To make the filling:
  • In a large mixing bowl, add the ground pork, salt, white pepper, soy sauce, oyster sauce, Shaoxing wine, and cornstarch. Pour in about half of the infused water. Mix well. Pour in the rest of the infused water and mix until well combined. Toss the scallions inside and mix together.

To assemble the wontons:

  • Repeat with the rest.
To boil the wontons and serve:
  • In a pot over high heat, bring water to a boil. Place the wontons inside, and boil for about 5 minutes until completely cooked through.
  • In a bowl, scope the wontons in it, along with a little boiling liquid, and drizzle the sauce over them. Lastly, garnish with scallions. Enjoy!
