Homemade Stuffed Braised Beef Dumplings

Ingredients for Dumplings:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (for the wrappers)

  • 3/4 cup boiling water (for the wrappers)

  • 1/2 pound braised beef, finely shredded

  • 1/4 cup green onions, finely chopped

  • 2 teaspoons ginger, minced

  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil

Homemade Dumpling Wrappers:

  1. Mix the Dough: In a large bowl, gradually add the boiling water to the flour, mixing continuously until a dough forms. Once cool enough to handle, knead on a lightly floured surface until smooth, about 5 minutes.

  2. Rest the Dough: Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let it rest for at least 30 minutes. This makes the dough easier to work with.

  3. Form the Wrappers: Divide the dough into small balls (about 1 inch in diameter). On a lightly floured surface, roll each ball out into a circle about 3 inches in diameter.

Filling and Cooking:

  1. Prepare the Filling: Combine the shredded braised beef, green onions, ginger, soy sauce, and sesame oil in a mixing bowl. Stir well to ensure the flavors meld together.

  2. Stuff the Dumplings: Place a small spoonful of the beef mixture in the center of each wrapper. Wet the edges of the wrapper lightly with water, fold in half, and press to seal, ensuring no air is trapped inside.

  3. Cook in the AirFryer: Preheat your AirFryer to 375°F. Place the dumplings in the basket, ensuring they do not touch. Cook for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown, turning halfway through for even cooking.

Southwestern-Asian Fusion Sauce

Ingredients for Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce

  • 2 tablespoons honey

  • Juice of 1 lime

  • 1 teaspoon chili powder

  • 1 clove garlic, minced


  1. Combine Ingredients: In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, honey, lime juice, chili powder, and garlic until well combined.

  2. Adjust to Taste: Taste the sauce and adjust the seasoning if necessary. For a spicier kick, add more chili powder or a splash of hot sauce.
