove and set aside. Once pork is cooked, remove pork meat and transfer to a medium sized mixing bowl. Be sure to remove any fat and bones. Add 1 1/4 cup of wasabi mayonnaise to the pork and mix well. Proceed to stack wonton by placing two tablespoons of the pork mixture on the bottom wonton and repeat. Top with finely diced fresh cucumber and drizzle with the wasabi mayonnaise in the squirt bottle. Top with a portion of sliced green onions and a cilantro leaf.

Suggested Beverage
