Beijing Dumplings

I really have a thing for Chinese dim sum! Whether they’re delicately steamed or deep fried, I love them all. Dumplings are great, but they’re a real pain to make – or so I thought. Fortunately, my Chinese friends Kenny and Sophie are masters at making them, and they have invited me to many of their dumpling cook-offs, where they’d teach me how to make and fold the delicate dough. Still, I have to admit that I find it way too hard and labour intensive to make my own dumpling dough, so I just use frozen dumpling wrappers. A big thanks to Kenny for sharing the recipe for this delicious dumpling filling.

I made this recipe in the Chinese Food episode  of my show, you can watch it here.

This is a recipe from my cookbook.
