The boys and I love to make these! They are great steamed or fried. We generally think the steamed are much more flavorful. We always serve these with my son Nate’s Delicious Dumpling Sauce. There’s nothing quite as nice as having the whole family in the kitchen together. One of the reasons we bought our home in Raleigh, NC was because our kitchen, keeping room and eating area are one big room! Even if we’re not cooking together, we all seem to congregate around the kitchen. My husband, Mike, can often be found sitting at the counter as I cook and my boys help prepare our dinners with me often. It’s a family affair!


Combine ground pork, cabbage, soy sauce, garlic and onion powders. Turn wonton wrapper so it’s shaped like a diamond. Place a good tablespoon or so in the middle of the wonton. Moisten edges with water, fold over and seal.

Using a steamer, cook 12 to 15 minutes. Serve with Nate’s Dipping Sauce.

Nate’s Delicious Dipping Sauce

While experimenting one evening, Nate came up with this delicious dipping sauce for our Steamed Dumplings. It’s absolutely amazing!

Combine all ingredients. Enjoy with dipping sauce. Boy, my kid can cook!
