This recipe is great for those of you either on a budget or looking for comfort food dumplings (shu mai) without the flour wrapper. Gluten free!
1 lb ground pork
2 tbsp soy sauce
10 water chesnut slices minced
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tbsp sherry or chinese white wine
5 mushrooms (shitake or button)
2 tbsp minced ginger
2 tsp cornstarch
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp pepper
Mince water chesnuts, scallion, and mushrooms together either in a food processor or by hand. Mix with other ingredients. Ball into 1.5 inch diameter balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Cook for 20 minutes at 375 degrees until browned on edges. These can also be steamed in a bamboo steamer, be sure to use some lettuce on the bottom so that they do not stick.
Serve with your favorite dipping sauce. Works well with soy and sugar, peanut sauce, BBQ and honey mustard with horseradish (spicy).
