Author's Notes

If you like dumplings that are chewy and crispy, put less filling in them. It gives you more skin for that wonderful chewy crispy texture.

Directions

Step 1
Combine Char Siu (1 lb) , Oyster Sauce (1 1/2 Tbsp) , Hoisin Sauce (1 1/2 Tbsp) , Chinese Five Spice Powder (1/2 tsp) , Honey (1 1/2 Tbsp) and Scallions (2 stalks) together into one bowl and mix until the meat has been coated in the sauce.
Step 2
To wrap the Dumpling Wrappers (1 pckg) , fill the center with a teaspoon of filling or less if you like a more chewy crispy dumpling.
Step 3
Use a bit of water along the edges as the “glue”. Fold the dough over and press on the seams to put it together.
Step 4
Add oil to a non-stick pan and adjust the heat to medium low.
Step 5
Once the oil is hot and shimmering, add a few dumplings into the pan, careful not to overcrowd it.
Step 6
Brown them lightly on each side for about 1 minute a side.
Step 7
Add 1/4 cup of water into the pan and put a lid on it and steam it for approximately 2-4 minutes. Make sure the bottom of the pan is lightly covered with water or the dumplings will burn. This will steam the dumplings to soften up the skin.
Step 8
Remove the lid and let the water evaporate. At this point the dumplings will look waterlogged and gross. That’s normal.
Step 9
Once the water evaporates, continue to brown and crisp up the dumplings for about 5 minutes.
Step 10
Remove from the pan when the dumplings are crispy. Serve and enjoy!
