-Fold together pork, shrimp, onion, egg white, minced water chestnuts, ginger, 1 Tbls. soy sauce, sesame oil, 1/2 tsp. salt, and pepper; add the corn starch to the mixture and stir to blend.
-Place a scant teaspoonful of the prepared filling in the center of each wonton skin; fold one corner of the wrapper over the filling toward the opposite corner. Roll the wonton up diagonally towards the corner you just folded in. Brush edges of wrapper with egg. Fold the two remaining corners into the middle. Place the finished dumplings on a tray that has been lightly dusted with corn starch; set aside.
-Heat 3 qt. of water to boiling in a large pot. Add the won-tons and cover. Once the water is boiling again, cook for about 4 minutes or until they rise to the surface. Remove with a long-handled strainer and drain. Discard the water. Set aside won-tons.
-Heat remaining ingredients to boiling in the large pot, add the cooked won-tons, and serve.

  • I tried your recipe a few weeks back and today decided that I wanted to use the same recipe since the family loved the first batch. I frantically searched the internet for your version (silly me, I didn't print your recipe in the first place) and through perseverance I found it! Woo-hoo! I have tasted various versions of wonton soups and THIS BY FAR IS THE BEST TASTING I've come across ... and I don't have to go to a Chinese restaurant to savor this exquisite meal-in-one dish! Again, thanks!

  • I think it is better if you put the sesame oil directly in the broth with the vegetables, cook them and then cook the wontons in the broth. MMMM.

  • I have made this recipe several times.. it is the best I've ever made! Don't be put off by the list of ingredients -- the filling ingredients just get thrown together in a bowl, and stuffing the wontons is very quick and easy. They are very delicious! I think I'll make it again this weekend!

  • I did this recipe yesterday and was very pleased with the results. All of my guests were very happy with it also. Good job. Thanks.

  • Try fresh shrimp, shelled, deveined then finely diced and mixed in the pork. it tastes a lot better! my sister suggested adding finely julienne cabbage (regular or Napa cabbage) and also sliced Napa cabbage as a garnish (if you can't find bok choy).

  • I made your won ton soup I have never had it at the restaurant before so this was my first attempt. It was excellent I am really hooked on it When they had finished boiling, I couldn't wait for the soup part so I used them with a dipping sauce containing soya sauce and wasabi mixed together. They were awesome. Thank you so much.

  • All I can say is WOW. Great recipe ... thanx

  • Ground turkey works wonders instead of ground pork. Not that this needs wonders...

  • I made this today and it was every bit as good as the won ton soup at our favourite Chinese restaurant. I did not add the snap pea pods but other than that I pretty much followed the recipe exactly. I added the sesame oil to both the meat mixture and the broth. I made a boo-boo with the first 4 wrappers, I didn't 'feel' them as I was removing them from the package and subsequently I had 3 together; fortunately I discovered this error before doing any more than 3. Both my husband and I think this was the best won ton soup we've ever tasted. When I folded the wrappers I used the baseball analogy, I folded home plate up to 2nd base then sealed all the edges, then I pushed the meat up more toward the center and then folded 1st & 3rd base toward the flatter meaty bottom edge and then folded those together like a tortellini. This was super yum, thanks for the recipe.

  • This is by far the BEST Won Ton soup recipe. I've tried them all. All of my neighbors love it too. When someone comes down with a cold, they all ask me to make them this soup. It's authentic and scrumptious and is a great cure for all ailments. And it's also fun to make.
