Directions See How It's Made
- Process pork loin in a food processor until finely chopped.
- Combine pork loin, sausage, and next 11 ingredients.
- Cut corners from wonton skins to form circles. Drop 1 teaspoon mixture onto middle of each skin. Gather up skin sides, letting dough pleat naturally. Lightly squeeze the middle while tapping the bottom on a flat surface so it will stand upright.
- Arrange dumplings in a bamboo steam basket over boiling water. Cover and steam 20 to 25 minutes. Serve with sauces, if desired.
- NOTE: To freeze, arrange dumplings on a baking sheet; freeze for 2 hours. Place in zip-top freezer bags; label and freeze for up to 2 months. To cook dumplings from frozen state, steam for 22 to 25 minutes.
