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.

 

SERVES: 6-8

 

INGREDIENTS:

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 package square or round dumpling skins

1 small cucumber

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.

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