Servings: 2


  • 1/2 lb ground meat (I used beef)
  • 3 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 1 green onion diced (diced)
  • 2 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp white pepper
  • 2 tbsp chicken broth
  • 1/2 tbsp corn starch
  • 1/2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 egg


Filling marinade

  • Add all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Keep mixing until the meat reaches a paste like consistency.
  • Let the meat marinate for at least 10 minutes.

Folding/wrapping dumplings

  • Place 1-2 tsp of filling in the center of the dumpling wrapper.
  • Dip your finger in water and lightly wet all 4 side edges of the wrapper.
  • Fold the wrapper in half and push out any air bubbles. Very important step to ensure the dumplings don't burst while cooking.
  • Wet the bottom corners of the wrapper and bring them together. Use the wet corners to seal it.

Cooking the dumplings

  • Bring a pot of water to a boil.
  • Add your dumplings. Dumplings are fully cooked when they float.
  • Remove the dumplings and add to a serving plate.
  • Drizzle with your favorite chili oil and garnish with green onions. Enjoy!


*Add 1tsp of more of ginger if you'd like. I'm not a big fan of ginger so I chose to not add it.
