Easy Shumai with a Frying Pan

Easy Shumai with a Frying Pan

You can make juicy shumai with a frying pan! Just like shumai made with a steamer. Serve directly from the pan, and there's less dishes to wash than when using a steamer.

Ingredients: 4 servings

● Ground pork
400 g
● Japanese leek (finely chopped)
● Grated ginger
1 clove
● Sugar
2 tablespoons
● Soy sauce
2 tablespoons
● Sake
2 tablespoons
● Sesame oil
2 tablespoons
Bean sprouts
1 bag
Shumai skins
1 bag


1. Add all ● ingredients (everything listed except for bean sprouts and shumai skins) into a bowl.
2. Mix everything together (use a plastic bag to keep your hands clean).
3. Spread out the rinsed bean sprouts in a frying pan. Wrap up the filling with shumai skins and align on top. Don't drain the bean sprouts, just throw them in the pan.
4. Cover with a lid and cook over medium heat. When it's steaming, turn the heat to low and steam for about 15 minutes.
