Virtual Cooking Class: Advanced Dumpling Skills – Pan Fried Pork Soup Dumplings

Get Cooking

Join our dumpling expert and Masterchef alumna Mai Nguyen, owner of Gourmai Dumplings, for her virtual cooking class on how to make Sheng Jian Bao pan fried pork soup dumplings (not to be confused with Shanghai soup dumplings).  During your online cooking class Mai will take you through making the wrappers and the filling then stuffing, folding, pan frying and serving your dumplings, sprinkled with green onions and sesame seeds, together with a dipping sauce. Sheng Jian Bao wrappers are made with a yeast dough, so to allow for rising time we’ll take a 30 minute break once our dough is made, then come back to make and cook our dumplings.

Ingredients for Sheng Jian Bao (Pan Fried Soup Dumplings): Bao Dough (all purpose flour, active dry yeast, sugar), Pork Filling (ground pork, ginger, garlic, green onions, soy sauce, rice wine (optional), sesame oil, water or chicken/veg stock).

* We’ll be discussing potential substitutions for ingredients during your class.
