Southern Living MARCH 2007

  • Yield: Makes 5 servings (serving size: 3 dumplings and 1 cup broth mixture)
  • Cook time:20 Minutes
  • Prep time:30 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound lean ground pork
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 3 tablespoons hoisin sauce, divided
  • 15 won ton wrappers
  • 3 (14-oz.) cans low-sodium fat-free chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onions
  • Garnish: cilantro sprigs

Preparation

1. Brown pork with ginger in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, stirring often, 5 minutes or until meat crumbles and is no longer pink.

2. Combine pork mixture, cilantro, and 2 Tbsp. hoisin sauce in a medium bowl.

3. Arrange 1 won ton wrapper on a clean, flat surface. (Cover remaining wrappers with a damp towel to prevent drying out.) Moisten edges of wrapper with water. Spoon about 1 Tbsp. pork mixture in center of wrapper; fold 2 opposite corners together over pork mixture, forming a triangle. Press edges together to seal. Cover with a damp cloth. Repeat procedure with remaining wrappers and pork mixture.

4. Bring broth and remaining 1 Tbsp. hoisin sauce to a light boil in a Dutch oven over medium heat; gently stir in 8 dumplings. Cook 4 to 5 minutes or until dumplings float to top. Place dumplings in 5 individual serving bowls. Repeat procedure with remaining 7 dumplings.

5. Add mushrooms and onions to simmering broth; cook 1 minute. Ladle 1 cup broth mixture over dumplings in bowls. Garnish, if desired. Serve immediately.

Note: To freeze dumplings, assemble as directed, and place in a single layer in a large zip-top plastic freezer bag. Freeze up to 3 months. Cook as directed.
