Lamb Dumplings 

Posted in Uncategorized on November 27, 2016 by lelandwong

I wanted to try making dumplings using lamb meat for a long time.  I had it before last year in flushing New York in the golden arcade.  It was made with cumin and it was good!I got a five pound boneless leg of lamb at Costco.

Chopped up the lamb.


1-1/2 tablespoon of salt

2 teaspoons of white pepper

1-1/2 tablespoons of granulated garlic, 

1 tablespoon of sesame seed oil

2 tablespoons of corn starch

4 tablespoon of Shaoxing wine

2 tablespoon of soy sauce

2 tablespoons of cumin 

1 tablespoon of minced ginger

2 teaspoons black pepper 

1 teaspoon sugar

2 cups chopped cilantro 

4 cups napa cabbage (water squeezed out with salt)

4 cups chopped celery 

Wrapped dumplings using Kim Hoang skins.  (I prefer making my own skins)

Fried and steamed dumplings in pan.

Nice and crispy!

Mmm-mmm… not bad for first try.  Maybe use more black pepper.

Dipping sauce made with black vinegar, soy sauce, sesame seed oil and chili paste.
