  • 1/2 head napa cabbage (1 pound) root cut off, cabbage halved lengthwise
  • 3/4 lb ground pork
  • 2 green onions minced
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger finely grated
  • 1 tbsp dark or regular soy sauce
  • 1/2 tbsp garlic finely grated
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 3/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • any type of sauce


  • To make the dumplings, begin by heating a steam basket above boiling water.
  • Place the cabbage in the steam basket and steam it for about 20 minutes until it is tender.
  • Transfer the cabbage to a colander and squeeze the remaining water out.  
  • Chop the cabbage evenly.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the cabbage, pork, green onions, ginger, soy sauce, garlic, sesame oil, salt, and 1 tbsp. of vegetable oil.
  • Start stirring the ingredients and then refrigerate them for 3 hours.
  • Place the flour in a large mixing bowl and slowly add cold water and the remaining tbsp. of vegetable oil.
  • Stir the flour until the dough starts to form.  Knead the dough for about 10 minutes and then refrigerate it for 30 minutes.
  • Cut the dough into 4 parts and roll each piece into perfect circles.  Place 1 tbsp. of filling in the center of each dough circle.
  • Pull the sides of the dough up and seal the top center.  Make small indentations to make it visually pleasing.
  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil and place the dumplings (in batches) inside the pot.  Afterward, boil them for about 3-4 minutes.
  • Once your Asian dumplings are done boiling, serve them with your desired sauce and enjoy.
