Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 6 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 hot finger pepper finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon minced gingerroot
  • 8 oz lean ground pork
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped water chestnut
  • 1/4 cup minced green onion
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 24 wonton wrappers
Soy Vinegar:
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar

Method

In large skillet, heat oil over medium heat; cook garlic, pepper and ginger until softened, about 3 minutes. Add pork; cook over medium-high heat, breaking up with spoon, until no longer pink, about 3 minutes. Add water chestnuts and green onions.

In small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, cornstarch and sesame oil; stir into pork mixture. Let cool slightly.

Covering remainder with damp towel to prevent drying out, lay 4 wonton wrappers at a time on work surface; brush edges with water. Place 2 tsp (10 mL) pork mixture in centre of each. Bring up corners to meet in centre; pinch edges to seal. Place on cornstarch-covered baking sheet, leaving space between dumplings; cover with damp towel. (Make-ahead: Cover towel and baking sheet with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

Arrange dumplings, in batches and not touching, in greased steamer set over boiling water; cover and steam until firm to the touch, about 7 minutes.

Soy Vinegar:
Meanwhile, in small bowl, stir soy sauce with rice vinegar; serve with dumplings.
