Ingredients

  • 1 lb. extra lean ground sirloin
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped
  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro (optional)
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 tsp. grated fresh ginger
  • 2 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 tsp. sesame oil

How to Make It

1.

In a medium bowl, combine the beef, green onions, cilantro, garlic, ginger, soy sauce and sesame oil and mix it all up with your hands.

2.

Set out a small dish of water, and working with one or two at a time, place a small spoonful of filling in the middle of each wrapper; moisten the edges with the water (dip your finger in) and fold over, pressing the edge tightly to seal.

3.

Place seam side up on a baking sheet and cover with a tea towel to prevent them from drying out.

4.

Boil the dumplings in water for 3-4 minutes, or cook in a skillet with a drizzle of oil, adding 1/2 cup of water or stock and covering to cook them through.

5.

Stir together the ingredients for the dipping sauce and serve with the dumplings.
