Spicy Pork Dumplings

I was in the mood for dumplings again (well, when not...;)?), but this time I wanted to make easy, fuss-free dumplings, so I used ready-made dumpling wrappers to save time. These are just normal steamed pork dumplings with the usual ingredients of ground pork, green onions, oyster sauce, and the like. However this time the sauce is different. I wanted something spicy instead of something sourly for the sauce (which is the case when you use black vinegar as condiment), so I whipped up some homemade hot and spicy sauce using sesame oil, chili-garlic sauce and Thai chili-paste (which contains some dried shrimp).




Ingredients


Pork Dumplings
  • 250 g ground pork
  • 1 cup chopped green onions
  • 1 tbs fish sauce
  • 2 tbs oyster sauce
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp paprika/cayenne pepper powder
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp minced ginger
  • Dumpling wrappers
Hot and Spicy Sauce
  • 5 tbs sesame oil
  • 1 tbs Lee Kum Kee Chili-Garlic sauce
  • 1 tbs Thai chili paste in oil







Steam the dumplings for 8-10 minutes.




Serve with the hot and spicy sauce!

  33. Dear
    We often use here in Brazil, various forms of potato. This potato is something like shoestring potato .
    I dont't Know if in your country you have that kind of potato. But itis so simple, Potato cut into strips, then fried in oil.

  34. @ Eliana - Thanks for the explanation, Eliana. Fried potato strips sound delicious...!!

  40. These are seriously seriously making me drool, esp. that hot sauce on the top! OMG..

    back in India we would enjoy the Tibetian momos, which are similar to the dumplings with this kind of spicy sauce and hot clear soup. I love the way you have pleated them. gorgeous.

  42. You are really good with your hands! The pleatings are so nice and even... professional standard! I tried pleating buns, jiao zi before, but they look horrible. My fingers are too clumsy.
