If you’ve been on Pinterest or Instagram in the last few months you have probably seen an influx of dumpling recipes. We’re not sure if it has (everything) to do with the arrival of the dumpling emoji on our phones or if more people are experimenting making these little delights at home. Regardless of the reason, the Test Kitchen wanted to experiment. And they found that using some of our favorite Hamilton Beach appliances can help making steamed pork dumplings at home a breeze.

To make a delicious dumpling, you have to start with a delicious filling. This is where your Hamilton Beach® food processor comes in handy. Using a food processor fitted with the chopping/mixing blade (running), add cabbage, green onions, garlic, jalapeño, ginger, and cilantro through the food shoot until the cabbage is minced.

Then add pork, rice vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil, salt, and pepper to the food processor and PULSE a few until the filling combines. You’ll use the paste-like mixture to fill the wonton wrappers.

Now it’s time to assemble the dumplings. Place one wonton wrapper on a cutting board and add 1 ½ teaspoon of the pork filling into the center of the wrapper.

Using a little bit of water, wet your finger or a small pastry brush, then moisten the edges of the wrapper.

To form the dumpling, bring all four edges of the wrapper up to form and point then pinch the sides together to secure the filling. They will look like little edible pouches.

Once the dumplings are made, add water to your rice cooker cooking pot. Place the dumplings (in a single layer) in your rice cooker basket and close the lid. Steam the dumplings for about 30 minutes on the STEAM COOK setting until the pork is fully cooked.

You may know pork as “the other white meat,” but thanks to this slow cooker pork chop recipe it’s now the other slow cooker protein. Chicken and pot roast are great for slow cooker meals, but don’t forget about pork.

Slow Cooker Ranch Pork Chops

If you want to break away from your go-to salsa chicken and slow cooker chili recipes, incorporate these smothered ranch pork chops into the weekday dinner cycle.

This 6-ingredient recipe is made with things you likely already have in the pantry, making it a convenient dinner option for busy weeknights when time and effort are lacking.

Slow Cooker Ranch Pork Chops

Spray your slow cooker crock with nonstick cooking spray then add cream of mushroom soup, onion soup mix, ranch dressing mix, garlic powder, and black pepper.  Next add your bone-in pork chops to the crock and fully coat with the mixture. Cook of HIGH for 2 ½ to 3 hours or LOW for 5 to 6 hours.

Slow Cooker Ranch Pork Chops

Smothered pork chops can be served with a variety of simple sides for a low-maintenance, comforting dinner. We served these creamy chops with red potatoes and sugar snaps peas but they’d be delicious served over warm mashed potatoes (with extra gravy from the slow cooker, of course) or even brown rice. Think outside chicken and beef the next time you plug in your slow cooker.

Who doesn’t love Cuban food? Empanadas, tostones, tres leches cake, Cuban sandwiches, paella – it’s all good. Whether you frequent the Cuban restaurant in town or want to experiment cooking Cuban cuisine at home, we guarantee you’ll become a fan after trying this slow cooker mojo (a type of sauce that consists of olive oil, garlic, and citrus juice) pork.

To prepare mojo pork (you can use Boston butt or pork shoulder), trim the fat and cut the meat into 2 pieces. Cover all sides of the pork with a rub made of garlic, salt, oregano, and black pepper. Add orange juice and zest, lime juice and zest, onion, and jalapeno to the slow cooker crock, then add the pork to the juice mixture. Cover the crock and refrigerate, allowing the meat to marinate overnight (this step makes all the difference).

 

In the morning, turn the pork over in the marinade then cook on HIGH for 5 to 6 hours or LOW for 8 to 10 hours. When the pork is done, remove it from the crock and shred (you won’t believe how tender the meat is).

 

We served mojo pork on a bed of rice (cilantro lime rice would go perfectly with this dish) and black beans, then topped it with a generous dollop of homemade guacamole, and fresh cilantro.

 

This pork is succulent and zesty thanks to the 12-hour stay in the citrus marinade. Transform the dining room into Havana for a night, or serve right out of the crock at your next neighborhood potluck. And if you’re lucky enough to have leftovers, throw them on a slider or nachos – it’s even better the next day.
