Pork Chinese Dumplings – Peking Ravioli

Posted in : Kid Friendly on by : Mike

Its been a little while since I got new recipe up and posted.  However, this one is suddenly one of the kids favorites.  After paying $7 for 6 Peking Ravioli at the local Chinese restaurants I figured I could make them just as easily.  What follows is my recipie for the dumplings.  I haven’t tried making the wrappers from scratch yet because its just so easy to buy the pre-packaged ones.

To go with this I often use the Sesame-Soy Dipping Sauce which I will post separately.

Pork Chinese Dumplings - Peking Ravioli

Course Appetizer
Cuisine Chinese
Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 7 minutes
Total Time 37 minutes
Servings 40 Dumplings

Ingredients

  • 1 lb Ground Pork
  • 4 tsp minced fresh ginger
  • 1 cup minced fresh cabbage
  • 2 tsp Fresh Minced Garlic
  • 4 Green Onions White and light green parts only - minced
  • 4 Tbsp Soy Soa
  • 2 Egg Whites
  • Kosher Salt To Taste
  • 1 package Wonton Wrappers 40 ct.
  • 1 small bowl cold water

Instructions

  1. I buy fresh minced ginger and garlic but if you haven't bought them that way, mince your ginger and garlic and put in a mixing bowl.
  2. Shred cabbage and mince in a food processor
  3. Mix pork, ginger, cabbage, garlic, green onion, egg whites. Mix with your hand. You should get a pretty smooth mixture without too much liquid. You want to add the soy sauce slowly so you don't get too much liquid. Add Soy Sauce and then salt to taste.
  4. A good way to get the mixture spiced right is to take a pinch, put it on a papertowel and into the microwave for 40 seconds. The meat will cook and you can try it. Don't be afraid to add salt to season.
  5. Take a single wrapper, put about 3/4 Tbsp of mixture in the middle of the the wrapper. Then dip a brush or finger in the cold water and water the edges of the wrapper. Fold in half and seal in the center. Make 3 pinches on either side creating the folds you see in the pictures. Put on a pan. Continue until you are out of filling.
  6. You can cook immediately (see below) or freeze individually and cook later.
  7. To Cook, put in in a steamer with cabbage leaf liners for 1-2 minutes until soft. Then fry about 30 seconds on each side in a frying pan.
