Steamed Pork Dumplings

Steamed Pork Dumplings

Wonton Wrappers (You Can Buy These Wrappers In Packages Of 60. You Can Freeze Whatever You Do Not Use.)
½ Pound Of Ground Pork
¼ Teaspoon Of Finely Chopped Fresh Ginger
¼ Teaspoon Of Finely Minced Garlic
A Tablespoon Of Finely Chopped Scallion
One Egg White
A Teaspoon Of Sriracha Hot Sauce (Or More If You Like Spicy)
A Teaspoon Of Soy Sauce
A Teaspoon Of Canola Oil
¼ Teaspoon Of Toasted Sesame Oil

Add the sesame oil and the canola oil to a small sauté pan. Place the pan on medium low heat for two minutes. Add the ginger, the garlic, and the scallions. Cook while stirring frequently for three minutes. Remove the pan from the heat.

Combine the ground pork, the cooked vegetables, the egg white, the hot sauce, and the soy sauce in a bowl. Mix well.

Wet the edges of a wonton wrapper with cold water. Place one level tablespoon of the pork mixture directly in the center of the wrapper. Fold the wonton wrapper up over the filling. Crimp the edges of the wrapper to completely seal the dumpling. Continue this process until all of the pork mixture has been used up. Place the filled dumplings on a plate and cover them with a damp towel.

To cook these dumplings, you will need a large pot filled with about 2 inches of water, a metal vegetable steamer insert that has been coated with cooking spray, and a lid. Bring the water to a boil. Place about 8-10 dumplings in the greased steamer insert. Put the steamer insert into the pot of boiling water. The insert should not touch the boiling water. Cover and reduce the heat to medium low. Steam the dumplings for about 8 minutes. Continue this process until all of the dumplings have been cooked.

You can serve these dumplings immediately or reheat them later in a microwave oven for two minutes. I served my dumplings with a simple dipping sauce. I whisked together 1/3 cup of soy sauce, a ¼ teaspoon of finely chopped fresh ginger, and the juice of a lime.
