 Ingredients List

  • 1/2 lb Ground pork
  • 36 Won-ton wrappers
  • 5 c Chicken broth
  • 2 c Spinach leaves, torn
  • -coarsely
  • Salt or light soy sauce to
  • -taste


1 1/2 tb Light soy sauce
1/8 ts Sugar
1 tb Dry sherry
Sprinkling black pepper
1 ts Ginger, peeled, minced
1 ts Scallions, finely chopped
1 tb Cornstarch dissoved in 4 TBS
2 ts Sesame oil

Preparing the wontons: March-chop the ground meat a few times to loosen its
formation. Put it in a bowl and add the seasonings; mix until smooth.
Divide roughly into 36 tiny portions and wrap them in the wonton wrappers.
(Wet edges of wrappers all around, place a small teaspoon of mixture in
center. Bring all four sides together into a point to make a good seal.)

Bring 5 to 6 cups water to a boil in a large pot; turn heat to medium high,
drop in the wontons, and stir gently. When the water boils again, add 1 1/2
cups cold water; when it comes to a boil again, add another 1 1/2 cups cold
water. When it comes to a boil this time, let it boil for about 2 minutes.
The wontons are cooked when they float to the top. Repeatedly adding cold
water serves two purposes; it gives the wontons enough time to cook as well
as rinsing them, since filled wontons should not be rinsed after cooking as
noodles are.

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

Completing the soup: When ready to complete the soup, bring the stock to a
simmer over medium heat and drop the wontons into it. Add the torn spinach,
and when the stock comes to a boil, turn heat to medium low and simmer for
about 2 minutes. Season to taste with salt or light soy sauce. Serve from a
tureen or in individual bowls. Let each individual put a few more drops of
sesame oil in their serving.

NOTES : I make these with ground turkey and they are good.
