Pork Dumplings

You'll need

  • 1 (2-inch) piece peeled fresh ginger( cut into matchstick length and width)
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped fresh ginger
  • 1/2 cup light soy sauce
  • 1 bunch scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 lb. Loften County® ground pork
  • Wonton wrappers

Let’s get cooking!

Step 1

Instructions:  Combine 5 tablespoons of the soy sauce with ginger matchsticks in a small bowl.  Set aside.

Step 2

Finely chop scallions.  Reserve 2 tablespoons of scallions for garnish.  In a bowl, add pork, scallions,  finely chopped ginger, and remaining soy sauce. Gently knead with your hands in bowl until just combined. Chill mixture, covered, for approximately 10 minutes.

Step 3

Lay out wonton wrappers on a cookie sheet to begin forming dumplings.  Place 2 slightly rounded teaspoons of pork mixture into wrapper.  Fold wrapper to seal ends.  Form the rest of dumplings.

Put formed dumplings on lined baking sheet. Cover dumplings loosely with paper towels.

Step 4

Carefully place all dumplings into a 6- to 8-quart pot of boiling water, gently stirring once to prevent sticking, and cook 6 minutes. (Dumplings will float to top while cooking.)  Transfer dumplings with a slotted spoon to a serving dish and sprinkle with reserved scallions.   Serve with ginger dipping sauce.

Step 5

Cooks’ note: Dumplings can be formed 1 day ahead. Chill in 1 layer, not touching, on lined baking sheet, loosely but completely covered with plastic wrap.
