Pancit Molo (Filipino Wanton Soup) Recipe!!!

19-IMG_2480-copyPancit Molo is a Filipino soup dish that makes you wonder why it’s called pancit.   Pancit refers to noodle dishes, and this dish doesn’t have noodles at all.  It uses wonton, soimai or molo wrappers. Not to mention most of the pancit recipes are dry while this pancit molo is a soup.

Pancit Molo is a soup dish composed of a mixture of ground pork wrapped in wonton wrappers, shredded chicken meat, and shrimps. This dish is a  well known Filipino dish that resembles the Chinese dish called wanton soup but the finest ingredients and flavor makes this dish stand out.

Today I will give you my version of this dish, I’m sure you will love it.

 

 Soup Ingredients:

30 wontons

1  onion, peeled & sliced thinly

2 cloves garlic, peeled & minced

1 tbsp. cooking oil

10 cups homemade broth

1 tbsp. fish sauce

1 pc. green onions, ends trimmed and chopped

1 cloves fried garlic bits

½ tsp. salt to taste

¼ tsp. pepper to taste

For the Homemade Broth:

3 pounds bone-in chicken parts (wings, thighs)

12-13 cups boiling water

1 onion, peeled & chopped

4 cloves garlic, peeled & minced

1 tsp. pepper corns

1 tbsp. cooking oil

2 pcs. bay leaves

1 tbsp. salt to taste

For the Wontons:

2 pounds ground pork

1 pack (30 pcs.)  wonton wrappers

1 small carrot, peeled and shredded

1 tbsp. soy sauce

½ cup green onions, finely chopped

½ cup water chestnuts, finely chopped

3 cloves garlic, peeled and minced

2 tsp. salt to taste

1 tsp. pepper to taste

 

Directions:

For the Homemade Broth:

Heat oil in a deep pot over medium heat then add onions and garlic and cook until limp and aromatic.

Add chicken and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 4 to 7 minutes or until chicken changes color. Lower heat, cover, and cook for about 17 to 20 minutes or until chicken releases its juices.

Raise heat to high and add boiling water.

Add bay leaves and peppercorns, season with salt.

Lower heat and return to simmer for another 10 to 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.

With a slotted spoon, remove chicken pieces from broth.

Allow to cool to touch. Remove meat from bones and shred.

Set aside chicken meat and keep warm. Break bones to expose marrow and return to pot.

Continue to cook at barely a simmer, uncovered, for about 1-1/2 to 2 hours or until liquid is reduced and concentrated. Using a cheesecloth, strain stock to remove bones and aromatics.

For the Wontons:

In a bowl, combine ground pork, water chestnuts, green onions, soy sauce, carrots, garlic, salt and pepper. Gently stir until well-distributed.

Separate wrappers into individual sheets. Spoon a heaping tablespoonful of meat mixture on middle of wrapper and then gather sides to form a cup around mixture.

For the Final Pancit Molo:

Heat oil in a pot over medium heat.

Then Add onions and garlic and cook until aromatic.

Add broth and bring to a simmer.

Add fish sauce and cook for about 1 to 2 minutes then season with salt and pepper.

Add wontons and cook for about 8 to 10 minutes or until cooked through.

Add chicken and cook for about 2 to 3 minutes or until heated through.
