Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk rice wine and cornstarch together in large bowl. Add ground pork, 2 tablespoons green onion, soy sauce, ginger, sesame oil, and sugar; stir until well combined and paste-like, about 10 minutes. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.

  • Place about 1 tablespoon pork mixture in the middle of a wonton wrapper. Brush edges with beaten egg and pinch edges to seal, creating a small pouch. Repeat with remaining wonton wrappers and pork mixture. Refrigerate until ready to use.

  • Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add bok choy, snap peas, carrot, and 2 tablespoons green onion, cover, and steam until tender, 2 to 6 minutes. Remove and distribute evenly among 4 soup bowls.

  • Place wontons in steamer basket and steam until pork is no longer pink inside, about 10 minutes. Remove and place in soup bowls alongside vegetables.

  • Heat chicken broth and water in a saucepan until hot, 5 to 7 minutes. Pour hot broth mixture evenly into soup bowls atop vegetables and wontons. Sprinkle 1/4 cup chopped green onion evenly over each bowl.

I would not steam the veggies and wontons separately. Poach them in the broth and the broth will have a more complex flavor. Overall - this is a nice fresh meal. Read More

No subsitutions. This is an amazing recipe. I was intimidated at first as someone who hasn't cooked Asian food very often but this turned out fantastic! The dumplings had a savory complex flavor and I don't think I'll need to order this at a restaurant ever again! Read More

I have made wonton soup many times but this will be my go to recipe from now on! Fantastic with all the veggies in it! I swapped ground chicken for pork (my daughter doesn't eat pork) and added a dash of sesame oil to the broth. The key IMHO is leaving the meat to sit in the fridge and let the flavours marry. The filling was super tasty. I also cooked the veggies in the broth and only until they were warmed through. We like them crunchy! We all loved this! Thanks! Read More
