Servings: 50 dumplings
For the Dough:
- 4 cups all purpose Gold Medal Flour
- 1 1/4 cups HOT water
For the Filling:
- 1 pound ground pork
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 2 tablespoons fresh grated ginger
- 2-3 cloves garlic minced
- 1/2 cup finely chopped bok choy
- 1/2 cup finely chopped water chestnuts
- 1/2 cup finely chopped scallions
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- Salt and pepper
For the Filling:
Place all the ingredients in a bowl. Mix by hand until smooth, adding 1 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Then mix the dipping sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Warm the dipping sauce (in the microwave) to dissolve the sugar, then allow it to cool completely.
Dump the dough out onto a floured work surface. Press out into an even rectangle and cut the dough into 50-60 segments.
One at a time, roll the segments into a ball. Place each ball on a flour surface and roll into a flat thin circle 3 to 4 inches across. Don't worry about it being perfectly round, focus on thin! Then place 1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons pork filling in the center of the circle and bring the sides up to pinch at the top, forming a taco shape. Gently fold the sides toward the middle forming pleats against the back side of the dough. Pinch each pleat down to seal. Place the finished dumpling on a floured baking sheet, and repeat, repeat, repeat. (At this point you could flash freeze some of the dumplings to save for later.)
Now place a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1-2 tablespoons oil to the skillet. Once it's hot quickly place the potstickers down into the skillet to sear. Brown the bottoms for approximately 2 minutes, then quickly flip the potstickers and add about 1/2 cup warm water to the skillet--enough water to come a third of the way up the side of the potstickers. Cover and let the dumplings steam for 2-3 minutes, until the water has evaporated. Repeat with the remaining dumplings.
Serve warm with soy dipping sauce.
