I made homemade pork dumplings last week and I wanted to share the recipe with you guys! I also made a short video of the process of making them. I actually was following a recipe found online to make them.

Recipe Ingredients:

  • Cabbage
  • Chives
  • Garlic
  • Dumping wrappers (Found at our local Asian market)
  • Ground Pork
  • Sesame Oil
  • Regular Oil (I used Canola)


Chop cabbage, chives and garlic into tiny bits. Use as much cabbage and garlic as you’d like.

Put all the chopped cabbage, garlic and chives into a bowl. Dump your ground pork into the mix. Add a table spoon of sesame oil. Use your hand to mix everything together.

Use a spoon to grab some of the mix and place it into the wrapper. I put water on the edges of the wrappers to help them stay closed. A friend showed me a trick to use a fork to push down the edges in case you can’t get them to stay closed.

Heat up pan at medium high. Pour some oil onto the pan and place roughly up to 5-6 gyozas onto the pan. Let me sit on the oil for 2 minutes.

Add a small amount of water. Let me cook for 6 minutes.

Add sesame oil on top of the dumplings to give them color and more flavor. Let them cook for 2 minutes.

That’s it! Hope you enjoyed the recipe! We like to serve them with a small saucer of soy sauce.
