Ingredients

8 cups chicken stock

4 garlic cloves, peeled and lightly bruised

4cm piece ginger, sliced and lightly bruised

2 whole star anise

400g (14 oz) pork ribs, cut into individual ribs

1 tbsp light soy sauce

1 tsp sea salt

600g (1.3 lb) fresh Chinese egg noodles (or your noodle of choice)

200g (8 oz) Chinese BBQ Char Siu pork (either store-bought or try my homemade version here), thinly sliced

200g (8 oz) choy sum or other Asian greens, cut into bite-sized pieces

Finely sliced spring onion (scallions) to serve

 

Wontons

200g (8 oz) pork mince

100g (3.5 oz) peeled prawns, finely chopped

¼ cup finely sliced spring onion (scallions)

1 tsp sesame oil

½ tsp sea salt

¼ tsp ground white pepper

1 tbsp water

1 tsp corn flour (cornstarch)

20 wonton wrappers

Instructions

STEP 1
For the broth, place the chicken stock, garlic, ginger, star anise, pork ribs, soy sauce and salt into a large pot. Bring to the boil, then turn the heat down to low and simmer for 20-30 minutes.

 

STEP 2
In the meantime, for the wontons, combine the pork mince, prawns, spring onions, sesame oil, salt, pepper, water and corn flour in a bowl. Mix thoroughly. Place a heaped tablespoon of filling mix in the centre of a wonton wrapper. Moisten the edges of the wrapper and fold to seal. Place on a large tray. Repeat with the remaining wrappers and filling.

 

STEP 3
Skim any scum from the surface of the broth. Strain the broth and keep warm.

 

STEP 4
Heat a large pot of water until boiling. Add 1 portion of noodles and a handful of choy sum. Cook for about 2 minutes or until the noodles are just al dente. Drain with a slotted spoon and place directly into a serving bowl. Repeat for all serves of noodles and choy sum. Next cook the wontons in the same boiling water. Divide the wontons among the serving bowls.

 

STEP 5
Top the noodles with the Chinese BBQ pork. Ladle over the warm broth. Sprinkle over the spring onion and serve.
