1 dash soy sauce

1 pound lean ground pork

¼ cup hoisin sauce, divided

1 (2 pound) pork tenderloin, or to taste

2 tablespoons dried cilantro

1 (4 ounce) can small shrimp, drained and chopped

2 cups beef stock

¼ cup bread crumbs

1 tablespoon red pepper flakes

1 cup chopped green onions

1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger

2 tablespoons rice vinegar

1 (16 ounce) package wonton wrappers

6 cups chicken stock


Rub pork tenderloin with 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce. Season with red pepper flakes.

Place pork tenderloin in a slow cooker. Cook on High until tender, 3 to 4 hours. Cool until easily handled, about 10 minutes. Chop into small pieces.

Mix remaining 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce, ground pork, shrimp, bread crumbs, rice vinegar, cilantro, ginger, and soy sauce together in a large bowl.

Place a 3/4-inch round ball of ground pork filling in the center of each wonton wrapper. Brush edges with water; fold and seal.

Bring chicken stock and beef stock to a low boil in a large pot. Stir in pork tenderloin. Add wontons; cook until ground pork filling is no longer pink in the center, about 7 minutes. Reduce heat to very low.

Serve soup garnished with green onions.
