Pork Dumplings

These are super easy to make from scratch despite how beautiful and delicious the finished product is. Don’t forget to serve alongside the Ponzu glaze for a meal to remember!


1/2 pound ground pork
1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon Chinese 5 spice
2 tablespoons green onion, finely sliced
1 package round wonton wrappers
2/3 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon sriracha
1 orange, zested and juiced
1 tablespoon sesame oil
Salt & pepper to taste


Mix first 5 ingredients together, season, and set aside.

Mix soy sauce, sugar, sriracha and juice together in a saucepan over medium heat, and reduce to a loose glaze.

Lay wonton wrappers down and spoon 1 tablespoon of pork mixture into each wonton. Brush edges with water, fold and crimp edges closed.

Heat non-stick pan on medium high temperature. Add sesame oil to coat pan and add dumplings one at a time, bottom end first.

Once all dumplings are added, add 1/2 cup of water, reduce heat to medium-low and cover for 3-4 minutes.

Remove sear-steamed dumplings from pan, put on a serving dish with Ponzu sauce and enjoy!
