Easy Vietnamese Won Ton Soup

Easy Vietnamese Won Ton Soup
One of my favorite soups that my mom would make.  My sister, Lynn, and I have adapted her recipe to make it easy.  My family could eat several bowls in one sitting.


1 lb unseasoned ground pork
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon pepper
1 bunch of green onion chopped
2-3 packages of won ton wraps
2 32 oz boxes of chicken broth
1/2-1 teaspoon of fish sauce per bowl of soup

Fill half of a medium sauce pan with water.  Cook at medium-high heat.  In the mean time mix pork with salt, sugar, pepper, and half of green onions.

Take about a teaspoon of pork filling and place into center of won ton wrap. 

Use water as a sealer and fold up to make a ghost shaped won ton.  Set aside.  

In another medium to large sauce pan heat chicken broth on medium-high heat. 

Place won tons in pan with heated water.  Water should be an a low boil.  Cook won tons (about 2 minutes) until won tons float to top then wait 30 seconds.  Drain out water.

Place cooked won tons into bowls serve hot broth over the top, stir in fish sauce, and garnish with green onions.
