I made this for my husbands 40th birthday cocktail party and it was the hit of the party. I used used one pkg of ground pork vs. the pork loin and the pork sausage. I'm making them again for my friends NYE party. Also such a great make ahead recipe. I made 200 in one afternoon and still have some in bags in my freezer to use for any last minute guests.
Make-Ahead Pork Dumplings
This recipe makes a bunch, so ask a friend to help you assemble the dumplings; then freeze some for later.
