Slapping my pork for good nude wonton

Regular readers will know of my love of wonton soup, especially my Mum’s wonton soup. It’s simply the best and one of two of my favourite meals. In March, Yummy Lummy was featured in the Good Food and Wine Guide. I mentioned that Mum’s wonton soup was one of my favourite meals. In that article you’ll see a picture of Mum’s dish.

Since I’m taking a low carbohydrate approach to weight loss and health improvement, the wonton wrappers are not really suitable. That doesn’t mean the filling can’t be prepared and cooked like meatballs in a thin broth.

So tonight I have used Mum’s wonton recipe sans wrappers and enjoyed the final product. You can see another post about Mum’s wonton soup here.

  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

Ingredients

  • Pork mince, make sure it has a reasonable amount of fat otherwise it will taste unpleasant, about 500 g
  • Raw prawns between 250 and 500 g. Peel and remove intestine. Cut longitudinally and then roughly dice.
  • Soy, a good splash to taste
  • Sesame oil, be generous
  • Sugar 2 teaspoons (I used a tiny bit of palm sugar)
  • Salt 2 teaspoons
  • Pepper both white and black
  • Scotch whisky about third of a cup
  • Cornflour about 2 tablespoons (I used 1 dessert spoon)
  • Egg, one or two
  • Spring onions
  • Water chestnuts, chopped roughly

Method

  1. Slap the pork into a bowl a few times (my Mum reckons this makes a difference)
  2. Combine everything (including the whisky) and slap around again (again Mum reckons this is helpful)
  3. Shape into balls
  4. Prepare a stock, preferably with pork bones, e.g., ribs and green Asian vegetables, preferably nice melons
  5. Cook for about five minutes per batch
  6. Serve with some of the stock in a bowl
  7. Serve with Chilli sauce and soy
  8. Capture lots of images
  9. Eat with a big smile on your face
  10. Do the dishes
  11. Write a blog post

  2. Very cheeky Mr Lum! Great post! I’m considering posting my Mum’s recipe for wontons. I have a feeling that her recipe is similar to your Mum’s but doesn’t include scotch.

    • Please share it. The scotch is because back in the day Mum didn’t have access to Chinese alcohol. Now she just prefers it I think.

      • Ah, that makes sense. I’d like to try your Mum’s recipe to see what the difference in taste is. I’ll have a dig around for the recipe and post it in the next few weeks 🙂

  3. I’ve never had the naked version of wonton soup! When I was working for Federal Government FAHCSIA here in the city (Smith st) we were based almost directly across the road from Saigon Star – and they always made the MOST delicious Pork and Wonton Soup. drools

    I’m feeling quite regretful that they are not open @ 12:29am right now.. lol

    I’d love to try your mothers.. it looks delicious!

    • Mum’s is amazing. Each of her sons tries to emulate hers but to no avail. Mum would make so much that at 12.29 am there would be wonton in the refrigerator which oddly enough tastes good cold. Think Nigella 🙂

  4. Gary, Wonton soup is my favourite, but I haven’t been able to have it in forever due to similar dietary restrictions. Thank you so much for sharing the recipe!
