Betty made Suey Choy Pork Dumpling in the Caring Place Community Kitchen a couple weeks ago.
This is the pan fried version which I find is more tasty than the boiled version. The boiled version is best served in hot broth to keep it warm. You can check out the technique of making the boiled version at this link.
- 1 package of fresh dumpling skin (about 50 pieces)
- 1 lb lean ground pork
- 1 1 small suey choy (napa cabbage), finely chopped
- 3 green onions, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon of minced ginger
- 2 tablespoons dark soy sauce
- 2 teaspoons sesame oil
- 1 teaspoon white pepper
- 1 teaspoon salt
Betty, thank you for sharing the technique of making dumplings.

I love pork & cabbage dumplings (but prefer boiled), I can eat them everyday !
Ooops, I commented above but forgot to sign in.
Looks so good! Where do you get your wrappers?
You may find such wrappers in Chinese groceries stores in places like Richmond Public Market, Crystal Mall and New Hong Kong Supermarket in Richmond.
Just wanted to add that in UK (and maybe other Western countries) this kind of dumpling is called “Pot Stickers” and in Japan, they are known as “Gyoza”.
I want also to add that I totally love your illustrative step-by-step pictorial guides to your recipes! I think ALL recipes should be presented in this manner! It’s so helpful and clear! Well done and keep it up!! Thanks!

I never heard of “suey choi” before but from the picture, I would think it is just another name for napa.
Hi Suzanne, suey choi is the Chinese name for napa cabbage.
I just figured I would hunt it down until I found a photo and was surprised to see napa which I and many others have used for years. It would be helpful when using a less common name (suey choi) for an ingredient commonly know but by another name (napa),the more common name could be included set off by commas or parentheses.
Hi Suzanne, I had included the name napa cabbage as suggested.
I have also used suey choi (siu choy) for many years and never known it to be called napa until California farmers started growing it in the Napa Valley. Depending where a person is from this veg can be called either and both would be a common name for it. I have also seen 2 types; one long and narrow, the other is shorter and grows thicker.
Hmmm … come to think of it. What does the sign says in the supermarkets in Vancouver? I know they says “Suey Choy” in the Asian stores and farm markets in Vancouver … but am wondering what they put up in places like the Superstore, IGA, and places like that.
Thanks. I am sure that will help many.
