Pork Dumpling Noodle Soup


Pork Dumpling Noodle Soup

It was raining hard the previous night so I craved for a bowl of hot soup. This dish was easier than I thought — just a kitchen experiment that turned out well.

  1. Prepare the filling first. In a bowl, mix together 1/4 kilo of ground pork, 3 tbsp. of soy sauce, 2 tbsp. of green onions and a little bit of grated ginger. Cover and chill for ten minutes.
  2. Get your dumpling wrappers ready. Grab one wrapper, then place about a tablespoon of the chilled filling at the center. Wet the edges of the wrapper with water then fold in half. Ta-da! One dumpling down, at least a dozen more to go. Keep going till you use up all the filling. With 1/4 kilo of ground pork, I was able to make about 20 dumplings.
  3. Brown some garlic in a pot. Then pour about 6-7 cups of water in that same pot and bring to a boil. At this point, I also put in 2 Knorr Pork Cubes to make the soup more flavorful. Carefully drop the dumplings into the boiling water. Slide in the misua noodles too.
  4. Cook over over medium-high heat for about 15-20 minutes. Stir once in awhile to make sure your dumplings don’t stick to the bottom of the pot. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Serve hot. Sprinkle chopped green onions over your steaming bowl of soup. This makes 4-5 servings.

It was pretty good. Next time though I’ll put more broth so I could sip on the soup without noodles getting in the way. :) It would also be great to garnish this with browned garlic.

    Haha, Toni, you’re getting there. Pang September mo ba ‘to or meron ka pang iba?

    ting: Hehehe I emailed you something!

    jojo: Yeah! It’s like almondigas, except that I used dumpling wrapper. Ang almondigas walang dumpling wrapper. Hehehe yun lang pala ang difference ‘no!

    CG: Thanks for the compliment! And yup, I’ll keep the experiments coming hehehe and you know I’ll always make sure to post it!

    dexie: Chicken Noodle Soup! I haven’t tried making that yet. The most I’ve tried was the one that came right out of the pack hehehe

    sha: Sana makatulong ako sa sister mo! That’s the only misua recipe I know. Oh sometimes my mother-in-law puts sardines in her misua soup — as in yun sardines from the can ha with tomato sauce. I haven’t tasted it yet though. I’m kinda curious what it tastes like. Sabi ng husband ko masarap naman daw. I hope you’re happy and comfortable in France! I miss your entries. :)

    paz: Naku, madali lang siya. May taranta nang kasama yun paggawa ko, di ko nalang sinama sa post hehehe. Minsan kasi nung pinapakulo ko na yun dumplings, nahuhubaran yun pork! Ngeeeek. So di maiwasan na parang may mga meatballs na nagfo-float and may dumpling wrapprers na walang laman hehehe. Pero ok lang, it’s all part of the eating experience. :) I do hope you try it. Good luck, brave soldier!

    pa: love dumplings too! I especially like steamed ones, Japanese-style… gyoza! :) For Chinese naman, I like hakaw. 😀 That’s on my “To Order” list naman!

    sidney: Oh it’s very easy! Just stuff the dumpling wrappers with ground pork, throw into a boiling pot of water filled with noodles and wait for 20 minutes. Ta-da! Since you love dumplings, maybe you should give this a try. :)

    junnie: Hahaha cute mo naman. Nope, I didn’t forget the garlic but I wish I had used more of it! Thanks for the tip on Chinese celery. Will try that next time. And yes, that dish is great on a rainy day. It really does warm your insides!

    kala: Hehehe yeah it’s sorta an experiment ala invention. Actually I was supposed to make Steamed Dumplings lang talaga but since it rained, I craved for soup nalang. Hehe. Ayan, nilagyan ko nalang din ng misua para may konting texture naman. Try mo rin! Madali lang siya, promise.

    Hi Toni. I think this dish is called “almondigas.” You should have entered this in Lasang Pinoy #2.Keep on cooking!
