directions

Step 1

In bowl, divide flour into 2 mounds.

Step 2

Stirring with fork, pour 1/2 cup (125 mL) boiling water over 1 of the mounds, mixing well.

Step 3

Add oil and salt to remaining mound.

Step 4

Gradually mix 1/2 cup (125 mL) cold water into both mounds to form dry, shaggy dough, adding up to 1 tablespoon (15 mL) more water if necessary.

Step 5

Turn out dough onto lightly floured surface; knead for 7 to 10 minutes or until smooth.

Step 6

Wrap in plastic wrap; let rest at room temperature for 30 minutes. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 2 days; bring to room temperature before using.)

Step 7

Meanwhile, in large bowl beat eggs.

Step 8

Add beef, onions, water, soysauce, ginger, hot pepper, sesame oil, salt and pepper; mix well. Set aside.

Step 9

On lightly floured surface, roll dough into log; cut into 16 pieces.

Step 10

Flatten each into disc.

Step 11

Keeping remaining discs covered, roll each into 6-inch (15cm) circle.

Step 12

Place rounded 1/4 cup (50 mL) filling in centre of each disc.

Step 13

Gather dough up around filling; pinch at top to seal. Cut or pinch off extra dough.

Step 14

Press to flatten slightly. Reroll scraps to make 20 dumplings. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours or freeze in airtight container for up to 1 month; cook frozen.)

Step 15

In nonstick skillet, heat half of the oil over medium heat.

Step 16

Add dumplings, in batches, pinched side up and keeping separate.

Step 17

Add enough water to come three-quarters of the way up the side of dumplings, about 1 cup (250 mL).

Step 18

Cover and cook over high heat for 8 minutes or until water evaporates.

Step 19

Uncover and cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes or until bottoms are golden and crusty. Repeat with remaining dumplings.

Step 20

Mix vinegar with soy sauce; divide among 8 to 10 small saucers.

Step 21

Sprinkle with sesame seeds (if using).

Step 22

Pass chili paste (if using) to add to sauce.
