Seven ways to do dumplings

Dumplings may be bite-sized, but they pack a flavourful punch. Here are seven mouth-watering recipes, from Korean mandu to classic Chinese-style steamed dumplings.

Pickett's Deli & Rotisserie, Melbourne

Here’s Pickett’s inside running on the menu at Melbourne's new European-style eatery and wine bar Pickett's Deli & Rotisserie.

Apfel kuchen

"This is my mother's famous apple cake. The apples are macerated with sugar, cinnamon and lemon, and this lovely juice produces the icing," says Brigitte Hafner. The apples can be prepared the night before and kept in the fridge. This cake keeps well for four days and is at its best served the day after it's made."

Nougat, salted peanut caramel and milk chocolate tart

What's not to love about a Snickers bar? All the elements are here, but if you don't feel like making your own nougat, you could always scatter some diced nougat in the base of the tart instead. The caramel is dark, verging on bitter, while a good whack of salt cuts through some of the sweetness - extra roasted salted peanuts on top can only be a good thing.

Chicken stir-fried with holy basil and chilli

Pulled beef rolls with corn and green chilli relish


It may seem time-consuming to make your own barbecue sauce, but it makes all the difference. Of course you can use shop-bought sauce if you like.

You'll need

30 ml vegetable oil 2 onions, finely chopped 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped 800 gm canned chopped tomatoes 2 kg beef chuck 8 buttered soft rolls, to serve To serve: butter lettuce leaves and coriander sprigs   Barbecue sauce onions, coarsely chopped 2 garlic cloves 2 long red chillies, coarsely chopped 60 ml (¼ cup) vegetable oil 250 ml bourbon whiskey 165 gm (½ cup) molasses 125 ml (½ cup) each tomato sauce, lemon juice and cider vinegar 80 ml (1/3 cup) Worcestershire sauce   Corn and green chilli relish 600 gm corn kernels (from about 4 corn cobs) 300 ml white vinegar 100 gm caster sugar 30 ml dry white wine 6 golden shallots, thinly sliced 4 long green chillies, thickly sliced 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced

Method

  • 01
  • For barbecue sauce, process onion, garlic and chilli in a food processor until finely chopped. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat, add onion mixture, sauté until tender (6-8 minutes). Add bourbon, simmer for 5 minutes, add remaining ingredients. Simmer until thick (15-20 minutes), season to taste, cool. Makes about 550ml. Barbecue sauce will keep refrigerated for 2 weeks.
  • 02
  • Heat oil in a large saucepan, add onion and garlic, sauté over medium heat until tender (4-5 minutes). Add tomato and barbecue sauce, simmer for 10 minutes. Add beef, bring to the simmer, cover, reduce heat to low, cook until meat falls apart (3½-4 hours). Remove from sauce and, when cool enough to handle, coarsely shred (discard sinew) and set aside. Continue cooking sauce, stirring occasionally to prevent scorching, until thick (30-40 minutes), drizzle a little over beef, keep warm.
  • 03
  • Meanwhile, for corn and green chilli relish, combine ingredients and 60ml water in a saucepan, season to taste, stir over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil, cook until corn is tender (15-20 minutes), transfer to a sterile container, refrigerate until chilled. Makes about 750ml. Corn relish will keep refrigerated for up to 1 month.

  • To serve, stuff rolls with pulled beef, corn and green chilli relish, lettuce and coriander, and serve with extra sauce.
