Pork Wonton Soup

Wonton wraps stuffed with juicy flavor filled pork swimming in a bowl of appetite quenching soup is perfect for any occasion. Wonton has a reputation for being time consuming but that is not exactly true. If you follow the technique I use, you will be able to assembly predictably sized won tons in the most efficient way possible. I have been making wontons since I was a little girl and have passed this recipe and technique to my children. Now I am sharing with you. I developed this recipe over the years and decided to see if anyone else out there loves a good won ton as much as we do.

Watch the video to better understand how to assemble the wontons and follow the instructions below to have this time tested classic in your home today. My husband loves the soup and drinks every last drop. I hope you and your family will enjoy something that is truly a recipe I have been making for years.

Top with green onions.

Ingredients

Place meat, seasoning and green onion in the bowl.

Add grated garlic and ginger.

Mix well

Place 1 wrapper in your hand. Use the other hand scoop out 1 tsp of meat mixture and place it in the center of the wrapper.

Wet around the edges of the wrapper (use your finger) gently fold it in half making a triangle (press against the meat to remove any air inside the wonton).

Fold the two corners together and press the wrapper firmly until the wonton corners are completely sealed.

The recipe should yield ~35-40 wontons.

Pour the chicken broth in a medium sized pot (make sure it has a lid that fits on the pot). Add sliced ginger, green onions, shaoxing wine, salt, pepper and sesame oil.

Cook on medium high for 10 minutes. Remove lid: discard the ginger and green onions.

Turn the heat up to high and bring the broth to a boil. Add 10-15 wontons to the pot. Cook for 4 minutes or until they float.

Remove the wontons with a slotted spoon and transfer to a serving bowl.

Place the chopped green onions on top of the cooked wontons.

Serve immediately.
