Cooking with Jon and Steph - Homemade Wonton Soup

That's right - Jon and I made Wonton Soup from scratch!

It's really easy and super yummy. The best part about making homemade soup is that you don't get all the sodium and salty flavor of store bought soup.

-Generous 1 cup roughly chopped pork
-1/2 cup minced shelled shrimp
-1 teaspoon light brown sugar
-1 tablespoon Chinese rice wine (we used rice wine vinegar)
-1 tablespoon light soy sauce
-1 teaspoon minced scallions
-1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger root (we used powdered)
-24 ready made won-ton wrappers
-3 cups stock (we used chicken)
-1 tablespoon light soy sauce
-finely chopped scallions, to garnish


1) In a bowl, thoroughly mix the chopped pork and shrimp with the sugar, rice wine, soy sauce, scallions and ginger. Set aside for 25-30 minutes for the flavors to blend.

2) Place about 1 teaspoon of the pork mixture in the center of each won-ton wrapper.

3) Wet the edges of each filled won ton wrapper with a little water and press them together with your fingers to seal. Fold each won ton bundle over. (Jon said they looked like little food presents)

4) To cook, bring the stock to a rolling boil in a wok. Add the won tons and boil for 4 to 5 minutes. Season with the soy sauce and add the scallions.

Serve and enjoy!!
