Meat and chive dumplings have been a tradition in Chinese cuisine for centuries. While some of us view cooking as work, many Chinese families view meal prep time as quality family time – that’s something we can get behind! This recipe uses store-bought wonton wrappers, but you can try making the dough on your own as well! This recipe is part of our August meal plan.
1 tsp canola oil
¼ cup carrot, shredded
¼ cup green cabbage, finely chopped
¼ cup chives, finely sliced
1 tbsp fresh ginger, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
½ lb lean ground pork
2 tbsp hoisin sauce
2 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tbsp cilantro, fresh, chopped
24 wonton wrappers
- Prep all vegetables. Heat oil over medium heat in a medium frying pan. Add carrots, cabbage, chives, ginger and garlic. Cook, stirring, until vegetables are tender, about 6-8 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer mixture to a large bowl. Allow to cool fully.
- Add ground pork, hoisin sauce, oyster sauce and cilantro to vegetable mixture. Stir well to combine.
- Place 1 tbsp pork mixture in the centre of a wonton wrapper. Brush outer border lightly with water. Pull opposite corners together and pinch to seal. Repeat with two remaining corners. Twist to seal.
- Cook in boiling water until cooked through, about 2-3 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer dumplings to a paper towel lined plate.
- Optional: Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large frying pan over medium-high and cook dumplings until browned
on all sides.
- Serve and enjoy!
