Recipe

Children love dumplings and this recipe is a favorite in our family. Keep uncooked dumplings in the freezer on hand for steaming, boiling, or frying. They are also great in soup. You may use ground chicken in place of the pork.

Yield: Makes 48 dumplings

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces celery cabbage (Napa cabbage)
  • 3 teaspoons salt, divided
  • 1 pound lean ground pork
  • ¼ cup finely chopped green onions, with tops
  • 1 tablespoon white wine
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • Dash white pepper
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons vegetable oil

For the dipping sauce:

  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil

Directions

Cut the celery cabbage across into thin strips. Mix with 2 teaspoons salt and set aside for 5 minutes. Squeeze out the excess moisture.

In a large bowl, mix the celery cabbage, pork, green onions, wine, cornstarch, the remaining 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon sesame oil, and the pepper.

In a bowl, mix the flour and 1 cup boiling water until a soft dough forms. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface about 5 minutes, or until smooth.

Divide the dough in half. Shape each half into a roll 12 inches long and cut each roll into ½-inch slices.

Roll 1 slice of dough into a 3-inch circle and place 1 tablespoon pork mixture in the center of the circle. Lift up the edges of the circle and pinch 5 pleats up to create a pouch to encase the mixture. Pinch the top together. Repeat with the remaining slices of dough and filling.

Heat a wok or nonstick skillet until very hot. Add 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, tilting the wok to coat the sides. If using a nonstick skillet, add ½ tablespoon vegetable oil. Place 12 dumplings in a single layer in the wok and fry 2 minutes, or until the bottoms are golden brown.

Add ½ cup water. Cover and cook 6 to 7 minutes, or until the water is absorbed. Repeat with the remaining dumplings.

To make a dipping sauce, in a small bowl, mix the soy sauce with 1 teaspoon sesame oil. Serve with the dumplings.
