How to Make Chinese Noodles & Pork Dumplings
- 3Chef's Note: What is Tamari?
Tamari is a type of soy sauce, specifically Japanese soy sauce. When compared side by side, you’ll immediately notice that tamari is deeper brown, and slightly thicker, than ordinary soy sauce. While similar in taste, the one advantage of tamari is that you can get it gluten free.
- 5Spread the cornstarch (or arrowroot) onto a piece of parchment, and roll the pork dumplings until completely coated.
- 8Place the chicken stock and fish sauce into a large pot and bring to the boil.
- 10Cook for ten minutes, uncovered.
- 11Add the vegetables, and continue to cook uncovered for 2 to 3 minutes. The vegetables should be tender but still crisp.
- 14Drain them out of the water, and add them to the pot.
- 15Continue to simmer for 2 minutes, until the noodles soften.
