I loveeee dumplings. This is one of the foods I can eat just about everyday and I would never get sick of. While trying to decide what to cook for dinner this evening, I came across this recipe and thought I would test my culinary skills against those at the local Chinese restaurant. I am proud to say that my local Chinese restaurant is in serious competition.





1/2 lb. ground pork

2 tablespoon soy sauce

3 tablespoon sesame seeds Salt to taste Pepper to taste

8 green onions

8 small mushrooms

1 small red onion

4 tablespoon sesame oil

1 egg

1 package square or round dumpling skins

1 small cucumber




Combine ground pork, soy sauce, 2 tablespoon sesame seeds, salt, pepper, chopped green onions, minced mushrooms, chopped red onion, 2 tablespoon sesame oil, and egg in a large bowl.


Mix together.


Take one dumpling shell and wet the edges on one side.


Put a small amount of pork filling inside, and fold the skin in half, enclosing the filling inside completely.


Pinch together with fingers.


Fill the remainder of the dumpling skins.


Place 1 tablespoon sesame oil on a nonstick pan, place a few raw dumplings on pan.


Keep medium-high heat.


Cook 5-6 minutes per side, or until the skin is golden and crisp.


Remove from pan.


Garnish with sesame seeds or green onion, some enjoy this dish with a side of soy sauce.
