Pork and Chive Dumplings w/ Sesame Soy Dipping Sauce

Boy was I impressed with this Sur La Table’s cooking class! My husband gifted me a “Chinese Cooking 101” class for Christmas which I attended this past January and I was floored by how simple making these delicious dumplings was. Also, the fact that I could make a large amount and freeze for later was even more exciting. I just needed to share this recipe with you!

And of course, I highly recommend you take their cooking classes! I am sure going to sign up for more!

    Notes

    This is the best layout to first freeze the dumplings for later. Once frozen, place them in a freezer bag. They will stay fresh for approximately 1 month.
