Dumpling Making Report

Had some friends over yesterday and made lots of dumplings...with the help of ideas from chowhound,

http://www.chowhound.com/topics/show/...

we made some good veggie dumplings. Here's the approximate recipe:

1 leek, diced
1 very large bunch of chives, diced
6 cloves of garlic, pressed.
1 very large thumb of ginger, diced
handful of bamboo shoots, diced
handful of shitake mushrooms, diced
2 carrots, diced
2 baby bok choi, diced
1 raw egg

2 small bundles of bean thread noodle, dipped in hot water and broken into little pieces as best we could.

Soy sauce (plenty

)

That's it. We drained the excess liquid, added some flour, then filled the dumplings (using pre-bought wrappers). They came out really well.

Meanwhile I bought 3 pounds of fatty ground pork...to this we added another leek, a bunch of chives, tons of soy sauce, tons of ginger, about 8 cloves of garlic, sesame oil, sake and egg. I usually decide the filling is ready when it smells so good that I'm tempted to eat it raw. Since there was so much pork, we could have used a bit more seasoning. But the dumplings dipped in dipping sauce (sesame oil, vinegar, soy) were great.

Thanks again for the suggestions, dumplings were a big success.
