Homemade Chinese Take-Out

In these tough economic times, one of the first things to get axed from your budget may be eating out or ordering in. Instead of giving up your favorite Chinese take-out dishes, prepare them at home with these can't-miss recipes.

Wonton Soup

Makes 8 servings

1/2 pound boneless pork loin, coarsely chopped
2 ounces peeled shrimp, finely chopped
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon Chinese rice wine
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon finely chopped green onion
1 teaspoon chopped fresh ginger root
24 wonton wrappers
3 cups reduced-sodium chicken stock
1/8 cup finely chopped green onion

1. Mix together pork, shrimp, sugar, wine, soy sauce, 1 teaspoon green onion and ginger. Combine well and set aside for 30 minutes for flavors to blend.

2. Spoon about 1 teaspoon of the pork mixture into the center of each wonton wrapper. Moisten edges of wrappers with water. Fold two corners over to make a triangle and fold over the other corners to seal all edges. Moisten edges with water, if needed, to help seal.

3. Bring chicken stock to a boil. Place wontons in boiling stock and cook for 5 minutes. Garnish bowls with green onions.
