3/4 pound ground pork or other meat
1 cup minced cabbage
2 tablespoons minced ginger
1 tablespoon minced garlic
6 scallions, white part, minced (with green tops reserved and minced)
2 tablespoons good soy sauce
48 won ton wrappers
1 egg, lightly beaten in a bowl
4 tablespoons peanut oil or vegetable oil, more or less
Dipping sauce (recipe follows)
Combine meat, cabbage, ginger, garlic, scallion whites and soy sauce in a bowl
with 1/4 cup water.
Lay a wrapper on a clean, dry surface, and using your finger or a brush, spread
a bit of egg along half of its circumference. Place a rounded teaspoon of
filling in center, fold over and seal by pinching edges together. (Do not
overfill.) Place dumplings on a plate; if you want to wait a few hours before
cooking, cover plate with plastic wrap and refrigerate. Or freeze, for up to 2
To cook, put about 2 tablespoons oil in a large, nonstick skillet and turn heat
to medium-high. A minute later, add dumplings, 1 at a time; they can touch one
another, but should still sit flat in one layer. Cook about 2 minutes, or until
bottoms are lightly browned. Add 1/4 cup water per dozen dumplings to pan, and
cover. Lower heat to medium, and let simmer about 3 minutes.
Uncover dumplings, return heat to medium-high and cook another minute or 2,
until bottoms are dark brown and crisp and water evaporates. (Use more oil if
necessary.) Serve hot, with sauce. Makes 8 appetizer servings.
Dipping sauce: Combine 1/4 cup good soy sauce, green parts of scallion and 1/4
cup rice vinegar or white vinegar.
