Delicious and Easy Homemade Korean Dumplings

Wouldn’t you think Asian dumplings would be hard to make at home? If you’ve been a regular reader of my blog, you know I am all about efficiency and EASY when it comes to cooking. I love a good meal, but I just don’t have the time to slave away in the kitchen for hours. This Korean Dumpling recipe will blow you away with how delicious and fresh it tastes despite the easy process to make!

The hardest part about this recipe is finding the dumpling wraps and Asian chives which may not be sold at your regular grocer. They are very easy to find at Korean or Asian grocery stores, so if you can visit one near you, you’re set to make these scrumptious homemade Korean dumplings. Skip to the recipe card below, or read on for more tips.

I noticed some Targets sell the dumpling wrappers, so they may be easier to find than I thought. They will look like the picture above, and likely be in the frozen section.

“Buchu” or Asian chives (sometimes called garlic chives) look like this. Larger than chives, much thinner than scallions. They look like long strands of grass. 

Once you have all your ingredients, it takes about 15 minutes to prepare the filling. Most of the prep time is for chopping the onions, garlic, and Asian chives. You simply add all the ingredients together and hand mix before you start shaping the dumplings.

Putting the dumplings together is the part that takes some time, but what a fun activity for the kids to help with! Without their help, it will take another 15-20 minutes to shape the dumplings to get ready to cook or freeze.
