INSTRUCTIONS FOR BEEF AND SHIITAKE DUMPLINGS WITH ORANGE PONZU DIPPING SAUCE

  1. Combine Dipping Sauce ingredients in small bowl. Set aside.
  2. Heat sesame oil in large saucepan over medium heat until hot. Add mushrooms, carrots, and garlic; cook and stir 5 minutes. Remove from heat; add green onions and ginger. Transfer to large bowl; cool to room temperature. Meanwhile, place ground beef in food processor bowl.  Pulse on and off for 10 to 15 seconds until smooth.  Add ground beef to vegetable mixture; mix lightly but thoroughly.
  3. Spoon 2 teaspoons beef filling in center of 1 won ton wrapper. (Keep remaining won ton wrappers covered to prevent them from drying out.) Moisten edges of won ton wrapper with fingertip dipped in water. Bring 4 corners of wrapper up and over filling, forming pyramid shape and pinching edges together to seal. Place on metal baking sheet lined with parchment or waxed paper. Repeat with remaining won ton wrappers and filling to form 48 dumplings.
  4. Spray steamer basket with nonstick cooking spray. Place as many dumplings into steamer basket that will fit without touching each other. Place basket over 1 inch boiling water (water should not touch bottom of basket). Cover tightly; reduce heat. Steam 6 to 7 minutes or until beef is no longer pink in center. Carefully remove dumplings to serving plate; keep warm. Repeat with remaining dumplings.
  5. Garnish platter with green onion strips, if desired. Serve with dipping sauce.
