How to Wrap Perfect Pork Dumplings

Whether you’re a dumpling pro or just starting out, learning to properly wrap dumplings is an exciting and rewarding experience. This guide will take you through the process step-by-step and show you how to create perfectly wrapped pork dumplings every time.

First, gather your ingredients and prepare your filling. For this recipe, we will be using pork, but feel free to experiment with other meats or veggies. Next, take a dumpling wrapper and place a heaping teaspoon of filling in the center. To ensure that the wrapper sticks together, lightly brush the edges with water.

Fold the wrapper in half to form a half-circle, and pinch the center together. Then, using your thumb and index finger, make a pleat towards the center of the wrapper. Repeat this process, making 3-4 pleats down the right side of the dumpling. It’s important to only pleat the top layer of the wrapper while leaving the bottom layer smooth. Repeat the process on the left side of the dumpling.

Finally, dip your fingertips in water and lightly pinch the seams together to ensure a good seal. And there you have it! A perfectly wrapped pork dumpling.

I recommend making a large batch of dumplings and storing them in the freezer for quick and easy meals in the coming weeks. These dumplings can be boiled, steamed, or pan-fried straight from the freezer, making them a convenient and delicious option for any meal.
