Steamed Pork Dumplings Recipe

There’s nothing more comforting than a chilly winter’s day paired with a warm and delicious dish. These Steamed Pork Dumplings are truly comfort food and everything you love about takeout but even better. It’s true what they say – homemade is best. If you find yourself looking for a flavorful and simple dish, then look no further.


This recipe is not only delicious but very easy to make. All you have to do is combine all the ingredients, add a spoonful of the mixture to wonton wrappers, and steam. It can also be a fun family activity to sit and mingle while filling the wonton wrappers!


A Few Key Ingredients:  

  • Ground Pork – you can also use ground chicken 

  • Sesame Oil – a flavorful addition 

  • Wonton Wrappers – you can buy these from the frozen section or take a stab at making yourself with this recipe! 

We recommend using a bamboo steamer to cook your dumplings. You can typically find these in your local grocery store and it’s always a great tool to have on hand for steaming dumplings and vegetables. If you don’t have a bamboo steamer, never fear, you can also prepare these delicious dumplings by using a wire steamer or by propping a plate over a sauté pan filled with water.  


Steamed Pork Dumplings Recipe

Serves 12


1 pound ground pork  

1 (5 ounce) can water chestnuts  

¾ cup scallions, finely chopped  

4 garlic cloves, minced  

1 tablespoon sesame oil  

1 egg, beaten 

2 tablespoons oyster sauce  

1 (16 ounce) package wonton wrappers 

Strain the water chestnuts and finely chop. Mix together all ingredients except wonton wrappers. Fill the center of each wrapper with 1 heaping spoon of meat filling. Dip a small brush (or your finger) in a small bowl of water and wet edges of wrapper. Fold over to create a triangle and pinch edges together so that the filling cannot escape. Place bamboo steamer in a large sauté pan. Fill the bottom with water, just below the first layer of the steamer so the dumplings do not get wet. Place dumplings 1 inch apart and steam until filling is cooked, about 20 minutes. 


Serve It Up
