Introduction

Korean dumplings, known as mandoo or mandu, are an easy-to-make traditional food that can be prepared in large quantities in advance and stored in the freezer for future use.

These little dumplings are stuffed with a mixture of meat and/or vegetables and can be deep-fried, boiled, pan-fried or baked in the oven. )This recipe is steamed or boiled.) There are almost as many variations of mandoo as there are cooks in Korea.

Mandoo is often prepared by families as part of Korean Lunar New Year festivities and is considered a symbol of good luck for the coming year.

Ingredients

    12 oz. (3/4 lb.) 90% Lean Ground Beef
    1 medium (2-1/2" dia) Onions, raw
    1 cup, chopped Cabbage, fresh
    0.5 cup Tofu, firm
    .5 cup soaked Bean Thread noodles (sai fun) 1/2 pkg makes 1 cup
    3 cloves garlic, chopped
    .5 tbsp toasted Sesame Seed Oil
    2 tbsp Soy sauce (shoyu), low sodium
    black pepper to taste
    16 NaSoya Won Ton Wrappers (120g)
    chopped fresh cilantro or green onions for garnish


Tips

-If you have extra dumpling wrappers, you can just cut them into slices and use them to make noodle soup.

-If you want to prepare a lot of dumplings in advance, steam the dumplings, wait for them to cool, and then freeze them on a parchment-lined tray. When fully frozen, transfer them to a zip-top bag for longer storage. You can then use them anytime straight from the freezer without defrosting.


Directions

Gather the ingredients.

In a large mixing bowl, gently combine ground beef, onion, cabbage, tofu, and noodles.

In a separate small bowl, combine garlic, sesame oil, soy sauce, and pepper.

Pour seasoning mixture over meat and vegetables and mix with hands to combine.

Place about 1 tablespoon of filling in the center of dumpling wrapper.

Dip your finger in water and wet the perimeter of half of the wrapper.

Fold the wrapper in half, pressing to seal and then crimp the edges.(Or use a dumpling press.) Repeat until the filling is gone.

Steam or boil until done. Garnish with chopped fresh cilantro or green onion.

Serve with basic dipping sauce or a spicy sauce like Thai sweet chili sauce, spicy garlic oil or Tabasco.

Serving Size: Four servings of four dumplings each.
