 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      2/3  pound         Ground Pork
    1      cup           Chinese cabbage -- Minced
    2      each          Green Onions -- Minced
    1      each          Egg
    1      tablespoon    Light Soy Sauce
      1/2  teaspoon      Salt
      1/2  teaspoon      Orange Peel -- Grated
      1/2  teaspoon      Hot Chili Oil
                         Cornstarch
   40      each          Won-ton wrappers -- Cut into circles
      1/2  cup           Peanut Oil
    1      cup           Water
 
 Combine port, cabbage, onion, egg, soy sauce, salt, orange peel and hot chili oil
in large bowl and mix well. To assemble:  Dust waxed or parchment paper with
cornstarch.
   Set 1 rounded teaspoon filling in center of won tom skin, pressinglightly so
 filling forms narrow band across middle. Moisten rim of skin.	Bring opposite
 sides together to form semicircle.  Pinch together around outer edge.	Transfer
 to cornstarch dusted paper.  Cover with dry kitchen towel. Repeat with remaining
 won ton and filling.  Place two heavy 12 skillets over low heat.  Add 1/4 cup
 oil to each. Arrange dumplings in skillets in rows, fitting closely together. 
 Increase heat to medium-high and cook uncovered until bottoms are deeply golden,
 about 2 minutes, checking occasionally.  Add 1/2 cup water to each pan and cover
 immediately.  Let steam until skins are translucent, about 3
 minutes.  Remove cover and continue cooking over medium to medium-high heat until
bottoms are very crisp and well browned.  Drain off excess oil if necessary. 
Loosen dumplings with spatula and transfer to serving dish.  Serve immediately.
