Steamed Pork and Shrimp Dumplings Recipe

Steamed Pork and Shrimp Dumplings Recipe

“These delicious dumplings are perfect finger food. Pick them up by the stem, dunk them in dipping sauce and enjoy! We often serve them when family and friends come over for a movie night or as part of a dim sum dinner.” —Steve Niederloh, Champlin, Minnesota
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 40 min. Cook: 10 min./batch YIELD:52 servings
