Chinese dumplings or jiaozi is a staple in many parts of China, especially northern China. I love Chinese jiaozi as they are so versatile. For the filling, you can pretty much use anything you want: ground pork is the most common ingredient, but you can also fill these jiaozi dumplings with beef, chicken, shrimp, vegetables, or a filling of different combinations.
This pork and chive dumplings recipe is one of the most traditional Chinese dumplings recipe. Other than time consuming, it’s really not that hard to make them. This recipe was inspired by Use Real Butter.
For the dumpling wrapper, I strongly urge you to make it from scratch but store-bought dumpling wrapper will be just fine. Either way, these pork and chive dumplings are absolutely delicious and bursting with juicy flavors. Enjoy!
