Crispy pan fried and steamed to perfection, how could you go wrong with these dumplings?
1 tablespoon minced garlic
2 teaspoons minced ginger
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1 small bunch scallions, white and green parts, chopped
12 ounces ground pork
3 tablespoons hoisin sauce
2 teaspoons low-sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder
1 package round dumpling wrappers
1 tablespoon vegetable or peanut oil , for frying
Add everything to a bowl minus the dumpling wrappers and veggie oil.
Lay out a few of the dumpling wrappers and add about a teaspoon of filling to each one. Wet the edges just with your finger and fold up the dumplings.
Heat the oil in a large non-stick skillet. Add a few to the oil and leave them until they are golden brown and crispy on one side. Add about a half cup of water to the pan and cover loosely with a lid. Steam them like that for 5-7 minutes.
Put them all on a platter and serve immediately with soy sauce!
