       Yield: 1 servings
  
      30    Won ton filled according to
            -won ton recipe
       1 c  Roast pork, sliced
       1 qt Chicken and pork stock [Or
            -either one. S.C.]

            -cooked Oriental type. S.C.]
  
   You can fiddle with the ingredients to your hearts content.  Roast
   pork is available at Chinese markets and you could probably get it to
   go at Chinese restaurants.  Or try meat from good ol' American BBQ
   ribs, slivered. Or thinly sliced raw chicken.  Or thinly sliced
   shrimp or scallops. Or no meat at all...
   
   Yield: 4 servings
   
   PREPARATION:
   
   Prepare won ton filling and wrap as in won ton recipe.  Heat stock.
   
   COOKING:
   
   Bring a pot of water to a boil.  Add won ton and boil for 4 to 5
   minutes. Remove won ton with bamboo skimmer or slotted spoon and
   transfer to soup bowls.  Garnish with roast pork and green onions.
   Pour heated stock over won ton.  Drizzle sesame oil over won ton and
   serve.
   
   DO-AHEAD NOTES;
   
   Wrap and freeze won ton.  Drop frozen won ton directly into boiling
   water and boil for 5 to 6 minutes.
   
   COMMENTS:
   
   Unless you're Chinese you probably don't know what won ton means.
   “Won” means cloud and “Ton” means swallow.  Since won ton wrappers
   are light and fragile as clouds, biting onto won ton is like
   swallowing a cloud.
