Gather the ingredients.
To prepare this pork and veggie pan-seared dumplings you will need ground pork, garlic, sesame oil, soy sauce, honey, ginger, vegetable oil, bok choy, carrots, green onions and wonton wrappers. You'll also need a large skillet or a wok for cooking the dumplings. Now let's get to work!
Make the pork and veggie filling.
Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet or wok. Add garlic and ginger, then stir fry the ground pork until it is cooked through. Add soy sauce, honey and sesame oil, stirring to combine. Finally add the vegetables - bok choy, carrots and green onions - mixing them into the pork mixture. Cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Turn off heat and let the filling cool slightly before using it to fill the wonton wrappers.
Assemble and seal the dumplings.
To assemble the dumplings, place a teaspoon of the filling in the center of the wonton wrapper. Lightly wet the edges with water and fold wrapper over to make a half-moon shape. Gently press down to seal edges, ensuring there are no gaps where filling can escape. Then pleat or use a crimper along one edge for extra secure sealing. Repeat this process with remaining wrappers and transfer to lined baking tray. Finally, brush the assembled dumplings with oil before they are ready to be cooked!
Heat a pan and coat with oil.
Heat a pan over medium to high heat and coat the bottom with oil. Once the oil is hot and shimmering, carefully place dumplings into the pan in an even layer. Allow the dumplings to sear for about 2 minutes before flipping them over and searing for another 1-2 minutes on the other side. Once both sides are golden brown, remove from heat and enjoy!
Brown the sealed dumplings in the pan.
Carefully place the sealed dumplings into the pan in an even layer. Allow them to sear for about 2 minutes before flipping them over and searing for another 1-2 minutes on the other side. You'll know when they're finished when both sides are golden brown. Once done, remove from heat to serve and enjoy!
