pork dumplings

  • 1 (2-inch) piece peeled fresh ginger (cut into matchstick length and width)
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped fresh ginger
  • ½ cup light soy sauce
  • 1 bunch scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 lb. Loften County® ground pork
  • Wonton wrappers

instructions Combine 5 tablespoons of the soy sauce with ginger matchsticks in a small bowl. Set aside.

Lay out wonton wrappers on a cookie sheet to begin forming dumplings. Place 2 slightly rounded teaspoons of pork mixture into wrapper. Fold wrapper to seal ends. Form the rest of dumplings.

Put formed dumplings on lined baking sheet. Cover dumplings loosely with paper towels.

Carefully place all dumplings into a 6- to 8-quart pot of boiling water, gently stirring once to prevent sticking, and cook 6 minutes. (Dumplings will float to top while cooking.) Transfer dumplings with a slotted spoon to a serving dish and sprinkle with reserved scallions. Serve with ginger dipping sauce.

Cooks' note: Dumplings can be formed 1 day ahead. Chill in 1 layer, not touching, on lined baking sheet, loosely but completely covered with plastic wrap.
