Easy Kimchi Mandu (Kimchi Dumplings) with Seaweed


  1. Mix together kimchi, onion, Gimme Seaweed, green onion, garlic, egg, salt, and sesame oil until well combined then mix in pork until just combined.
  2. Lay a dumpling wrapper flat and put with a spoonful of filling in the center. Dip your finger in water and wet the edges of half the dumpling. Then fold in half, pleating the wrapper as you go from one side to the other, to seal.
  3. Repeat until mix and wrappers are all folded together.
  4. Heat a nonstick pan over medium heat then add dumplings so there is space in between each and they do not touch. Cook until bottoms are golden, about 2-5 minutes.
  5. Reduce the heat to low, add ¼ cup water, and cover to steam-cook. Cook about 5 minutes until most of the water has cooked off.
  6. Set aside cooked dumplings, wipe pan to dry it, then repeat cooking process until all are cooked.
  7. Serve on a plate topped with chili crisp, green onion, and more Gimme Seaweed.
