DIRECTIONS

  • Whisk all ingredients for the dipping sauce well and set aside.
  • Mix all of the meat mixture ingredients together and let it marinade for an hour or so for best flavor.
  • Place a scant tablespoon of filling in the center of a wrapper and fold and tuck. You know how it is done or look up a video tutorial on Youtube.( I really suck at folding those little time-consuming dumplings so for years I have just bought egg roll wrappers and make them like that) They aren't as pretty as the little cute parcels but it is a huge time saver for me.
  • Steam them for 9 minutes. If you have a Chinese steamer- fine. (I don't) You can use a vegetable steamer in a large sauce pan or I use my electric wok with the steamer attachment. Spray the steamer rack with Pam or vegetable and you will have no problem with them sticking.
  • The serving size is subjective depending on whether you use little wonton wrappers or egg roll wrappers so don't pay any attention to that -- but I had to enter something. The recipe will feed four however you decide to make them unless you are a glutton like me and then the serving size is just for one with a little bit left over for a snack the next day :-).

“This a really terrific filling for those Asian steamed dumplings. The recipe was given to me by a good friend who is a chef at Benihana. You can use ground pork, ground shrimp, or ground turkey with great success. I have posted the recipe using ground pork because that is the typical mixture most people are accustomed to... but shrimp is a great indulgence and ground turkey is what I usually use and I love it.”
