Spicy Pork In Claypot

This is Spicy Pork in Claypot, thinly sliced pork that’s cooked with lots of dried and fresh chilies. The meat is spicy, but the sweetness from the dark soy sauce balanced the dish’s overall flavor. Feel free to substitute the pork with lamb meat, if you like, as lamb works very well with this recipe too. Just add about ½ teaspoon of cumin seeds to lessen some of the strong taste or “smell” of lamb meat. I enjoyed this flavorful meat dish with just some steamed rice. Try it.

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
