Fresh Homemade Wonton Soup…
Wonton Soup (not my recipe – from an old friend)
1 package of Wonton Wrappers
1 lb Lean Ground Pork
2 tsp brown sugar
2 tbsp rice wine or vinegar
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tsp green onions
2 tsp ginger root
1/2 tsp Chinese 5 Spice
1/2 tsp Sesame Oil
1. Mix all ingredients & let sit for 25 minutes or overnight
2. To make Wontons fill with 1/2-1 tsp of filling per Wonton, put in middle of wrapper & fold over like a triangle using water on your finger as a “glue”
3. Bring 2 cans of Chicken Broth to a boil, add peas, wontons, green onions, ginger & sesame oil, adjust the chicken broth to how many wontons you put in, cook 5-10 minutes until the wonton is wrinkly & slimy!
I used just over 1 lb of lean ground pork & I stopped filling wontons about 1/2 way thru (very tedious & 1 hr later)! I than freezed remaining mixture in a Ziploc baggie for next time. I than cooked how many Wontons I needed & left the other Wontons on the cookie sheet & stuck them in the freezer on parchment paper, once they are frozen stick them in a Ziploc baggie & freeze & than you can pull them out & cook from frozen.
They may look grosse! but, they are yummy & much better for you than buying them already made.
Once you have the Wontons made ahead of time you can pull them out of the freezer for lunch or dinner in a zip!
