Make your own pork dumplings with a spicy soy dipping sauce

2 cups pork mince
handful fresh coriander chopped
1/2 onion finely chopped
1 teaspoon grated ginger
1 teaspoon chili flakes
salt and black pepper
30 wonton wrappers
1 small cabbage leaves washed
1 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon grated ginger
2 bird eye chili finely chopped
sprouts to serve
fresh coriander to serve

How to
First off remove the wonton wrappers from the freezer, I bought mine frozen at a Chinese supermarket, and leave to thaw for half an hour.

In a mixing bowl, combine the pork mince, coriander, onion, ginger and chilli.

Season and mix through with your hands.

Carefully remove the wrappers one by one, placing it on a dry surface.

My wrappers where square, so I basically used a pizza cutter to cut the corners off.
Add a teaspoon of filling in the middle of the wrapper.

Fold it over, releasing any air inside, wet the edge of the wrapper with water and press down, making sure it is sealed.

Cover with cling wrap as you go…

Place the cabbage leaves in the bottom of the steamer, arrange the dumplings on them, making sure they don’t touch, or they will stick like crazy.

Steam for 18 minutes on high.

Combine the soy, balsamic, ginger and chilli for the dipping sauce and garnish with sprouts and coriander.
