the dough for the noodle was a little stiff so they turned out a little thicker than i like and the meat was a little dry i used Chicken. i will make these again but will make the dough a little softer so its easer to roll and maybe add a little broth to the meat and more veggies to the mix thank you for the recipe.
So not know what I did wrong. Mine fell apart during the steam step. ?? They still tasted good though!
These were great. I had some leftover pork roast and substituted pork for the chicken. I also added some minced garlic and black pepper. I purchased the wrappers. Thanks for the recipe.
