When I found out I could no longer consume dairy, I faced a freezer full of dairy laden frozen meals. I made these tasty treats on Saturday night. They are from my Holly Clegg Freezer Friendly Meals cookbook (I modified them a bit)and are delicious!
They do take a bit of time to stuff, but I just watched Suze Orman Saturday night and I had them all stuffed in 30 minutes. Now I have a freezer full; I plan to eat these while my family finishes up the dairy loaded meals.
Pork Steamed Dumplings
2 lbs. ground pork
1/3 c. cornstarch
2 tbsp. minced fresh ginger
1 tsp. minced garlic
3 tbsp. reduced-sodium soy sauce
3 tbsp. sugar
2 tsp. sesame oil
1/2 c. chopped green onions
60-90 won ton wrappers (depending on how full you stuff them)
-Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.
-Place about 1 tsp of the pork mixture in the center of each won ton wrapper and gather up the corners, pinching them together at the top. Pat the edges with water to make them stick.
To prepare and eat now:
Bring a pot of water to a boil and arrange dumplings in steamer basket over the boiling water. Cover and steam about 20 to 25 minutes or until the pork mixture is entirely cooked.
Freeze for one hour on a cookie pan and then place in a Ziploc bag.
To prepare after freezing:
Bring a pot of water to boil and arrange dumplings directly from the freezer in the steam basket over the boiling water. Cover and steam about 25 to 28 minutes or until the pork mixture is entirely cooked.
