Sazzy's BBQ PORK Wonton Noodle Soup Hack

Cooking Time: 6 hours (for the stock)

Difficulty: Easy!

Serves: 2

Ingredients

For the Stock

• Chicken Carcass

• Stock Mix (this can vary, but i always keep the off-cuts of Veges & keep them in a bag in the freezer - so you can make yummy stock at anytime. Ends of carrots, celery, onion skins, cauli / broc stalks etc…
• 2 Bay Leaves
• 10 x peppercorns
• 1 large slither lemon rind
• Thumb-sized knob ginger
• 5 x garlic cloves
• 3 x star anise
• 1 x chilli
• Salt
• 1 x TBSPN light soy sauce
• 1 x TBSPN rice wine vinegar
• 3 x TSPNS chicken bouillon 
• Half a broccoli head (chop into florets)
• 400g BBQ PORK (get from any good Asian supermarket or takeout joint)
• 8 x wontons (we use pork & prawn - from the frozen section at Lims or Fruitworld)
• 2 x portions of egg noodles (or Wonton Noodles if you can find them - both work)
• Chilli Oil (we use the Lee Kum Kee brand)

Method

• Fill a large pot with 6 x cups of water. This is going to reduce by half & you want 3 cups of reduced stock remaining. 
• Add the chicken carcass, stock mix, bay leaves, peppercorns, lemon rind, ginger, garlic, star anise, chilli & about 4 generous pinches of salt.
• Bring to the boil & then simmer for about 4 - 6 hours (until the liquid has reduced by half).
• Allow to cool & then strain the stock into a clean, large saucepan.
• Add the soy, rice wine vinegar & bouillon to the reduced stock.
• Bring to the boil & then simmer. TASTE TASTE TASTE. It should be bangin’ delish - but feel free to adjust to your liking.
• Now your broth is done, simply bring to the boil & add wontons (from frozen). Just follow the packet instructions. 
• We add the BBQ PORK just after we add the wontons, so the meaty flaves can infuse the broth. 
• Put a lid on the saucepan, so you don’t lose any broth via the vapour. 
• Then add the egg noodles (which usually take just 2 mins - follow the packet instructions). 
• We add the broccoli just after we add the noodles. We like our broc 'al dente’. 
• You can replace the broccoli for any Asian greens…whatever floats your foodie boat.
• Then you’re done! 
• Divide the soup / noodles / wontons / BBQ PORK & broc between 2 bowls.
• Spoon some chilli oil over the top & tuck in!
• Heaven in a bowl! ❤️
