This Wonton Soup stuffed with bits of pork, green onion, garlic, and ginger has been a family favorite for years and will hopefully be yours too. Serve it with egg rolls for a complete Chinese dinner without needing to order take out.
Just like you, I have a list of tried and true recipes that I’m constantly making, some I’ve already posted, such as my Haluski and Italian wedding soup, while some I still have yet to share. Since I’ve been blogging for almost 8(!) years now, there are recipes I shared at the very beginning that deserve a second chance in the spotlight (because let’s face it – photos draw you into making the recipe and mine back then…did not). I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve made my trusted Pork Wonton Soup, which is mainly when I see my family (whether they’re visiting me or I’m visiting them). I remember when I was a kid, Mom and I would order wonton soup from the little fast food Chinese place in the mall food court. Then they stopped serving it altogether, which left us very disappointed. Eventually as I got older, I learned how to make it for dinner so we could enjoy it again (someday I’ll learn how to make homemade egg rolls, but for now we pair our soup with frozen egg rolls). This soup does take some prep time as the pork filling needs to marinate about 30 minutes and then some time to assemble the wontons, but they cook fast (faster than it takes to prep!). I promise the outcome is so worth it. I also included step by step photos of how to stuff a wonton so you can see exactly how I do it.
