Pork Won-Ton Soup

Back to the pork recipes that I was posting before life interupted....

The pork won-ton soup was awesome and so easy to make. Our grocery store didn't have won-ton wrapers, so we subbed in egg noodles which worked fine and tasted great.

3 cups reduced sodium chicken broth
1 1-inch piece ginger, finely chopped
6 to 8 large spinach leaves, sliced into thin strips
1/4 cup green onions, sliced on the diagonal
2 shiitake mushrooms, stems removed, wiped clean and thinly sliced
1 tablespoon fish sauce
1 teaspoon wheat free soy sauce
Pinch of ground white pepper
3 fresh wonton wrappers, cut into strips
5 to 6 1/4-inch slices cooked pork tenderloin, sliced again crosswise into thin strips

1. In a medium saucepan bring the chicken broth to a simmer.

2. Add the ginger, spinach, green onions, mushrooms, fish sauce, soy sauce, and white pepper and return to a simmer.

3. Add the wonton strips and cook, stirring occasionally, until cooked through and tender, 2 to 3 minutes.

*Note: we pre-cooked the egg noodles and added them in.

4. Add the pork, cook for 20 seconds, and serve immediately.

Bon Appetit!
