Chef John's Pork Wonton Soup

Chef John's Pork Wonton Soup

"The term 'wonton' is mostly commonly translated as meaning 'irregularly-shaped pasta'. The second translation I found is from a popular Cantonese homonym that literally means 'swallowing clouds'. If given the choice between eating 'irregularly-shaped pasta', or 'swallowing clouds', I'm going with the clouds every time! You can add ginger, onion, soy, hot pepper, cilantro, lime, lemon grass, etc., to suit your taste and customize the broth."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Stir pork, green onion, garlic, ginger, soy sauce, fish sauce, dry sherry, sriracha sauce, and sesame oil together in a large bowl until well-combined. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate meat mixture until chilled, 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  2. Heat vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Saute mushrooms in hot oil until golden and fragrant, about 10 minutes. Pour chicken stock over mushrooms; bring broth to a simmer.
  3. Place wonton wrappers on a flat work surface and drop about 1/2 teaspoon pork mixture into the center of each wonton. Brush egg white onto the border of each wrapper. Take the bottom corner and fold it up to the top corner to form a triangle and press edges with fingers to seal. Hold opposite ends of the triangle, center-tip facing down. Gently push down on meat pocket to form a flat base and fold triangle points together to form a tortellini shape.
  4. Stir bok choy into mushroom broth and return broth to a simmer. Add wontons to broth; cook until wontons are wrapper firms and meat is cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes.

The filling was a little too salty. I would half the fish sauce. Other than that, very tasty wonton soup!

My fist batch of wontons was ok, some did fall apart while cooking. My second batch I refrigerated wontons overnight!!! OMG, love this soup. Didn't have the sherry, didn't matter.... Yummy

Made this for my husband when he was sick. He loved it. FYI you can sub in egg roll wrappers if you can't find wonton wrappers.

Added more veggies

my son didn't like, my hubby thought it was ok.

Pretty good recipe with some additions: used ground turkey instead of pork and green onions and the wontons were delicious! Didn't have fish sauce or sherry. Still yummy. Used chicken broth and...
