Baked Pork Flower Dumplings with Soy Ginger Dipping Sauce
Sometimes, pork just wants to be elegant. Don’t get me wrong, pork does enjoy being in the comforting, homey dishes like pulled pork and pork chops, or more often in our house, pork stir fry. But every now and then, the mood strikes, and it has the desire to put on its frilly dress and head out to the gala. So we let ground pork mingle with a juicy mixture of scallions, ginger, and Serrano, then wrapped them up in wonton wrappers and baked them into some fancy, flowery dumplings. A lime and soy ginger sauce gives it a final adornment on its way to the ball. These dumplings do a great job of being juicy on the inside and crispy on the outside, without any need to fry in oil.
