Mandu” or “mandoo” means dumpling in Korean. These dumplings are stuffed with a mixture of meat and/or vegetables which can then be deep-fried, boiled, pan-fried, steamed, or baked in the oven. There are so many different variations of mandu in Korea. The possibilities of the stuffing are truly endless. We even have several different variations of mandu recipes on our own site. It is so fun to play around with different meat and vegetable combinations for the filling.

 

This recipe is a bit more unique than most Korean dumpling recipes you will find out there. We are actually using pork rib meat for the meat base of these dumplings. With a more traditional Korean dumpling (mandu) recipe, many people use simple ground pork as the meat base for the filling. Using pork rib meat is a bit more time consuming due to removing the meat off the bones, however, it results in a melt-in-your-mouth dumpling. If you are looking for a more traditional mandu recipe, make sure to check out our other recipe – Fried Korean Dumplings (Yaki Mandu).

How to make our Korean dumplings

Step 1: Prep the pork rib meat

Prepare the pork rib meat. Ensure the pork rib meat is taken off the bone and ground at home with a meat grinder, or finely chop it by hand. You want it as close to ground pork as possible.

 

Step 2: Make the filling mixture

Mix all of the filling ingredients well together.

 

Step 3: Wrap the dumplings

Now, it’s time to wrap these dumplings. Put about a teaspoon of the meat filling into a wonton wrapper. Close each wrapper with a bit of water on the edges to help seal it.

 

Step 4: Get the steamer ready

Now it’s time to bring water to a boil in the bottom of a steamer pot. While you’re waiting for the steamer to come to a boil, prepare the steamer rack to place the dumplings in. Spray a little bit of oil on the bottom of your steamer pan so they don’t stick to the bottom. Or you could also line the steamer pan with a few layers of clean, damp cheesecloth or napa cabbage leaves to prevent the mandu from sticking to the bottom. 

 

Step 5: Steam the dumplings

Once the water starts boiling, place a single layer of mandu, and turn the heat down to medium-high heat. Place the steamer rack inside the steamer pot. Allow the dumplings to steam for 20 minutes until the filling is well-done.

 

Step 6: Continue until all dumplings are steamed and enjoy!

Continue steaming dumplings until all of the dumplings are steamed. Don’t forget to make our sauce recipe. It goes perfectly with these steamed dumplings (mandu). Enjoy!
