Toss the take-out menu and cook up this Chinese-American favorite on your skillet.


  • ¼ pound ground pork

  • 1 tablespoon minced chives

  • 1 ½ teaspoons soy sauce

  • 1 ½ teaspoons dry sherry

  • 1 teaspoon minced peeled fresh ginger

  • ½ teaspoon sesame oil

  • ½ teaspoon cornstarch

  • 20 wonton wrappers (from a 12-ounce package)

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • Soy-Ginger Dipping Sauce


  1. In a bowl, combine pork, chives, soy sauce, sherry, ginger, sesame oil, cornstarch, and 1 tablespoon water.

  2. Place a heaping teaspoon of pork mixture in center of a wonton wrapper. Lightly wet edge of wrapper, fold over, and press to seal. Repeat to form remaining dumplings (makes 20).

  3. In 2 batches, cook dumplings in a large pot of boiling water until cooked through, 4 minutes; transfer to a plate with a slotted spoon. In a large nonstick pan, heat vegetable oil over medium-high. In two batches, cook until browned, about 1 1/2 minutes per side. Serve with dipping sauce.


Cook's Notes

Freeze raw dumplings on a baking sheet, then store in bags, up to 3 months. Cook from frozen.
