Instant Pot Wonton Soup

Instant Pot Wonton soup is full of rich broth, tantalizing seasonings and meaty morsels that burst with heavenly sensations. The trick to a good wonton soup is being very careful folding the wonton itself. I grew up making these, this my preferred method. It works, is easy to do and produces a constant result. If you are making a lot, call in the troops and show them this video… my family loves to stand around our kitchen island talking and making these. When everyone pitches in to the meal, it just tastes that much better.

Ingredients

Place the chicken broth, sliced ginger, green onions, shaoxing wine, salt, pepper and sesame oil into the Instant pot. Then cover with the lid. Pressure cook on high for 10 minutes, followed by a 15 minutes natural release . Follow the manufacture instructions for releasing the pressure. Remove the lid. Discard the green onions & ginger.

Place all the meat wonton mixtures in a bowl and 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 (water) 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. Watch video for reference. Repeat until all the meat mixture has been used.

The recipe should yield ~35-40 wontons.

Press the sauté button on high and bring it to a boil. Add 15-18 wontons to the pot. 

Cook for 4-6 minutes or until they float. Remove the wontons with a slotted spoon and transfer to a serving bowl. Depending on the size of your pot, you may need to do this in batches. Season the broth with salt and pepper.

Garnish with chopped green onions. Serve & enjoy!

        Hot and Sour Shrimp Soup

        Rich and savory Hot and Sour Shrimp Soup is a melody of ingredients that can be served as a side or main entree. Perfect for lunch or dinner and on any occasion. This recipe and method of preparation will bring a coveted dish to your table. To describe the slight crunch of the mushrooms and bamboo that harmoniously add texture to the appetite quenching broth would not do justice to how satisfying this dish really is. Follow these instructions and stick to the recipe for tender large shrimp that will burst with sweetness as the egg particles create a creamy consistency that will solidify this soup as a balanced pleasing meal on your menu of home cooked dishes.

        When it comes to hot and sour soup, I prefer my soup to be “fully” loaded with meat (shrimp, chicken or pork), tofu, mushrooms, bamboo, dried wood ear mushrooms and eggs. You can add other vegetables to the soup but recognize cook times and flavors may vary. As with most dishes the garnish sets the visual tone and creates a fresh appeal. Simply top this dish with fresh chopped green onions and white pepper prior to serving. The crisp onions and spice of the pepper will stew to a perfume of delightful invitation as the symphony of herbal tones and chicken broth cascade from the serving dish.

        This recipe is one of my personal favorites! Hot and sour soup reminds me of going out for dinner with my family and celebrating special occasions during my youth. I have worked for several years to try and recreate my best experiences of this dish in my own home. I believe this recipe is of a quality worthy of sharing and highly recommend you give it a try. Congregate with your friends and family over a nice hot bowl of soup for your next foodlicious experience. Remember to return to a boil prior to adding additional ingredients and serve this soup fresh off the stove. Watch the video and check out the instructions prior to preparation and you will achieve a classic fully loaded home cooked Hot and Sour soup full of tender mushrooms and juicy shrimp.

        Bamboo, fresh shiitake mushrooms and dried wood ear mushrooms.
