Sing Kee’s Favorite Cooking Method

Prepare the Pork Filling

In a bowl, combine the minced pork, soy sauce, sesame oil, chopped ginger, minced garlic, and spring onions. Then, mix the ingredients thoroughly until well combined, ensuring a uniform distribution of flavours.

Assemble the Wontons

Lay out the wonton wrappers on a clean surface. Then, spoon a small amount of the pork filling onto the centre of each wrapper. Following this, make sure to moisten the edges of the wrapper with water and fold it over to create a triangle, sealing the edges carefully.

Fold the Wontons

Bring the two opposite corners of the triangle together, sealing them with a dab of water. Ensure the wontons are securely sealed to prevent any filling from escaping during steaming.

Steam the Wontons

Place the assembled wontons in a steamer, ensuring they are not too close to each other to avoid sticking. Make sure to steam for approximately 10-12 minutes or until the pork filling is cooked through.

Serve and Enjoy

Prepare a dipping sauce using soy sauce, a splash of vinegar, and chopped chillies and serve the steamed pork wontons hot, garnished with chopped spring onions or sesame seeds.

Presentation tips

For an aesthetically pleasing and appetizing presentation, consider serving the steamed pork wontons on a vibrant platter. Arrange them neatly with a small bowl of dipping sauce in the centre. Then, Sprinkle chopped spring onions or sesame seeds on top for a visually appealing touch. This not only enhances the overall dining experience but also adds a burst of freshness to each bite.
