  1. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add ground beef; cook 8 to 10 minutes, breaking into 1/2-inch crumbles and stirring occasionally. Remove drippings.
  2. Meanwhile, combine water, peanut butter, soy sauce, lime juice, garlic powder, ground ginger and red pepper.
  3. Stir peanut butter mixture into beef. Continue to cook over medium heat 2 to 3 minutes or until heated through, stirring occasionally.
  4. Evenly divide beef mixture over six wonton triangles, if desired. Garnish with toppings, as desired.


  • Cook's Tip: To make baked wonton wrappers, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cut 12 wonton wrappers diagonally in half. Place in single layer on baking sheet; bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown and crisp. Remove pan to cooling rack; cool completely. Store in air tight container.
  • Cook's Tip: Hot cooked whole wheat spaghetti can be substituted for baked wonton wrappers.
  • Cook's Tip: Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed ground beef. Ground beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160 degrees F. Color is not a reliable indicator of ground beef doneness.

Have to agree with Cheryl; was ok. Did it pretty well by the book though I opted out of hot peppers. Had it with egg noodles and was alright.

It was ok.

I eye-balled the sauce recipe, adding much more peanut butter and using the crunchy variety. After cooking, I also added vinegar to taste. It was scrumptious.

We enjoyed this. Love the peanut flavor with the beef. Usually we only have peanut flavored sauce with chicken so this was a nice change.
