This recipe comes to us from Jason Lee of the blog Shut Up and Eat.
Dumplings can seem like a bit of a challenge, but this one used purchased wonton wrappers and a dead-simple filling where the big flavour of beef is the star. Recipe is here, but at ShutupandEat, Jason walks you through how-to with some great step-by-step photos that demonstrate how the fold the wrappers – easier than orgami!
