Very tasty! My husband really loved these. I made a couple of changes- added 1 tsp. sherry and 1 tbl. sesame oil to the meat mixture and mixed the cornstarch with water before adding it to the sauce (which was tangy and sweet!)
Try adding a tablespoon of sesame oil into the filling mixture and you will love the authentic Chinese taste.
