½ pound napa (Chinese) cabbage
¾ teaspoons salt
8 ounces beef chuck
minced or ground
¾ cups scallions, spring or green onions
1 each garlic cloves
1 tablespoon soy sauce, tamari
2 teaspoons sesame seeds
toasted, slightly crushed
2 teaspoons sesame oil
¼ teaspoon black pepper
40 each wonton wrappers


Sprinkle the cabbage leaves with ½ teaspoon salt and let stand about 15 minutes until they wilt. Squeeze out any moisture, then rinse and dry the leaves. Chop the cabbage.

In a bowl combine the cabbage, beef, scallions, garlic, soy sauce, sesame seeds, sesame oil, pepper and ¼ teaspoon salt and mix thoroughly.

To make each dumpling, place 1½ teaspoonful filling in the center of a wrapper using two spoons. Fold the wonton wrapper in half to form a semi-circle (if using round wrappers) or a triangle (if using square wrappers). Seal the edges by moistening them with a little water and pinching them. You may freeze the dumplings at this point on a cookie sheet or continue to use them by frying, steaming or in a soup.

To Fry: Heat oil in a wok or frying pan to 360 degrees. Fry about 10 at a time for 3 minutes or until golden.

To Steam: Arrange on lightly oiled plate, but do not let them touch each other. Pour about 2 inches of boiling water into a wok, set the plates in the steamer and set the steamer in the wok. Cover the steamer and cook over medium heat for 20 minutes.

Skillet Method: In a 12 inch skillet heat 2 tablespoons of oil until hot. Fill the skillet with mandu, making sure that they do not touch. Cook until the bottoms brown; about 1 minute. Add ⅓ cup water or beef broth to the skillet and cover and cood for about 10 minutes.

Serve Yakimandu with Dipping sauce.
