Ground Beef Chinese Dumplings


In case I haven't said this lately...I'm in LOVE with Asian food.  I have a Pho addiction.  Every time I order Pho, I always get dumplings as an appetizer.  I wanted to try to make some of my own.  After some research on pinterest, I came up with this recipe:

1/2 lb ground beef
1/2 Cup shredded carrots
2 T. minced onion
2 Large cloves minced garlic
splash of soy sauce - 1/2 tsp.
1 T. Teriyaki Sauce - I used honey flavor
2 T corn starch

Mix all of this together until well blended.  You could make this with any ground protein or even vegetarian.  If I had it, I would have added shredded cabbage and grated ginger too.  








Put a rounded teaspoon of mixture into a wonton wrapper.  Seal the edges with water and pinch together.  In a pan heat up 2 T. vegetable oil over low heat.  Pan fry the dumplings until lightly brown...my pan was too hot...slow and low is always best.



Once brown, add 1/4 cup water, a spash of soy sauce and 1 tablespoon seasame oil - for flavor.  Cover and steam on low for 7-10 minutes, I didn't time this, make sure they are cooked through yet not too mushy.





I also made some without steaming them.  I did all the same steps except, I pan fried in butter.





I  made them for breakfast.  

These are so yummy and easy to make.  I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I did.

Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.
