Prep Time 30 mins
Cook Time 15 mins
Total Time 40 mins
Servings 35 dumplings


  • 1 lb. ground pork
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger grated
  • 1 ½ cups cabbage finely chopped
  • 2-3 tablespoon green onions green and white parts
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon chili paste
  • 1 egg


  • 1 package square wonton wrappers


Creating Pork Filling

  • Begin by grating peeled ginger and mincing garlic. Chop up green onions and cabbage.
  • In a medium-sized mixing bowl add ground pork, garlic, ginger, green onions, cabbage, soy sauce, sesame oil, chili paste, and one egg. 
  • Stir mixture until well combined. 

Filling Dumplings

  • Fill a small bowl with lukewarm water and set to the side. 
  • Take wonton wrapper in one palm, and dip the index finger of the other hand into the water and wet the outline of the wrapper. 
  • Place a spoonful of filling in the middle of the square.
  • Connect both diagonal corners with each other and then seal the rest of the edges.

Steaming Dumplings:

  • When you are ready to cook the dumplings, add one inch of water to a large pot and bring to a boil. Place extra cabbage leaves on either a metal or bamboo steamer so that the dumplings wont stick.
  • Steam, covered, for 10-15 minutes, until wonton wrappers are translucent and filling is cooked through. Serve in broth or with soy sauce.
