PAOW! “Dumpling Day” Dumplings


12 oz PAOW!™ Pieces
5 teaspoons sesame oil
2 cups shredded carrots
2 cups shredded cabbage
8 oz. mushrooms, thinly sliced
4 green onions, thinly sliced
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 nub of ginger, minced
2 tablespoons soy sauce
Kosher salt
fresh cracked pepper
34 dumpling wrappers (in the produce department)
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup rice vinegar
1 teaspoon sesame oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
8 drops hot chili sesame oil
Kosher salt
fresh cracked pepper


  1. Heat sesame oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat.
  2. Add PAOW! Pieces, carrots, cabbage, and mushroom along with a large pinch of salt and pepper.
  3. Cook, stirring frequently, for 6-8 minutes or until the liquid from the veggies has been released and begins to evaporate.
  4. Add green onion, garlic, ginger, and soy sauce along with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  5. Cook for an additional minute. Then transfer the filling to a bowl and pop it in the fridge for about 10 minutes to cool completely.
  6. While the filling is cooling, combine dipping sauce ingredients and set aside.
  7. To assemble dumplings, wet the entire edge of the wrapper with water and add about a tablespoon of filling into the center of the wrapper.
  8. Fold the wrapper in half, creating a half-moon shape. Gently pat the bottom of the dumpling on the countertop to make sure it stands by itself.
  9. Continue with remaining filling until all 34 dumplings are complete.
  10. Heat 3 tablespoons olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat.
  11. Sauté dumplings in a batch of 7-8 depending on how large your pan is.
  12. Cook dumplings for 2 minutes or until a dark golden-brown crust forms on the bottom of the dumplings.
  13. Pour in ¼ cup of water, cover pan, and let the dumplings steam for 2-4 minutes or until the water has evaporated.
  14. Remove the lid and allow the dumplings to get crisp on the bottom again.
  15. Garnish with cilantro, green onion, and sesame seeds. Serve with dipping sauce and enjoy!
