Another fabulous Roben Ryberg recipe. A 3 stage process that is totally worth the effort. Note that cooking time includes making stock in the crock pot.
Crock Pot Pork Stock
- 1 boneless pork sirloin roast (about 2 pounds)
- 1 medium onion, unpeeled
- 1 bay leaf
- 5 cups water
- 1⁄2 lb ground pork
- 1⁄4 lb shrimp, peeled and finely chopped
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 teaspoon gluten free soya sauce
- 2 green onions, finely chopped
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups pork stock
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 ounce rice noodles (rice sticks)
- 10 uncooked asian meatballs
- 1 green onion, thinly sliced
- Step 1: Crock Pot Pork Stock.
- •Wash the meat. Place in Crock Pot. Cut the onion in quarters and add to the pot. Add the bay leaf and water. Cover with a lid and cook on high for 5 hours, or low for 8-10 hours.
- •Remove the meat, onion, and bay leaf. Remove any excess fat from the meat. Save the meat for another meal.
- •Skin any fat from the top of the broth and discard. For the clearest broth, drain through cheesecloth.
- •Let cool.
- •Makes about 5 1/4 cups.
- •SIDE NOTE – This recipe can also be used to make chicken or beef stock. To make chicken stock use 1 small frying chicken (1 1/2 to 1 3/4 pounds). To make beef stock use 1 beef sirloin roast (about 2 pounds).
- Step 2: Asian Meatballs.
- •In a medium-sized bowl, combine all the ingredients. Shape into meatballs, using approximately 1 rounded teaspoon per meatball.
- •To eat these on their own place in a lightly greased pan over medium heat. Cook until no pink remains, 3-5 minutes.
- •For the wonton soup, leave them uncooked.
- •Makes 20-25 meatballs.
- Step 3: Wonton Soup.
- •Heat the broth and salt to a boil in the saucepan. Add the noodles and meatballs. Cook until the noodles are tender and the meatballs are cooked through, between 3 and 5 minutes. Garnish with green onion.
- •Serve Hot.
- •A NOTE FROM MY KITCHEN – I added the meatballs before the noodles cause I didn’t trust the 3-5 minute cooking time. Mine took closer to 10…maybe cause they were a bit bigger than directed. So, about halfway through I added the noodles. End result was perfect.
This isn't wonton soup. This is Asian meatball and noodle soup. It is okay but definitely not what I wanted for wonton soup.
