Dim Sum

I have had a craving for several foods lately - no I'm not preggers, too late for that anymore - among them dim sum/pot stickers. So, after a hard morning's work outside, I just couldn't resist even though I knew it would take several hours of more work. Pork and dough recipe from Ming's Blue Ginger cookbook and turkey is a riff of a Wolfgang Puck seafood dim sum recipe.

Turkey, corn, orange bell pepper, garlic, cilantro, soy sauce, egg, napa cabbage filling



shaped dim sum



pork, napa cabbage, ginger, sesame oil, soy sauce filling



pork-filled shaped and ready to go



Cooking both



Plated and ready to eat with 2 dipping sauces, spicy sesame oil and ginger, though only 1 is shown since the spicy sesame is my fave.

They were yummy, got too full last night to finish the last few of mine so I had a pre-breakfast snack..... and there's enough for another meal in the freezer, made 4 dozen last night between the 2 batches.

I guess it's time to get the extra table out and go into production mode.
Today I'm making ettouffe', but that Dim Sum is calling me.

I especially like the idea of having a couple of meals worth in the freezer.

Just a tip, I make my little dough balls then use the tortilla press. I still have to use the rolling pin to get the dough as thin as I like it but using the press is a HUGE time saver.

Wow! They look great. I too like to have extra in the freezer and have done it with eggs rolls and such. I will have to try these out one weekend.

spicy sesame - soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, sambal olek, green onions.

ginger - soy sauce, chinese black vinegar, minced ginger, garlic, touch of sugar, red pepper flakes, green onions.

Craig loves them too though I don't think even as hungry as he was last night that he could've downed them all. LOL

I just wish they didn't take so long to make, we'd have them a lot more often.
