Pork and Cilantro Dumpling

Pork and Cilantro

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 1/2 cup minced cilantro
  • 4 scallions minced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce

Note: If you have a food processor, add your produce cut into pieces and run on high until desired consistency is reached

Other Ingredients:

  • ~50 wraps
  • Cup of warm water
  • Cooking oil (I prefer peanut oil or coconut oil)
  • Chicken broth (if unavailable, use water)
  • Frying pan with lid

Directions:

  1. Combine all your ingredients in a large mixing bowl
  2. Using a fork or a spoon, scoop a small dollop into the middle of your wrapper(there should be enough dough around the meat so that you can seal the wrap without any leakage)
  3. Dip your finger in a cup of warm water and moisten half of the circumference of the wrapper
  4. Folder in half so the dry side lines up with the wet set, press and seal
  5. Using both hands, pinch the wrap with your thumb and forefinger, fold the dough in your left fingers over your right, and pinch the layers together.  
  6. Repeat three times
  7. Heat a pan with your choice of oil (I prefer peanut or coconut oil)
  8. Place dumplings in oil, creases up
  9. Cook until bottoms have browned
  10. Pour in the chicken broth to cover the bottom of the pan (about 1/3 cup)
  11. Cover with a lid and steam
  12. Once the broth has cooked off, remove the lid 
  13. Cook until the bottoms have desired crispiness
  14. Remove from the pan and enjoy!
