Happy Chinese New Year!

Chinese New Years may have passed but you can still create your own wonderful hot dumplings to eat on a cold day. You can buy frozen ones at the store but what’s the fun in that?

For Dumplings:

  • Wonton wrappers
  • 1 ¾ Ground pork
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger root
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced scallion
  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 5 cups finely shredded Nappa cabbage

For soy vinegar dipping sauce:

  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 whole scallion, trimmed and sliced
  • 1 hot green chili, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons water
  1. Combine all the ingredients for soy vinegar dipping sauce in a bowl and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the pork, ginger, garlic, scallion, soy sauce, sesame oil, egg and cabbage. Stir until well mixed.
  3. Place 1 teaspoon of pork filling on each wonton skin. Moisten the edges of the wonton skin and fold the edges to form a triangle shape to seal it.
  4. Boil a pot of water and dump your dumplings into boiling water until the dumpling starts to float. Let it boil for 1-2 more minutes then take them out and they’re ready!
