Learn how to make beautiful homemade pork wontons to include in soups or as a delicious appetizer.Homemade Pork Wontons

The versatility of Chinese wontons is almost too forgiving for the homecook with a hectic schedule or someone with a very small kitchen (like in my case).

The beauty of wontons is you can have them either in a fragrant soup or simply pan-fried like traditional pot-stickers

Here is my favourite, simple and totally easy recipe for delicious wontons

Homemade Pork Wontons

Servings 70 wontons

Ingredients
  

  • Minced pork 100g
  • Ginger 1 small knob, peeled and grated
  • Spring onion scallion, ¼ stalk, finely chopped
  • All-purpose soy sauce ½ tsp
  • Sesame oil 1/3 tsp
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Bok choy ½ bunch, finely chopped
  • Wonton wrappers 35-40 sheets
  • To serve — noodles – Hong Kong Style Egg noodles are best
  • Soy sauce – extra to serve

Instructions
 

  • Combine minced pork, ginger, spring onion, soy sauce and sesame oil in a bowl and mix well. Add about 1 tablespoon of cold water to loosen the mix. Season with salt and pepper and leave to marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
  • Just before wrapping wontons, add in the bok choy (do this now, so that the ‘water’ from the vegetable is minimised)
  • To make the wontons, place 1/2 tsp minced pork filling into the centre of a wrapper. Wet the edges of the wrapper with some water, then fold wrapper in half to make a triangle. Taking the two small tips of the triangle, bring them together to form a sort of crown. Repeat until all the ingredients are used up.
  • To cook, boil a large pot of water and add wontons. Stir gently with the back of a wooden spoon. When water returns to the boil, add 250 ml (8 fl oz / 1 cup) cold water and leave to simmer until wontons float to the top of the pot boil. Drain and leave on the side.
  • In a medium sized pot, boil water and add in the noodles, cooking according to the instructions. Drain well before tossing in 2 tablespoons of soy sauce and a dash of sesame oil. Mix to coat the noodles.
  • To serve, place the noodles in a bowl and top with the boiled wontons. Serve with extra soy sauce or chilli sauce.
