I watched this recipe being made on the Food Network on Semi Homemade Cooking with Sandra Lee and knew I had to hunt down the recipe. Mmmm, one of my favorite dishes at a chinese buffet.
- 1 (12 ounce) package pork sausage
- 2 green onions, minced
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
- 1⁄2 teaspoon minced garlic
- 24 square wonton wrappers (usually in the supermarket vegetable section where your fresh garlic and ginger would be found)
- nonstick cooking spray
- soy sauce or hoisin sauce or chili-garlic sauce or Chinese hot mustard
- In a medium bowl, combine sausage, green onions, soy sauce, hoisin sauce and garlic.
- Place 8 wonton wrappers on a clean surface and brush edges with water.
- Place 1 tablespoon of mixture in the center of each wrapper.
- Gather edges of wrapper together over filling.
- Press edges of wrappper together enclosing the filling completely.
- Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling.
- Place a collabsible metal steamer rack in a large wide pot.
- Fill pot with 1/2 inch of water.
- Spray steamer with non-stick cooking spray.
- Bring water to a simmer.
- Working in batches, arrange dumplings on rack 1" apart.
- Cover pot with lid and steam dumplings until cooked thoroughly, about 8 minutes.
- Watch the water level and add more as needed.
- Transfer dumplings to a platter and serve with dipping sauces.
I tried this out with ground pork instead of pork sausage and it is IDENTICAL to my favorite Chinese restaurant potsticker dumplings. Very easy, very delicious and the 8-minute steam time was perfect! Thank you!
