For the filling:

  • 1/2 pound ground pork
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped shrimp
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped green onions
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped water chestnuts
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Wonton wrappers

For garnish (optional):

  • Finely chopped green onions
  • Soy sauce
  • Chili oil


  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground pork, chopped shrimp, green onions, water chestnuts, soy sauce, oyster sauce, sesame oil, grated ginger, sugar, salt, and black pepper. Mix well until all ingredients are evenly incorporated.
  • Take a wonton wrapper and place about a tablespoon of the filling mixture in the center.
  • Wet the edges of the wrapper with water using your finger, then bring the edges together to enclose the filling, forming a pleated pouch or leaving the top open, depending on your preference. Repeat with the remaining filling and wrappers.
  • Place the shumai on a parchment-lined baking sheet or in a steamer basket, leaving a little space between each dumpling to prevent them from sticking together.
  • If steaming, bring water to a boil in a steamer pot. Place the shumai in the steamer basket, cover, and steam for about 8-10 minutes, or until the filling is cooked through and the wrapper is translucent.
  • If baking, preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Place the shumai on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for about 12-15 minutes, or until the filling is cooked through and the wrapper is golden brown.
  • Once cooked, garnish the shumai with finely chopped green onions and serve with soy sauce and chili oil on the side for dipping.
  • Enjoy your homemade Pork Shumai dim sum!
  • Feel free to adjust the filling ingredients according to your taste preferences, adding more seasoning or spices as desired. You can also customize the garnishes and dipping sauces to suit your taste.
