Unwrapped Wonton Soup is not a wonton soup at all but a favorite soup with the flavors of a delicous wonton soup!

Tender pork meatballs, veggies (and shrimp) are simmered in a sesame ginger broth for a delicious meal.

Quick & Easy

Tiny meatballs made from ground pork (or chicken or shrimp) are simmered in a flavorful ginger-sesame broth.

Making ginger and onion pork meatballs is quick and flavor packed! The meatballs can be made ahead of time and frozen and then tossed right into the broth to thaw and cook!

BROTH Flavored with sesame oil, ginger, and garlic this chicken broth base is packed with delicious Asian flavors!

MEATBALLS Thse meatballs are made with ground pork. The meatballs add both texture and the pork adds lots of flavor.

VEGGIES For convenience we love to add in frozen Asian mixed vegetables to this recipe. If adding fresh veggies, try snow peas, chopped broccoli, water chestnuts, baby corn, and Chinese cabbage to name a few.

NOODLES Toss in some premade egg noodles, they only require about 3-4 minutes to fully cook! If you’re going to be saving leftovers, cook the noodles on the side and add them to each bowl.

How To Make This Soup

  1. Make meatballs and add to simmering broth.
  2. Add remaining ingredients, except egg noodles and green onions, and cook over medium heat.
  3. Add the egg noodles and cook until tender (per recipe below).

Garnish with sliced green onions and serve immediately.

How To Store Leftovers

To reheat,  put in a pot on the stove and bring it up to medium heat. Add a few splashes of soy sauce and some extra minced garlic and ginger and serve!

Store cooked noodles in a separate bowl if you’re saving leftovers. If left in the broth too long, they’ll soak up the liquid and get mushy.

  1. Great recipe. Make it even more unwrapped wonton by taking wonton wrappers cut in half or strips briefly cook in some broth then add to the bowl as they cook quickly. Yummy, thanks.5 stars

  2. Hi, quick question. The ginger in the meatballs is in what form? Is it powdered, minced, grated? Other than that, this is a great recipe. I’m adding ingredients to my shopping list now. Thank you for sharing this deliciousness with me.5 stars

  3. This is in our “repeat” pile of recipes. It is simple and delicious and we have some wonderful leftovers for the two of us. I cooked a package of ramen noodles (discard the flavouring package) and just added some to the bottom of the bowl in place of egg noodles. It was a nice twist and just seems like a hardier noodle. Don’t just read this recipe folks…..make it! I also make wonton chips (made with basil and garlic) that are a great crunch side5 stars

  4. Mmmmm…. This was tasty! I’m glad that I went ahead and doubled the meatball part of the recipe. The remaining meatballs are in the freezer awaiting a quick remake of this soup in a week or two! Next time I plan on adding even more veggies, but as it is it was a good ratio (I just like lots of veggies in my soups!).5 stars

  5. My wife and I made this soup today. We were afraid it would not taste good because the sesame oil was so strong smelling and tasting. We quadrupled the recipe. It is a very good soup, but I think we will use less sesame oil next time and if we think we need more then we can add it. Even my 89 year old mother loved!5 stars
