Ms. Sophia Chen, owner of the Tea Pot Restaurant in Cayce, shows us how she makes her traditional Chinese pork dumplings.
Take it from us, these dumplings are delicious! Ms. Chen will be bringing her dumplings and a few more delicious Chinese treats to this year’s Columbia International Food Festival. Go ahead and give them a try for yourself. When you fall in love, Ms. Chen was kind enough to share her recipe with us so you can make them yourself.
If you need these pork dumplings now, they are always available at the Tea Pot Restaurant in Cayce.
Mix 1 Lb. all purpose flour with one egg and 1/2 Cup water until a uniform dough consistency is reached.
1 Lb. Pork

1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1 Tablespoon Soy Sauce
1 Tablespoon Oyster Sauce

Ms. Chen also instructed us to make the individual dumpling wraps about the size of your palm and thicker in the center so that they will not tear when folded.
