Ingredients:

1 pound ground pork
2 bunches green onions, divided and sliced
1 Tablespoon ginger root, peeled and minced
1 clove garlic, peeled and minced
¼ teaspoon sesame oil
25 square wonton wrappers
1 egg, beaten
extra-virgin olive oil as needed
½ cup Ponzi soy sauce
1 Tablespoon rice wine vinegar
1 teaspoon brown sugar
water as needed

Method:

Mix together the pork, half of the green onion, ginger, garlic and sesame oil together in a large bowl.
Lay 5 of the wonton wrapper out on a cutting board, and fill the center of each square with 1 teaspoon of pork filling.

Dip your index finger in the egg wash, and wet the edges of the wonton.

Fold the wonton corner to corner and press to seal. Repeat for the remaining wonton wrappers.

Heat a large skillet to medium heat. Add in enough extra-virgin olive oil to lightly coat the bottom of the pan.

In two batches, sear the dumplings on each side for about 1-minute. Then, add enough water to the pan so that it rises half way up the sides of the dumplings.

Cover with a lid and steam for 3-minutes. Repeat for the remaining dumplings.

For the sauce: whisk together the ponzu soy sauce, remaining green onions, rice wine vinegar, and brown sugar.
