My husband and I love dumplings. We have a favorite dumpling restaurant in Perth that we go to called Authentic Bites and their dumplings are just amazing! But as we dont live very close to the city we have to sometimes make our own. This simple dumpling recipe hits the spot when we are craving our special pork dumplings from Authentic Bites.
500g Pork Mince
2 cups Chinese Cabbage, Shredded
2 teaspoons Garlic, minced
3 Spring onions, thinly sliced
2 Tablespoons Hoisin sauce
1 teaspoon Sesame oil
Salt and Pepper
36 Wonton wrappers
Dumpling sauce to serve
Add pork mince, cabbage, garlic, spring onion, hoisin sauce, sesame oil and a large pinch of salt and pepper to a large bowl. Mix until well combined.
Fill a small bowl with water. Lay out a wonton wrapper and use your finger dipped in water to wet the entire edge of the wrapper.
Scoop about a teaspoon of filling into the center of the dumpling wrapper.
Fold the wrapper in half and press the edges together to seal the dumpling and fold the edges back to each other.
To steam dumplings Line base of a large steamer basket with baking paper. Place dumplings, in a single layer, in basket. Pour water into a saucepan until one-quarter full. Bring to the boil over high heat. Place steamer over saucepan, ensuring base doesn't touch water. Steam dumplings for 15 to 20 minutes or until tender and cooked through. Serve dumplings warm with dipping sauce.
