Ingredients
  • 1 lb (500g) ground (minced) beef
  • 1 teaspoon minced ginger
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped green (spring) onions
  • 4 cups (500g) finely chopped Napa cabbage
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • About 35 wonton wrappers
  • Water, as needed
Instructions
  1. Combine the ground beef with the cabbage, ginger, green onions and garlic in a bowl, mixing them together with your hands. Mix the sesame oil with the salt, pepper and soy sauce in another bowl, then combine the 2 mixtures.
  2. Add about a tablespoon of the beef mixture to the center of a wonton wrapper. Dip your fingertip in some water and trace the half-edge of the wonton wrapper, then fold it in half and crimp the edges closed with your fingers. Don’t put too much filling in, else the wontons will burst open!
  3. Steam the wontons for about 8 minutes or until the filling is cooked through. If you freeze them you will need to steam them for about 13 minutes.

Steamed wontons are always beautiful because the outside of the wonton wrapper is slick, glossy and white, and you can only guess what amazing flavors are inside. Serve steamed wontons with your favorite dipping sauce. Sweet chili sauce, plum sauce or even plain soy sauce would all work just fine, or you might like to try something a bit different like a creamy peanut sauce. A dipping sauce is not essential but it does go well with the steamed beef wontons. Serve them in the steamer for a nice authentic touch. You will need to line the steamer with lettuce leaves, cabbage leaves or perforated steamer papers so the wontons don’t stick. Try this beef wontons with cabbage and ginger recipe today and enjoy the amazing, mouthwatering result.
