Green Onion and Ginger Pork Dumplings

A few weeks ago, my super singing friend Todd came over and taught me how to make Dumplings. We created 3 different delicious dumpling recipes all made with the same pork base. I was surprise by how easy dumplings where to make. My favorite were the green onion and ginger pork dumplings; fried or steamed they will not disappoint.

Ingredients List: 

The Dough:

  • 3 cups of flour
  • 1 cup of Lukewarm water

The Filling:

  • 1 pound of pork
  • 1 tbsp of sesame oil
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • 1 tsp of cornstarch
  • 1 tsp of oyster sauce
  • 1 tbsp of Ginger
  • 1 bunch of green onions

The Steps:

  1. In a bowl combine your flour and water. Hand Mix well (until it’s smooth), cover and let sit for at least 10 minutes.
  2. While your dough is resting prep your pork filling! In a bowl combine your filling ingredients and mix well.
  3. Once your filling is prepped it will be time to knead your dough. (Click on this link for a great video on how to hand knead your dough.)
  4. Roll out your dough into a thin layer and cut into 3 inch circles. (Wine Glass size!)
  5. Lightly wet the inside edges of your wrapper with water. (Use your finger!) Scoop about 1 tsp of raw filling into the centre of your wrapper and fold over making sure the ends meet. Press down firmly on the ends to seal.
  6. You can cook your dumplings in several different ways: Steam, Boil or Fry. To boil: Fill your pot with cold water and a good helping of salt. Add your dumplings to the boiling water and cook for about 3-5 minutes (just because they float to the top doesn’t mean that they are ready)
  7. Serve with green onions and dipping sauce. (I should do a post on dipping sauces yum but until then you can click here for some ideas.)
