My Pork Dumplings

Ingredients

I kg Pork lean ground coarsely (its important that its grounded coarsely)
1 oo grams shrimp meat chopped finely
200 grams minced Pork fat (this is also very important)
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup water chestnut grated
1/4 cup spring onion chopped
1 cup white chinese mushroom chopped
3 tablespoons corn flour
3 tablespoons grated garlic
1/2 teaspoon all spice powder
1/2 teaspoon all spice salt
1/2 tablespoon ground black pepper
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 eggs beaten
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1 tablespoon rice wine
1 tablespoon sugar

Preparation

1
Put ground pork, chopped shrimp and minced pork fat in a bowl (big enough to mix all the ingredients).
2
Add grated carrots, bread crumbs, water chestnut, spring onion, chopped white mushroom, cheese, flour, grated garlic, all spice powder, all spice salt and ground black pepper.
3
Mix them until well combined.
4
In another bowl, put the rest of the ingredients: soy sauce, eggs, sesame oil, rice wine and sugar.
5
Mix well until sugar dissolves and add to the bowl of pork mixture. Combine all the ingredients and set aside in the fridge overnight before wrapping. It means you need to marinate the mixture overnight.
6
Half a tbsp for each wrapper is enough but if you want it big,then you can adjust according to your preference. I want mine not big but not very small so half a tbsp per wrapper is just fine.
7
Arrange in a bamboo steamer or aluminum steamer but if you have the means, use bamboo steamer. I went to Singapore China Town just to buy Bamboo steamer, kinda expensive but I don't mind. I want my Chinitas to be in their respective kingdom!
8
Steam in a medium heat for 25 to 30 minutes.
9
Note:
10
For the wrapper, you can buy vacuum pack wanton wrapper nowadays. It is nice if you can make your own dumpling wrapper but I cant waste much of my time so I buy wanton wrapper.
11
For proper storage: you can store the prepared dumplings in the freezer. Just thaw them before steaming.

13
Cup soy sauce
14
Cup chilled water

Juice of 12 pcs calamansi

27
Tsp sugar
28
Tsp vinegar
29
Cup olive oil
30
Combine the ingredients except olive oil and keep the other 1/4 cup of water too.
31

32

33
