Category: Chinese, Soups

 Ingredients List

  • 1/2 lb Ground pork
  • 36 Wonton wrappers
  • 5 c Chicken stock
  • 2 c Spinach leaves


1 1/2 tb Light soy sauce
1 pn Sugar
1 tb Dry sherry
Sprinkling black pepper
1 ts Ginger; minced
1 ts Scallions; finely chopped
1 tb Cornstarch dissolved in 4 T.
2 ts Sesame oil

March chop the ground meat a few times to loosen formation. (with the
ground meat on the chopping board, take a knife and chop-chop a bit.) Place
in bowl and add seasonings. Mix until smooth. Divide roughly into 36
portions and wrap in wonton wrappers.

Bring 5-6 cups of water to a boil in a large pot; turn heat to medium high,
drop in wontons, and stir gently. When water boils again, add 1 1/2 cups
cold water. When it boils again, add another 1 1/2 cups cold water. When
this comes to a boil the third tim, let it boil for about 2 minutes. The
wontons are cooked when they float to the top. Repeatedly adding the cold
water serves two purposes; it gives the wontons enough time to cook as well
as rinising them.

After boiling, the wontons may be covered and stored 2-3 days in the
refrigerator. Submerge in cold water to separate before adding to soup.

When ready to eat, bring stock to a simmer and drop the wontons into it.
Add the torn spinach and when the stock comes to a boil, lower and simmer
for about 2 minutes.

Filling may be varied by decreasing meat and adding a proportionate amount
of diced fresh shrimp. You can also use crabmeat. Any leafy green vegetable
can be used in place of the spinach as well as sliced presoaked Chinese
mushrooms and shredded meat such as chicken, pork or ham.
