Pork Dumplings

Oyster sauce and sesame oil give this traditional dumpling its rich flavor.


  • 1/4 pound finely shredded Napa cabbage (about 2 cups)
  • 1 egg white, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons oyster sauce
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 1/4 cup finely minced scallions
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 pound ground pork
  • 24 round dumpling wrappers or wonton skins


  1. Bring a small pot of water to a boil. Add the cabbage and blanch it for 1 minute. Drain the cabbage, rinse it immediately with cold water, then drain it again. Over a sink or bowl, squeeze small handfuls of the cabbage to release as much water as possible, then wrap it in two layers of paper towels and squeeze again. Wrap and squeeze the cabbage one more time, then set it aside.
  2. Whisk together the egg white, soy sauce, oyster sauce, sesame oil, cornstarch, sugar, salt, and pepper in a medium-size bowl. Stir in the cabbage, scallions, ginger, and garlic. Add the pork and stir the filling until it's thoroughly combined.
  3. Follow the directions for stuffing the dumplings and cooking them. Makes two dozen.
