I am so thrilled that my pan-fried dumplings were featured on Design Sponge. Since everyone loves dumplings, I wanted to share the recipe here.
This pan-fried dumplings recipe is probably the best and most authentic recipe you will find online. These Chinese dumplings are so crispy on the outside but inside is filled with moist, juicy, and extremely flavorful meat and veggie fillings. I made the dumpling wrapper from scratch but you can just use the packaged dumpling wrapper for quick and easy assembling.
Make a big batch of these dumplings and freeze them in the freezer in a plastic bag. When you are ready to cook, just thaw at room temperature and pan-fry the dumplings until golden perfection. They are best served with Chinese black vinegar but Ponzu will work just fine. Enjoy!
