Recipe's preparation

  1. NOTE: You will get approximately 30 dumplings from this recipe.  You do not have to use all of the dumplings - you can freeze some for another time.


    Place coriander, garlic and ginger into TM bowl and chop for 5 seconds on speed 5.  Scrape down the sides of bowl and repeat once.  Add mince and soy sauce to the TM bowl and blend for 8 sec/speed 8 or until mixture is smooth and blended together. Lay gow gee wrappers out on a flat surface and place a teaspoon of mince mixture on each wrapper. Wet the edges of the wrapper with your finger and pinch together to seal and form dumplings.


    Lightly grease both the varoma dish and tray and arrange dumplings evenly so there is room in between each dumpling to allow steam to get through.  You may freeze leftover dumplings by laying on a piece of baking paper in a container in the freezer and use as needed.


    Pour stock (or water and stock paste if using) into TM bowl and add fish sauce, soy sauce, sugar, garlic and ginger.  Place TM lid and varoma into position and steam 15 min/Varoma/speed 2 or until dumplings are cooked through.


    Meanwhile, prepare your vegetables by washing and cutting and place them into a thermoserver.  When the broth has finished cooking, taste to see if extra fish sauce/soy sauce/sugar is needed and adjust accordingly.  If you find it too salty for your taste, the broth can be watered down with some boiling water.  Pour the hot broth into the thermoserver on top of the prepared vegetables. Cover with lid and leave for a few minutes until veggies soften. 


    Add cooked dumplings to serving bowls and pour the broth over the top. 


    Garnish with sliced spring onions, fresh chilli and coriander.


The dumplings are equally as delicious with chicken or beef mince - I have used a mix of beef and pork mince before and they were divine tmrc_emoticons.)

If you have dried shiitake mushrooms, blitz a handful in the bowl first and then start with step 1.  The shittakes add a lovely flavour to the dumplings.

    Recipe is created for
    TM 5
    If you are using a Thermomix® TM6 measuring cup with your Thermomix® TM5:
    For cooking (simmering) at temperatures of 95°C or above (200°F), the simmering basket should always be used instead of the TM6 measuring cup, as the TM6 measuring cup fits tightly in the lid. The simmering basket rests loosely on top, is steam-permeable, and also prevents food spatter from the mixing bowl.
    Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Pork Dumplings with Asian Broth Soup

    Great recipe! Added cabbage and very thinly sliced carrots. I cheated and used frozen dumplings. Delicious. Thank you!

    So yummy thank you
    I used 2 packets of wonton wrappers and there was a perfect amount of filling. (I used a little dumpling gadget to make them )
    Changes i made were no mushrooms, added snow peas, bean shoots finely julienned carrots and sliced water chestnuts.

    I did add boiling water at the end as well as it was quite salty

    Lovely. Very easy to make and will be doing them again. I also would suggest having two packets of won ton wrappers as I have pork mixture left over.

    Made this dish and it was lovely ! Will defenitly make again. I made it for 2 fussy teenagers aswell and they both loved it! I made my own beef stock during the day so had lovely flavoured stock.

    I put chilli sauce , dried shallots and more corriander on top of the dish too.

    Wow this was amazing thanks!! I did add 200ml extra hot water and cooked 2 packets of instant noodles to bulk up a bit for the hungry kids. I never would have attempted a dish like this if it weren't for my thermie!
