Ok, mostly daughter dumplings. But I did add value in an advisory capacity. A nice project together:
She riffed off a Cooking Channel recipe you can find here. Briefly sauté minced ginger, scallions and garlic in sesame oil. Mix into ground pork with an egg, a bit of 5 spice powder, salt and pepper. Spoonfuls into dumpling wrappers, wet edge and seal. Into hot pan with a bit of oil, let it go until the bottoms brown, 2-4 mins. Add enough water to come halfway up the sides of the dumplings, cover and let steam 5-6 mins. Water should cook off.
Dip in a mix of hoisin, soy sauce and Sriracha. These were really amazing.
We are totally doing these for company.
