How to serve Pork Dumplings

I am such of fan of fried pork dumplings and chilli oil. They are super simple to make and serve. Some of you may also like to add some gluten free soy sauce or coconut aminos to dip your dumplings into.

Enjoy them on their own fresh from the steamer or frying pan or add them to a salad for a delicious keto lunch box meal.

Tips for Success and FAQs

If you don’t like pork make keto chicken dumplings, beef, turkey or whatever ground meat dumpling you prefer.

Any cabbage or kale can be used. Alternatively use any grated vegetable, mushrooms or all meat, if preferred.

You will need the Mad Creations Soft Wraps Mix to make these.

I use a dumpling cutter and press to make mine easily at home.

You can steam with metal steamer, microwave steamer, bamboo steamer, or Thermomix.

These can also be air fried or deep fried for a super crispy wrapper.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup kale sliced thinly alternatively use cabbage
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 300 g pork mince
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp ginger finely grated
  • 1 spring onion finely sliced
  • 1 tbsp coconut aminos
  • 1/2 tsp white pepper
  • 1 batch Keto Tortillas prepare up to dough stage.

Instructions

CONVENTIONAL METHOD

  • Prepare the Soft Wrap mix as per pack instructions or use our Keto Tortilla recipe (link in ingredients). Prepare to dough stage.
  • Divide dough into 4 equal balls to make it easier to work with. Between 2 sheets of baking paper roll out one ball of dough to approximately 1 mm thickness. Using a small plate or large egg ring cut keto wontons (approx 10 cm diameter). Repeat with all the dough until you have 30 rounds. Cover and reserve.
  • Place sliced kale into a large bowl and sprinkle with salt. Leave for 20 minutes. The salting draws out any excess water in the kale. Rinse and squeeze out afterwards (seems ironic but it works) and return to bowl.
  • Add all remaining dumpling ingredients to the kale and mix to combine. I use my hands and mash it all together until sticky and combined.
  • Spoon one teaspoon of filling into centre of each wrapper. Use a small dumpling press to enclose filling. Alternatively, fold the wrapper over to enclose pinching edge to form little half-moons. Set aside and repeat.
  • Half fill a large saucepan with water and bring to a boil. Add dumplings to a steamer basket careful to leave room between each so they do not stick to one another. Steam dumplings for 15-20 minutes or until cooked through. Serve with dipping sauce.
  • To make pot stickers; add some oil to a large skillet and fry dumplings until lightly golden on both sides.

THERMAL METHOD

  • FOLLOW steps 1-3 above.
  • Add all filling ingredients to mixer (including kale); mix 60 sec/speed 3.
  • Spoon one teaspoon of filling into centre of each wrapper. Use a small dumpling press to enclose filling. Alternatively, fold the wrapper over to enclose pinching edge to form little half-moons. Set aside and repeat.
  • Add 1 litre of water to mixer. Put the lid on and top with steamer basket
  • Transfer dumplings to steamer basket and into the tray careful to leave room between each, so they do not stick to one another. Steam dumplings for 20 min/120°C/speed 3. Serve with dipping sauce.
  • To make pot stickers; add some oil to a large skillet and fry dumplings until lightly golden on both sides.

Notes

INGREDIENTS
Mad Creations Soft Wrap Mix can be used in place of the Tortilla recipe. This is a tortilla mix I created for Keto Eats Australia. Slightly different to our Tortilla recipe but works a treat for dumplings too.
Use ground chicken, pork, or beef. Seafood and vegetables also work in low carb dumplings.
HOT TIPS
Steaming is used to cook the ground pork n the inside. You can skip this and fry the pot stickers with a lid on the pan if you prefer. This will trap the heat and help to speed up the cooking process. 
The keto dumpling wrappers are not suited to cooking in water so do not try and blanch or boil the pork dumplings.
STORING LOW CARB DUMPLINGS
Fridge – store uncooked prepared dumplings for up to 2 days in the fridge. If they have been cooked store up to 4 days.
Freezer – freeze in an airtight container or bag raw or cooked. Defrost in the fridge overnight.
Reheating – If already cooked, reheat by frying in a large skillet.

    1. Hi Sonya, they can be frozen before or after but I would recommend before then it just makes it easy when you want to have them as you can just steam to cook and heat.
