Directions

For the filling: In a large bowl, combine the pork, ginger, rice wine, soy sauce, cornstarch, sesame oil, mushrooms and scallions. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and mix well.

For the dumplings: Take 1 wonton wrapper and place 1 heaping teaspoon of the filling in the center. Then gather up the sides of the wonton wrapper and mold around the filling into a ball shape, leaving the center exposed. Dip your finger in some water and run it around the top of the wonton wrapper. Fold the excess wrapper down and pinch the wonton wrapper around the filling firmly to prevent it from opening up and separating from the filling when cooked. Top each dumpling with a goji berry.

Oil the bottom of a bamboo steamer and/or line it with a piece of perforated parchment paper. Place the dumplings in the steamer, cover with a lid and place over a pan or wok of boiling water (making sure the water does not touch the bottom of the steamer). Steam the dumplings until cooked, 7 to 8 minutes.

For the dipping sauce: Meanwhile, combine the chili and soy sauces in a bowl. Serve with the dumplings.

    Really tasty, I didn't have the ingredients for the sauce so I used 1/4 cup soy sauce, 1/4 cup rice vinegar, 1 teaspoon sesame oil, and 1 tablespoon finely chopped green onions. Worked great!

    Absolutely amazing! I have made these many times for many dinner parties and they disappear instantly. So easy and quick because you can make ahead and store them in the fridge then steam them for 10 mins once guests arrive.

    These were great! I had a little trouble getting them to shape right and stay together but this was my first try. I'm sure I will have an easier time next time. They were actually easy to make. I am going to freeze the left overs. I believe they freeze fine because pot stickers. My 5 year old granddaughter was my sous chef and we had a lot of fun. I made a dipping sauce out of soy sauce and honey for her because she has a little trouble with too much spice.
