For the filling:

  • 300g ground pork (can substitute with ground chicken, beef, or tofu for a vegetarian option)
  • 2 cups finely chopped cabbage
  • 3 green onions, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon ginger, minced
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

For assembling and cooking:

  • 24 round dumpling wrappers (about 3-inch diameter)
  • 2-3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup water


Prepare the Filling:

1- In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground pork, chopped cabbage, green onions, minced garlic, minced ginger, soy sauce, oyster sauce, sesame oil, sugar, salt, and black pepper. Mix well until all ingredients are thoroughly combined.

Assemble the Dumplings:

1- Place about a tablespoon of filling in the center of each dumpling wrapper.

2- Moisten the edges of the wrapper with water using your fingertip.

3- Fold the wrapper over the filling to create a half-moon shape, then pinch the edges to seal tightly. You can also pleat the edges for a decorative touch.

Pan-Fry the Dumplings:

1- Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat and add about 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil.

2- Place the dumplings in the skillet, flat side down, making sure they're not touching each other.

3- Cook for 2-3 minutes or until the bottoms are golden brown and crispy.

4- Carefully pour in 1/2 cup of water into the skillet. Immediately cover with a lid to trap the steam.

5- Reduce heat to medium-low and let the dumplings steam for 8-10 minutes or until the water has evaporated.

6- Remove the lid and continue cooking for another 1-2 minutes or until the bottoms are crispy again and the filling is cooked through.


1- Transfer the fried dumplings to a serving plate, crispy side up.

2- Serve hot with your favorite dipping sauce, such as soy sauce mixed with a splash of rice vinegar, chili oil, or a combination of soy sauce and sesame oil.
