My Wor Won Ton Soup Recipe

IMG_7866Do you love lots of steps? I hope so, because this recipe is all about prepping your ingredients. The whole soup process is very fast, so you want to get your ingredients ready. Also you can modify the ingredients to use pork, chicken, beef, seafood and prawns. Your veggies can also be modified to include whatever you like.  This is what I used for 4 portions of soup.

  • Won Tons! See this recipe https://thisgirlreallycooks.com/2013/08/21/ginger-shrimp-won-tons/
  • 12 or more medium cooked shrimp
  • 1 chicken breast cooked and cut into pieces
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp Chinese 5 Spice
  • 4 cups chicken, beef or veggie broth
  • Thinly sliced beef
  • 2 cups of water
  • 1/2 onion sliced into strips
  • 2 cups of chopped bok choy
  • 1 cup of bean sprouts
  • 1 cup of snow peas
  1. First step is to cook the chicken. I start with the chicken using a large sauce pot that I love to cook soups in. I usually cook the chicken breast whole and then cut down so the pieces stay moist.  Remove the chicken and place on a plate. You can also use pork the same way.
  2. With the pot and oil still going I add in the onions and try to soak up the chicken flavor. Then I add the chicken broth, the water, soy sauce, Chinese 5 spice. Bring to boil.
  3. Add in the bok choy and snow peas, then put the shrimp into the boiling pot and cook throughly.
  4. Then  slowly lower the won tons into the boiling pot. Once that has happened, you have approximately 3-5 minutes until they are done. GO time.
  5. This is where you throw in your bean sprouts, cooked chicken and finally the thin sliced beef. The beef will cook in the soup broth and the longer left in, the more well done and rubbery it gets. I put the beef in right at the end and let the flavors mix.
