What You Need:
- 1 lb. ground pork or chicken
- 1 cup napa cabbage, finely shredded
- ¼ c shredded carrots, finely shredded
- ¼ c. mushrooms, finely minced
- 1-2 cloves garlic
- 1 tsp. minced fresh ginger
- 1 tsp. sesame oil
- 1 Tbsp. soy sauce
- 1 tsp. canola oil
- 1 tsp. white vinegar
- 1 egg
- 1 package square wonton wrappers
- Vegetable oil for cooking
What You Do:
- Combine all ingredients except the wrappers and vegetable oil in a large mixing bowl.
- Pour some water into a small bowl and set it near your workspace.
- Scoop a spoonful of the mixture onto a wonton wrapper.
- Dip your finger into the bowl of water and trace the edge of the wrapper to wet it.
- Carefully fold the wrapper in half diagonally to form a triangle. Press gently where the edges meet to seal it closed.
- Repeat the process until all the wrappers are filled!
- Pour a small amount of vegetable oil into a large frying pan and heat over medium heat.
- Place the filled dumplings in the pan and cook until they are browned, about 2-3 minutes. Use tongs or a spatula to turn the dumplings over and brown the other side.
- While the dumplings are browning, place a vegetable steamer basket inside a pot of water, making sure the water level is below the steamer basket. (A colander resting on the rim of the pot will also work if you do not have a steamer basket.)
- Heat the water until boiling and carefully place a single layer of dumplings in the steamer basket. You may need to steam them in several batches if your steamer basket is small.
- Cover and steam the dumplings until they are soft and the meat is cooked through, about 10-20 minutes.
- Serve with soy sauce for dipping and enjoy!
Serve your dumplings with rice and veggies and you have a complete meal!
