Steamed Pork Dumplings - Cultural Connection

It's the third Saturday and time for my Cultural Connections post over at Our Krazy Kitchen . Today I am doing steamed dumplings, so I hope you can join me over there and check it out!
My friend is starting a series "Meet The Bloggers" I am her first guest being interviewed on Robyn's Nest if you would like to get to know me a little better you could visit there as well.


INGREDIENTS
100 (3.5 inch square) wonton wrappers
1 lb ground pork
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger root
1 teaspoon grated lemongrass
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons thinly sliced green onion
4 tablespoons soy sauce
3 tablespoons sesame oil
1 egg, beaten
1 cup finely shredded Chinese cabbage (I used less)

..DIRECTIONS
1.In a large bowl, combine the pork, ginger, garlic, green onion, soy sauce, sesame oil, egg and cabbage. Stir until well mixed.
2.Place 1 heaping teaspoon of pork filling onto each wonton skin. Moisten edges with water and fold edges over to form a triangle shape. Roll edges slightly to seal in filling*. Set dumplings aside on a lightly floured surface until ready to cook.
3.To Cook: Steam dumplings in a covered bamboo or metal steamer for about 15 to 20 minutes. Serve immediately. These also freeze well and you can heat them in a pan to make potstickers
