Bring a classic Chinese dish to your table with this easy and delicious zhong dumpling recipe! With just a few simple ingredients, you can create a restaurant-worthy meal in no time.

Gather the ingredients.

To make zhong dumplings, you will need 250g of pork mince, 250ml of chicken broth, 6 cloves of garlic, 1 tablespoon of soy sauce, 1 teaspoon of sugar, 1 teaspoon of cornflour and 20 wonton wrappers. You can find all these ingredients at your local grocery store.

Prepare the zhong dumpling dough.

Prepare the zhong dumpling dough by mixing together the chicken broth, garlic, soy sauce, sugar and cornflour. Once it is mixed together, roll out strips of the dough and use them to create square-shaped wonton wrappers. You can also buy ready-made store-bought wrappers if you'd like to save some time!

Fill the dumplings with your favorite filling.

When it comes to filling the dumplings, the options are endless! For this recipe, we opted for a combination of minced pork, cabbage and celery. Alternatively, you could also use minced beef or vegetables like mushrooms or carrots. For best results, ensure that the filling is not too wet as this will make it more difficult to seal. Add some seasoning with salt and pepper to bring out all the flavors!

Boiling, steaming or pan-frying your zhong dumplings.

You can get creative when it comes to cooking your zhong dumplings. Our favorite method is boiling, as the traditional approach, which ensures that the outer wraps are cooked through and the insides remain juicy and fragrant. Alternatively, you can steam zhong dumplings for an equally delicious treat or even pan-fry them for that extra crispy texture. No matter which method you choose, make sure to keep an eye on your pot or skillet so that you don’t end up with burned dumplings!

Serve and enjoy!

Once the dumplings are cooked to your liking, serve them hot and enjoy! We love pairing zhong dumplings with Chinese BBQ pork, steamed vegetables, or chili oil for a complete meal. You can even add a side of soy sauce or black vinegar for dipping. Experiment with different accompanying dishes and seasonings until you find the perfect combination - we guarantee that you won’t be disappointed!
