I've been experimenting with different won ton soup recipes, and this is hands-down my family's favorite. I had my doubts about the beef broth, but silly me! it is simply perfect exactly as written. I have made it several times now and my only complaint is that the recipe says it serves 6, but 3 is more like it. Also, 1 package of won ton skins was nowhere near enough - which is good because I have plenty of dumplings left over to make another batch of this wonderful soup another day. Thanks SO much for posting this!
I've tried this twice, once by the book, and once using baby bok choy in place of the spinach (it was what I had at the time). The whole family loved it both times. I would recommend maybe using 2 packs of wonton skins - for me, one isn't quite enough and I end up making meat balls out of the remaining filling. We like this with a salad covered with Benihana Ginger Salad Dressing (#1985) - gives us something to do with the rest of the ginger root as well.
this was amazing!! i have made wan ton soup before and me and my family didnt like it at all. i had a school project where i had to make somthing with meat in it and record changes and this was perfect for that!! thanks for posting the recipe! :)
I just used the won ton recipe. Very good. Thank you for sharing.
Perfection! Better than any restaurant's won ton soup. I've made this twice in the last week, adding veggies the second time
This soup was oh-so good! Made it as is (though distraction caused me to forget about the spinach), and my kidlets couldn't get enough of it! The broth could also be a base for other simple soups, if you do not feel like making the won tons. Will be trying the broth with some shitakes and tofu for a simple soup. I look forward to making this won ton soup again!
I LOVED these! This will be my go-to won ton soup recipe now, it was so easy and so delicious. I made a few changes based on what I had on hand....I used ground turkey instead of pork/shrimp and used cabbage instead of spinach, and added waterchestnuts. They were just wonderful! The broth was equally as good too. Thanks for sharing!
