Fried Pork Dumplings
- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 pound ground pork
- 1 slice bacon, finely chopped
- 1/2 cup finely chopped napa cabbage
- 1/2 cup minced fresh chives (about 2 small bunches)
- 1 1/2 teaspoons finely grated peeled ginger
- 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
- Kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon sugar
- 1 clove garlic, finely grated
- 1/2 teaspoon soy sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
- 36 round dumpling wrappers, thawed if frozen
- 6 tablespoons vegetable oil
Lightly beat the remaining egg in a small bowl with 1 tablespoon water. Set 1 dumpling wrapper on a clean surface (keep the rest covered with a damp paper towel so they don't dry out). Scoop 1 heaping teaspoonful of the pork mixture onto the center of the wrapper. Dab a finger into the egg mixture and brush along the edges of the wrapper. Fold the wrapper in half and press the edges together to seal, then transfer to a baking sheet. Cover with a damp paper towel while you form the remaining dumplings.
Heat 2 tablespoons vegetable oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Working in 3 batches, add the dumplings and arrange in a single layer; cook until the bottoms start to brown, about 30 seconds. Add 2/3 cup water, cover and cook 3 minutes. Uncover and cook until the liquid evaporates and the bottoms are crisp and golden brown, about 2 more minutes. Loosen the dumplings from the pan with a spatula and transfer to a serving plate. Add 2 more tablespoons oil to the pan between batches.
