If you are feeling lazy or you’re looking for an easy fix, buy frozen dumplings.
Nina likes Frozen Pork Dumplings from Trader Joe’s or she will buy some at her Chinese market.
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!
