Ingredients

Chinese mushrooms 2 , soaked in warm water 20 minutes
Lean pork 1/4 Pound , ground (110 Gram)
Shrimp meat 2 Ounce , minced (60 Gram)
Water chestnuts 2 , very finely chopped
Green onions 4 , very finely chopped

Wonton wrappers 16
Egg 1 , lightly beaten
Chicken stock 6 Cup (96 tbs) (1.5 Liter)
Green onions 6 , thinly sliced (White Part Only)

Directions

1 Squeeze mushrooms dry. Remove stalks and finely chop the caps. Combine mushrooms, pork, shrimp, water chestnuts, green onions, soy sauce and sherry. Let stand 30 minutes.

2 Place 1/2 tsp (2.5 ml) of filling slightly off center of each wrapper. Fold wrapper in half and press the edges together to seal them. Again, fold the wrapper in half. Pull the corners down into a crescent shape, overlapping the corners. Seal the overlap with a little beaten egg.

3 Drop the wontons one by one into boiling salted water and simmer 7 minutes, making sure they do not stick to the bottom of the pan. Drain the wontons. Bring chicken stock to a boil and add wontons and green onions.
