Why I Love This Recipe

These are my grandmother's version of a very traditional dim sum dish. She can no longer cook for us (she just turned 97!), so this is my americanized version. She still says that the way to really prepare the meat is with 2 cleavers, and not a food processor, or buying it ground

Ingredients You'll Need

2 packages of round won ton skins
1 ½ lb ground pork
1 ½ lb ground shrimp
½ c chinese straw mushroom, minced
1 t salt
2T brown sugar
3T soy sauce
¼ c corn starch
2T grated ginger
1T sesame oil


Mix all ingredients together very well,

Place 1 t mixture into the middle of the won ton skin and gather up sides, letting skin pleat naturally

Squeeze middle while tapping the bottom on flat surface so it will stand upright.

Place in bamboo steamer or on round plate on parchment paper

Steam for 10 minutes
