    These were delicious, I also added the finely chopped water chestnuts. Very easy to prepare. The sauce was also really good, versatile and tasty.

    The hardest thing about this recipe was not overeating! It went together easily. I added about 1 tbsp of finely minced water chestnuts to the pork filling, just because the ones I like in the restaurant have it, otherwise I made the recipe exactly as written. Had some trouble making the little dumplings until I figured out you have to dampen the edges with a wet finger, then they stayed closed nicely. Made 32, I probablyy used a bit too much filling in each. I will make this a regular!

    Followed the recipe almost to the letter, I just changed the sauce a little. I got 46 dumplings from a few grams over half a kilo of porc - maybe I understuffed them, I don't know. They are excellent anyway. I plan on adding some green onion next time. I used two times 1/3 cup of peanut butter, half of it crunchy, half of it smooth. Also used rice vinegar 'cause that's what I had. Ate some dumplings, then added 2 full tablespoons of honey. I find it much better like this. Thank you for the recipe, it's so easy to put together!

    This was fantastic and so easy to make. The only change I made was to add extra peanut butter to the sauce, otherwise made as directed. We had these for appetisers last night & everyone raved. Will definitely make this again. Thanks for sharing this keeper.

I'm Native American and live on a reserve. I love any thing that has to do with food from recipe collecting to grocery shopping. I'll try just about any food once. Right now I work in a sports store so when I'm not busy I'm always here on the Zaar.I have a lot of cookbooks that I've collected over the years but I don't use them much anymore because I'd rather do recipes here!
