Chinese Recipe : Boiled Pot Stickers

Ingredients:

Filling:

  • 8 oz. regular or firm tofu
  • 2 tbsp. Black mushrooms, presoaked, or Shiitake mushrooms, minced
  • 2 tbsp. Tree Ears, presoaked and minced
  • 1 tbsp. dried lily buds, presoaked, and minced
  • 1 tbsp. scallion, minced
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 1/4 tsp. soy sauce
  • 2 1/4 tsp. sesame oil
Wrappers:
  • 1 c. flour
  • 1/4 c. water

Dipping Sauce:

  • soy sauce
  • vinegar
  • mushroom soaking liquid or water
  • sesame oil, optional
  • chili oil, optional

Directions:

  1. Mash the tofu to yield about 3/4 c.
  2. To make the filling, combine mashed tofu with the minced ingredients, salt, soy sauce, and sesame oil.
  3. To make the wrappers, mix flour and water by hand, kneading just enough to make a ball of dough. Cover, and let rest for at least 1 hr.
  4. Place on a lightly floured board, and knead for 2 mins. or so. With palms of your hands, roll it into a long, cylindrical shape, 12" long, 1" in diameter.
  5. Cut crosswise into 1/2" pieces. You will have 24. If your climate is dry, keep the dough covered.
  6. Shape these, cut-side up, into a round shape.
  7. Flatten them with the palm or heel of your hand on a flour-dusted board.
  8. With a pastry roller, small rolling pin, piece of dowel, or even an empty jar. All of these should be wielded under the palm of your hand.
  9. Roll each into a round wrapper, 3" in diameter, thicker in the center, thinner toward the edge. This is easily done by rolling the pastry roller from the edge of the piece of dough to the center, and back again, turning the dough counterclockwise a little with your left hand after each roll.
  10. Continue all the way around several times, also turning the dough over once or twice, until you have a thin, 3" wrapper.
  11. To assemble, place 1 1/2 tsp. filling (or as much as the wrapper will hold) in an elongated mound in the center of each wrapper.
  12. Fold the dough over the filling so that the edges meet. Press the edges together for a tight seal, at the same time making 4-5 tiny pleats, pinched tightly flush with the edge. Be sure that it is completely sealed to keep the water out, and the filling in. (With commercial wrappers, it may be necessary to moisten half of the inside edge first to get a seal.)
  13. Bring 4 c. water to the boil in a pot. Immerse 8 dumplings at a time for 3 mins. (add an extra min., if frozen. Do not defrost them first). If they break open, add a little water to slow the boil whenever it becomes too rapid.
  14. Stir occasionally in case some of them stick to the bottom (true to their name).
  15. After 3 mins., remove the dumplings with a slotted spoon. Cook the remaining 2 batches in the same way.
Serve hot, accompanied by small dipping saucers of soy sauce and vinegar (cider or Chinese dark), mixed in roughly equal proportions, or to taste, and thinned with water or mushroom liquid if too strong. Add perhaps a drop of sesame and/or chile oil. Some people like to add a little crushed garlic, minced scallion, and/or gingerroot.

Advance preparation:
These can be assembled ahead and frozen. Do not defrost before cooking.
