These delicious pork dumplings are perfect for appetizers or a light dinner!



  • 3/4 pound lean ground pork
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoons minced ginger
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 4 scallions, minced finely
  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 package of square wonton wrappers

For The Dipping Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup of soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, peeled and grated or minced finely
  • 1 tablespoon scallions, minced finely


  1. Mix all of the dumpling ingredients (not the wrappers) in a small bowl until well combined.
  2. Place a heaping tablespoon of filling into the center of a wonton wrapper, then wet 2 sides with water and fold over to seal into a triangle. Take the left and right points and fold up onto the wonton (shown in photo)
  3. Place a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add in a light coating of peanut oil to the bottom of the skillet. Once the oil is hot, add as many dumplings that will fit in a single layer.
  4. Let the dumpling cook for 2-3 minutes until the bottoms get browned, then carefully pour in 1/4 cup of water and cover the skillet quickly. Let cook for another 3-4 minutes until filling is cooked through.
  5. Remove and repeat with remaining dumplings.
  6. Make the dipping sauce by adding all the ingredients to a small bowl and mixing together to combine.
