This is only ok. Chinese Wontons is way better.
My son and I had an absolute blast making these, and I thought the flavor was quite good. My husband found the dipping sauce to be too spicy, but complained that the plain dumplings were too bland without the sauce. Overall, though, I look forward to making these again with no changes.
I only made the dipping sauce for the eggrolls and appetizer eggrolls and wontons I made from Asian Pork and Shrimp Spring Rolls. This is an excellent sauce, just like the ones they serve with your dumplings in the restaurant. Thank you for sharing it.
Hi, These are great! the combination of flavors is great! So glad you posted them. Thanks. Nan
These are incredible!!! The sauce is outstanding and the dumplings were good to. I had no problems with them falling apart as the last reviewer did. I sealed mine well and they stayed together when I boiled them. I did use good quality, nice thick wrappers. I will make these again!
The only reason this recipe gets 3 stars instead of 5 is because the dumplings totally fell apart when I boiled them as the recipe stated. After just three minutes of boiling, not the five minutes called for, the dumplings just fell apart and we were left with floating meatballs and soggy dumpling dough. I tried with a few more dumplings, boiling them a scant 90 seconds or less, and these were much better, but still kinda soggy. I think that if you steamed them, they would be great. I DO plan on making this again, and steaming the dumplings, because the flavors were INCREDIBLY WONDERFUL, especially the dipping sauce! Our favorite Chinese restaurant has nothing on this recipe's flavors..it really rocks!
Steamed dumplinmgs are my favorite thing in the world and these are great. But... this dipping sauce rocks! I subbed a tsp of Sambal Olek chili paste for the pepper flakes. I'm having the leftovers right now for breakfast. Yes, breakfast. Try them cold right out of the fridge! Excellent.
Yummo - these were great! I fried them...I know I'm bad..lol. Made to the recipe and loved the won tons - but was over the moon with the sauce...totally delicious!!
