THAN AT THE CHINESE RESTAURANT. THANX
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.
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
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.
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
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.
