Beijing Style Dumplings recipe – Filled with a savory mixture of minced pork, fresh vegetables, and aromatic seasonings, each bite offers a burst of authentic Beijing flavors.


  • 250g ground pork
  • 1 cup finely chopped cabbage
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 30 round dumpling wrappers
  • Water, for sealing dumplings
  • Vegetable oil, for frying (optional)
  • Soy sauce, vinegar, and chili oil, for dipping


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground pork, chopped cabbage, green onions, minced garlic, soy sauce, sesame oil, grated ginger, black pepper, and salt. Mix well until thoroughly combined.
  2. To assemble the dumplings, place a small spoonful of the pork filling in the center of a dumpling wrapper. Dip your finger in water and moisten the edges of the wrapper.
  3. Fold the wrapper in half to enclose the filling, pressing the edges together to seal. You can crimp the edges decoratively if desired.
  4. Repeat with the remaining wrappers and filling until all the dumplings are assembled.
  5. To cook the dumplings, you can boil them in a pot of water for 6-8 minutes until they float to the surface and are cooked through. Alternatively, you can steam them for 10-12 minutes or pan-fry them for a crispy texture.
  6. If pan-frying, heat some vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat. Place the dumplings in the skillet in a single layer and cook until golden brown on the bottom, about 2-3 minutes.
  7. Add water to the skillet, cover, and cook for an additional 5-6 minutes until the dumplings are cooked through and the water has evaporated.
  8. Serve the Beijing Style Dumplings hot with dipping sauce made from soy sauce, vinegar, and chili oil on the side.
  9. Enjoy the authentic flavors of Beijing with these irresistible dumplings that are sure to tantalize your taste buds and transport you to the bustling streets of China’s capital city.
