Beef dumplings 

 
I always enjoyed eating dumplings while eating at restaurants because I was convinced I needed extra set of cooking ustensils that I didn’t own. I’m not sure where this idea came from. I had chicken, beef and vegetarian dumplings many times before and never had thought of trying my own. 

Then recently my friend Aliza (@theghettogourmet) – who is an excellent cook and food blogger inspired me to make them. It takes a little bit of time to wrap them nicely but the results don’t disappoint. The taste is perfect!

1 pound of ground beef 

1 egg beaten

2 diced scallions 

1 tsp of rice vinegar 

2 tsp of garlic powder 

2 tsp of soy sauce 

1 tsp of ginger

1 tsp of sesame oil

1 package wonton wrappers (round)

In a large bowl, mix together all of the ingredients. Place the wonton on flat surface. Add a tsp of filling in the center. Wet the edges of the wonton with a little bit of water and fold it in half. Create pleats with the thumbs. Heat up 1 tbsp of vegetable oil in a large skillet. Fry the dumplings for 2min on one side only. Pour 1/2 cup of water very slowly and cover with a lid. Cook until the dumplings start shrinking a little bit and the water has evaporated completely. 

Serve with a soy based dipping sauce.
