Wash and cut 3 cups of garlic chives (9 oz) into pieces.
Cut ¼ head of small cabbage (6 oz) into pieces.
After that, put 1 pound of ground pork into the mixing bowl. ( I used 85% lean, 15% fat ground pork.)
Next, put 3 cups of garlic chives (9oz) from step 1 into the mixing bowl.
Put the chopped cabbage from step 2 into the mixing bowl.
Then, add ½ teaspoon of salt, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 2 tablespoons of soy sauce and ¼ cup of oyster sauce.
Mix the ingredients very well.
In this homemade boiled dumpling recipe, I like to use homemade dumpling wrappers. Therefore, I suggest rolling and flattening the wrappers before wrapping it. Then, take a wrapper, dip some water on the finger and round the wrapper. Put a teaspoon sized filling on the wrapper.
After, fold it half and close it like a dome shaped.
Dip some water at the corners and bring the corners together. Detail see the video below the recipe card.
Repeat steps 8 to 10, until the filling is gone. (It can make around 60-70 dumplings. You can freeze them if you need.)
Pour 6 cups of water into the wok. When the water is boiling, put the dumplings in and stir it a little bit.
Cover the lid and wait until it boils. Open the lid, and add ½ cups of cold water. Close the lid. Repeat this step for 2-3 times until the dumplings are cooked. (I usually do it 3 times, especially when I use homemade dumpling wrappers.)
When the boiled dumplings are done, use a strainer to take it out.
Put the boiled dumplings into a bowl.
Meanwhile, in a glass container, put 2 tablespoons of soy sauce, ½ tablespoon of black Chinese vinegar and ½ teaspoon of chili oil (depends on your spiciness). Mix the dipping sauce well.
Drizzle some dipping sauce from step 16 and topping with some green onion (this is optional).
