Siu Mai - Steamed Pork Dumplings

Print Friendly and PDF

This is Denny's favorite dim sum called siu mai or pork dumplings. I steamed them in two, 12" bamboo steamers which I bought at Ranch 99 Market. The steamers fit my large wok perfectly. You can serve them with a dipping sauce of equal portions of garlic chili paste mixed with soy sauce. They can be frozen individually on a cookie sheet, then transferred to a freezer container.  

1/2 lb. won ton skin (round)

1 lb. ground pork, finely chopped
1/2 lb. fresh shrimp, shelled, deveined and finely chopped
1/4 cup water chestnuts, finely chopped
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup water
1 tsp salt
1 T soy sauce
2 stalks green onions finely chopped
4 Chinese mushrooms, soaked and finely chopped
1/2 tsp sesame oil

Mix all filling ingredients together. Spoon heaping tablespoon in center of skin. Gather the sides of the wrapper around the filling and squeeze center to form a pouch. Place in a steamer and steam for 30 minutes. Makes 36 dumplings.
