Pork Cabbage Potsticker Wonton Dumplings (Steamed or Fried)
Chinese New Year is just around the corner at the end of January and early February and pork dumplings are a tradition to have at that time. These dumplings are so satisfying as an appetizer or for dinner. 1 recipe makes 70-80 bite-size dumplings!
This is the 3rd recipe in the Life’s Little Sweets dumpling series. It all started off with Beef Potsticker Wonton Dumplings Recipe, you can read about the origin of the series there and then a dessert dumpling recipe, Banana Cinnamon Sugar Dumplings of which my husband Eric did the recipe development.
In this Pork Cabbage Potsticker Wonton Dumplings recipe, I folded them in the most simple way, as a triangle, without any pleats.
To see a photo collage tutorial with the steps to fold it into a rounded dumpling shape, which would be great for soups, see Banana Cinnamon Sugar Dumplings.
In this post, I pan-fried them in regular olive oil, to see what these dumplings look like steamed, check out Beef Potsticker Wonton Dumplings Recipe (Steamed or Fried).

Enjoy them in a Soup Broth
We enjoy these dumplings in a broth soup as well. I do a cheater, quickie Asian-style broth soup where I just use my favorite chicken soup base, a drizzle of low-sodium soy sauce and a few drops of sesame oil. Then when I am serving it, I toss a handful of freshly chopped scallions.
We like Reduced Sodium Better than Bouillon Chicken Base, this is ALWAYS in our refrigerator!
