INGREDIENTS
Serves: 48

1 lb (95% lean) ground beef
1 tablespoon dark sesame oil
3 cups coarsely chopped broccoli slaw
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
1/4 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
48 wonton wrappers (3 1/4 – 3 1/2 inch squares)
Asian dipping sauce – suggestions: teriyaki, peanut or sweet and sour
Green onions, cut length wise into strips (optional)

DIRECTIONS

  1. Heat sesame oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add broccoli slaw, garlic and ginger; stir-fry 5 to 7 minutes or until slaw is crisp-tender. Transfer to large bowl; cool to room temperature. Add ground beef and soy sauce; mix lightly but thoroughly.
  2. Spoon 1 tablespoon beef mixture in center of 1 wonton wrapper (keep remaining wonton wrappers covered with a clean, damp kitchen towel to prevent from drying out). Moisten edges of wonton wrapper with water. Bring 4 corners of wrapper up and over filling, forming pyramid shape and pinching edges together to seal. Place on baking sheet lined with parchment or waxed paper. Repeat with remaining wonton wrapper and filling to form 48 dumplings.
  3. Spray steamer basket with non-stick cooking spray. Place as many dumplings into steamer basket that will fit without touching each other, about 10 to 12. Place basket over 1 inch boiling water (water should not touch bottom of basket). Cover tightly; reduce heat. Steam 6 to 7 minutes. Carefully remove dumplings to serve plate; keep warm. Repeat with remaining dumplings.
  4. Serve with dipping sauce. Garnish with green onion strips, if desired.
