These Chinese dumplings are filled with pork mince, green onions and fresh ginger before hitting the wok to be deep-fried to a crisp and golden brown. The satisfying experience doesn’t reach its peak until you dip it into our invigorating vinegar and light soy sauce concoction – a mixture that has come through for numerous other Chinese delicacies such as xiao long baos, spring rolls and more.


  • 450 g minced pork
  • ¼ cup finely chopped garlic chives
  • 3 green onions, chopped finely
  • 2 cm piece fresh ginger (10 g), grated coarsely
  • 1 tsp caster sugar
  • 2 tbsps light soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp Chinese cooking wine
  • 2 tsps sesame oil
  • 24 gow gee wrappers
  • 1 green onion (scallion), sliced thinly
  • Peanut oil, for deep-frying


  • 2 tbsps light soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar

Combine pork, chives, onion, ginger, sugar, sauce, cooking wine and sesame oil in a large bowl. Place 1 level tbsp of filling in the centre of each wrapper. Moisten the edge of the wrappers with a little water; press and pleat edges together to seal.
