Why I Love This Recipe

I love Dim Sum. Whenever I am in San Francisco I go to Pearl City on Jackson St. in ChinaTown. It is every bit as wonderful as the Dim Sum I had in Hong Kong. This is one of my favorite ways to use eggplant. The recipe has changed since my friend Mrs Yee first gave it to me.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 tablespoon oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon minced ginger
4 Oriental eggplants, chopped
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon fermented black beans
1 teaspoon sesame oil
2 tablespoons minced cilantro
1 scallion, minced
2 dozen gyoza wrappers (or wonton wrappers cut into circles)


Heat oil in a wok.

Add garlic and ginger and stir-fry until fragrant.

Add eggplant and stir-fry until tender, adding a little water as needed to prevent sticking.

Add soy sauce, black beans, and sesame oil.

Stir-fry briefly to combine.

Remove from heat.

Stir in cilantro and scallion.

Working one at a time, put about 2 teaspoons of filling in the center of a gyoza wrapper.

Gather up the sides to form pleats (the top will be open).

Pinch slightly in the middle to form a "waist," press down filling on the top, and tap the bottom so that the shu mai can stand up.

Arrange on an oiled plate and steam over boiling water until dough is translucent, about 5 - 10 minutes.
