Korean food is my most recent obsession, and I am only beginning to understand the flavors and ingredients. This may be just another excuse to head to the Korean restaurant down the street, but I am sticking to my story! One thing I have noticed is every Korean recipe I come across seems to be loaded with sesame flavor. These fried dumplings are no exception; they're packed with toasted sesame seeds and sesame oil.
Chopping everything is the longest part of the recipe.
Pork first, followed by the veggies.
No need to brown everything, just soften it up.
Filling and folding these dumplings is much easier than the last ones I made!
Sealed with an egg wash so that they don’t leak out while frying. Flip these after about a minute and a half. Total fry time should be around 3-4 minutes.
A little splash of soy sauce is all you need for these, but some sweet and sour would be nice as well.
