Directions

Step 1: Sift the flour into a mixing bowl and pour the water in and mix it into a firm dough. Then knead the dough until smooth on a lightly floured surface, then cover with a damp cloth and set aside for 30 minutes. While the dough is rising for Goshen’s pork dumplings chop up the white cabbage and mix it in a large bowl with the all of the ingredients for the dumpling filling.

Step 2: Lightly dust a working area with flour and get the risen dough and roll the dough into a long sausage (string) 1 inch (about 2.5 centimeters) in diameter. Cut the sausage like piece of dough into 80-90 small pieces and flatten each piece with the palm of your hand. Use a rolling pin and rollout each piece into a thin pancake (circle) about 2 ½ inches (about 6.35 centimeters) in diameter.

Step 3: The next step in Goshen’s pork dumplings is to place about 1 ½ tablespoons (about 22 grams) of the dumpling filling into the center of each pancake (circle) and fold it into a half moon pouch. Then pinch the edges firmly so that the dumpling is tightly sealed. And place all the dumplings on a large plate or plates.

Step 4: At this point bring a large pot of water (add a pinch of salt to the water) to a boil and cook the dumplings for about 10 minutes or until cooked thoroughly. Then if desired get a frying pan and put in oil and bring to a boil and pan fry the bottoms of the dumplings until golden brown.

Step 5: To make the dipping sauce combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Serve the dumplings on a plate and the dipping sauce in a small bowl on the side and enjoy Goshen’s pork dumplings.
