Instant Chinese Dumplings

In this video Nina Simonds shows you a Quick Method to make Instant Chinese Dumplings.

First Step: Buy frozen dumplings! Nina likes wei-chuan vegetable, pork and leek dumplings because she lived with the family when she lived in Taiwan.

Add Virgin Olive Oil to a nonstick pan and preheat it.

Arrange frozen dumplings in the pan, flat side down.

Don’t be afraid of high heat. Adjust the heat by moving the pan off the burner.

Once the dumplings are golden brown, add 3/4 cup water and cover.

Cook for 4-5 minutes to cook completely through until the skin is translucent.

After the water evaporates, remove lid and pan sear the bottom. Make sure they don’t stick by lifting them with a spatula.

Finally, take a plate. put on top of dumpling and invert them. Voila!
