Cooking Preparation of the Recipe:

1 ts Salt
1 1/2 tb Peanut oil
6 oz Ground pork butt
1/4 c Finely diced bamboo shoots
1/4 c Finely diced water
-chestnuts, preferably fresh
2 Green onions, chopped
2 ts Sugar

2 ts Cornstarch
2 tb Chicken stock
2 tb Coarsely chopped fresh

These dumplings make great finger food for a cocktail party. They can be
prepared entirely in advance and reheated a few minutes before serving. The
wheat starch wrappers have an interesting chewy texture, a unique
translucent appearance and are absorbent of flavors. Roll out the wrappers
as thin as possible; otherwise they come out rubbery.

Wheat Starch Wrappers (see recipe) Vegetable oil Light soy sauce, for
dipping Chinese mustard, for dipping

Cover mushrooms in warm water for 20 minutes or until soft and pliable.
Remove and squeeze out excess water from the mushrooms. Cut off the stems
at the base and discard them. Finely mince the caps.

Toss the shrimp with salt and let them stand 10 minutes. Rinse well with
cold water, pat dry thoroughly. Coarsely mince.

Preheat a wok or skillet. when hot, add the peanut oil. over medium- high
heat, add the mushrooms, shrimps, pork butt, bamboo shoots, water
chestnuts, and half the green onions; stir-fry until the pork turns white.
Season with the sugar, white pepper, wine and soy sauce. Combine the
cornstarch and chicken stock in a small bowl and mix until smooth; pour
into wok. Stir fry for 1 minute longer. Remove the mixture to a shallow
plate and mix in the remaining green onion and coriander. Allow the filling
to cool, then refrigerate it until needed.

Makes almost 2 cups of filling.

Prepare the Wheat Starch Wrapper dough. Pinch off 1-inch balls of dough.
Lightly oil the ball and flatten it into a thin 3 1/2-inch circle. An oiled
Chinese cleaver is traditionally used; however, a tortilla press or a
rolling pin works. Put 1 large teaspoon of filling in the center of the
circle. Fold it in half and pinch the edges to seal the filling inside.
Repeat with remaining dough and filling.

Place dumplings without touching each other on a lightly oiled bamboo
steamer (or a heat resistant plate). Steam over boiling water for 3
minutes. Serve hot, dipped in light soy sauce and Chinese mustard. Serve
with Chinese Mustard, for dipping.

Makes 2 1/2 dozen dumplings.
