Molo Soup: Liren's Sausage Recipe
As a young girl growing up in New York, Liren was inspired by a melting pot of influences and flavors. This delicious Filipino soup is an interpretation of her father’s memories.
1 package Regular Premium Pork Sausage
1/2 cup finely chopped turnip
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
2 tablespoons finely chopped green onion
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated ginger root
85 wonton wrappers, divided
1 egg white
2 cups shredded or chopped cooked chicken
8 cups chicken stock
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Combine sausage, turnip, onion, green onion, soy sauce, whole egg, ginger in a large bowl, mix until blended.
Cut 10 wonton wrappers into 1-inch strips for noodles. Cover and set aside.
Place several wonton wrappers on work surface; brush edges lightly with eggs white. Spoon one teaspoon of filling onto the center of each wrapper. Fold one edge of the wrapper to meet the other edge, forming a rectangle. Press edges together to seal. Join the bottom two ends of the rectangle together to form dumpling. Cover filled wontons with damp towel to keep moist.
Place the chicken stock in a large saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Drop in the wontons, one at time to keep them from sticking; stirring occasionally. Stir in noodle strips and chicken. Cook about 10 minutes, or until the wontons float to the top and the filling reaches 160°F.
Add salt and pepper to taste, if desired. Serve with additional chopped green onion, if desired.
