Chinese Pork Dumplings

I love these at the local buffet. I realized that they are so easy to make and I can make a bunch of them to freeze for later use.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 4 large leaves napa cabbage minced
  • 3 green onions minced
  • 7 shitake mushrooms minced
  • 1/2 cup bamboo shoots minced
  • 1/4 cup ginger root minced
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons corn starch
  • 1 package wonton wrappers

Directions:

  1. Combine all ingredients except wonton wrappers in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Mix thoroughly using your hands like you would meatloaf.
  3. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes so filling will be firm.
  4. On a lightly floured surface, lay 4-6 wonton wrappers out at a time.
  5. Place 1 teaspoon of filling in the center of each wrapper.
  6. Using your finger dipped in water, brush 2 edges of the wrapper to make a "v".
  7. Fold wrapper in half diagonally and press edges to seal.
  8. Take the two corners of the sealed edge and bring them to meet in the middle, pressing firmly to seal.
  9. Place dumplings on a wax paper lined baking sheet until all are assembled.
  10. If freezing for future use, place cookie sheet in the freezer for 30 minutes to freeze dumplings before packaging.
  11. To serve dumplings, bring a large pot of water to a boil and add dumplings to pot.
  12. Boil the dumplings until they float.
  13. Garnish with additional soy sauce if desired.
