There is no secret that I love dumplings—such as potstickers, pork and leeks dumplings, pan-fried dumplings, or xiao long bao. Recently, a coworker from Japan is in town and we were discussing about going for a dim sum/dumpling lunch. All the dumpling talks triggered a sharp craving in me that I had to make my own steamed dumplings.
How To Make Steamed Dumplings
Making dumplings is really not so hard and you can get all the ingredients from regular stores: dumpling wrappers, ground pork, etc. To me, the slightly difficult part is the folding or pleating of dumplings, an easy skill that just requires some practices and training. If you are new to making homemade dumplings, you can just fold the dumplings into half moon shape. As you are more comfortable with the folding, then you can make your dumplings prettier like my photos here.
Steamed Pork Dumplings
My steamed dumplings are filled with ground pork and some shrimp. If you don’t eat shrimp, you can always make the dumplings with ground pork only. Most Chinese dumplings are made with pork only, but since I love shrimp, I added some shrimp. However, not everyone eat pork dumplings so feel free to choose the protein of your choice.
Do try out my Asian dumpling recipe. These dumplings make a great and refreshing lunch or afternoon snack, especially with Chinese tea. Enjoy!
