We had fun with this recipe this on New Year's Day. Making the filling was pretty straightforward except I couldn't find Chinese rice wine, so I used the rice wine vinegar and I substituted chicken for pork as that was what I had on hand. I hadn't made much Asian food before except for stir fry, so finding the wrappers was a challenge until someone told me they were in the refrigerated produce section of the grocery store. Instead of chopping the fresh ginger root, I peeled back the skin and used a fine grater. The fun part was that the kids and I filled and folded the wrappers together, which reduced the prep time by quite a bit. The best part is they want to do it every year now. I would make sure the meat used is precooked, as it doesn't take long for the wrappers to cook and I boiled it in the chicken broth and didn't have any trouble with cloudiness. I also doubled this to feed our family of four. Glad I did, as it made just barely enough for us. Very delicious!
