To be honest, I don't think I've ever ordered pork wontons in a Chinese restaurant before. When I order Chinese I usually do shrimp with Chinese vegetables and don't stray too far from that.
However, I do love shrimp wonton soup and fried wontons. Luckily, I don't have to worry about it because I can now make my very own! It's pretty easy too. I much rather makes these than ravioli any day. I wonder if my spinach artichoke dip would be good in wontons? I may just have to find out.
These wontons aren't boiled, they are steamed. To steam my Chinese Pork Wontons I used a Cuisinework Silicone Steamer. Simply fill a pot or pan with about an inch of water and set to boil.
This steamer is heat resistant up to 500F and is made of nice, thick food grade silicone. Its base with little feet assures your food isn't sitting in water getting soggy too!
Once the water is boiling, place as many wontons as you can without having them touch each other and cover the steamer with a lid. Steam for 10-12 minutes.
Instead of making a sauce I used a variety of San-J products as dipping sauce. It turned out fantastic! For more than 200 years, San-J has been doing their thing and making an amazing variety of Tamari soy sauces, Asian cooking sauces, salad dressings, soups, and rice crackers. .
San-J Organic Tamari Gluten Free Soy Sauce is made with 100% soy and no wheat. This higher concentration of soy protein gives San-J Tamari a richer, milder, more complex taste that we all love. Our favorite of the above was the Mongolian sauce (second best next to the soy sauce)!
Their products can be fermented for up to six months with Japanese brewing methods. That's how they concoct these amazing flavors! San-J Sauces are made without artificial preservatives, flavors, or colors and are certified organic, gluten-free, vegan, Kosher and Non-GMO Project verified. It oozes quality and goodness in every bite!
