Make wonton soup by first mixing together 1/2 pound of minced boneless lean pork, 1 chopped green onion, 1/2 teaspoon of sugar, 2 dashes of pepper and 1 teaspoon of cornstarch. Stir in 1 tablespoon of soy sauce, 1 tablespoon of oyster sauce, 1 teaspoon of sherry and a few drops of sesame oil. Lay out 18 wonton wrappers, and spoon the pork filling into each one. Drip a little water on the edges of the wrapper to ensure a good seal, and fold the ends firmly together. Cook the wontons in boiling water for five to eight minutes.

Bring 4 1/2 cups of chicken stock to a boil, and add the wontons and 1 thinly sliced green onion. After removing the pot from the heat, stir in a little sesame oil, and serve.

Follow a similar process for crab rangoons, but fry them in oil instead of boiling them. To make the crab filling, mix together 8 ounces each of cream cheese and crab meat, 1 teaspoon of chopped red onion, 1 sliced green onion, and 1 minced garlic clove. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce, 1/2 teaspoon of soy sauce, and black pepper to taste.
