Thermomix Steamed Pork Dumplings | ThermoFun - Recipes & Tips (2024)

Jump to recipe

This Thermomix Steamed Pork Dumplings recipe was originally published on my blog in September 2014. I have since tweaked it to make the method clearer. Enjoy!

Steamed dumplings in the Varoma are just awesome! Particularly dipped in my homemade sweet chilli sauce made in your Thermomix!

I recommend a plastic dumpling press, it was so worth the $2.50 from anAsian shop! It makes the job much quicker and the final result is that thedumplings are well sealed and uniform.

Thermomix Steamed Pork Dumplings | ThermoFun - Recipes & Tips (2)


  • 500g pork mince
  • 4 spring onions, quartered
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 2cm fresh ginger
  • 1 small can bamboo shoots, drained
  • 1 tablespoon Chinese rice wine
  • ¼ teaspoon white pepper
  • ¾ teaspoon sesame oil
  • 50g soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 3 teaspoon raw sugar
  • handful fresh coriander
  • 30-60 wonton/dumpling wrappers
  • 700g boiling water from kettle
  • ThermoFun Sweet Chilli Sauce



    1. Place all filling ingredients (except wonton wrappers and boiling water) into TM bowl and chop 1 sec / Turbo.
    2. Scrape down and repeat.
      No need to wash TM bowl.
    3. Oil Varoma trays to prevent sticking.
    4. Place 1 teaspoon of filling onto wonton wrappers. Brush edges of wrapper with water (finger dipped in water works well!) and fold wrapper over in half. Press edges firmly to join and place onto Varoma tray.
    5. Pour boiling water into TM bowl and place assembled Varoma onto TM lid and steam 17 mins / Varoma / speed 2.
    6. Serve with ThermoFun Sweet Chilli Sauce.


    This recipe is enough to make 60 dumplings (2 x packets of 30 wappers).
    Unused mixture can be frozen or the recipe can be halved.
    Mixture can be made into meatballs and steam without wrappers to add to an Asian soup or to have with a simple dipping sauce.

      This is my fourth time making them and everyone loves them, I do it with the pork and I also make the sweet chilli sauce, which is the best ever, we even put it on a sandwich, delicious.


      • thermofun says

        Thanks Jenny great to hear! Agree the sweet chilli sauce is the BEST to! :)


    2. Emma says

      Easy and tasty recipe. I made mine with chicken mince which tends to cook really quickly. Only need 10 to 12 minutes of steaming (maybe a little longer for first batch while water heats up, or you can pre-heat water).


      • thermofun says

        I'm pleased you enjoyed the dumplings Emma. Yes they are lovely too with chicken. I always start with water boiling from the kettle because I lack in patience! lol!!


    3. Jo says

      Really yummy thanks. It is worth learning from my mistake though and making sure they don't touch each other whilst steaming or you get one big dumpling mess. :)
      Will definitely make again and they are also tasty as meatballs.


      • thermofun says

        Thanks Jo! Yes they are too yummy!


    4. Jill Ford says

      Yum and they freeze Great!


    5. jill ford says

      Made a double batch of the dumplings and froze them.

      I use them to make a super quick easy soup......

      Put a heap of veggies into a small saucepan (corn, carrots, zucchini, red capsicum, bok choy) add boiling water and a tsp of chicken stock paste. bring to the boil. once boiling, throw in some of the frozen dumplings. Cook for five minutes. serve with sliced spring onions on top. YUM!


      • thermofun says

        Great idea with freezing them Jill and then adding to a soup. :)


      • Jennie says

        Did you freeze then cooked?


        • thermofun says

          I don't cook them before freezing Jennie. But that's because I never have any left!


    6. Belinda hibbert says

      oh yumm. I've been after a good dumpling recipe these look delicious and will be on out weekend menu. Thanks


      • thermofun says

        Enjoy Belinda! :)


    7. Joanne T Ferguson says

      Thank you soooooooooooooo much Leonie as made these the other day adapting for my food lifestyle and that I love chili. I did not use the full 700 grams of hot water, but LOVED that this recipe is so quick, easy to do!
      One of the other reasons I picked this recipe is I wanted to try out my plastic dumpling press, but in all my excitement in making this, I hand did them and forgot to use! lol
      I would make these again and in addition to the chili sauce (which I want to make in the Thermomix - and as inspired by you), I used a combination of homemade tamari sugarfree and wasabi!


      • thermofun says

        Pleased to hear you enjoyed them Joanne. I did laugh that you actually forgot to use your dumpling press! :)


    8. BJS says

      thanks for sharing. I'm not a fan of pork so was wondering if this could be substituted for chicken or a chicken/pork 50/50 split?


      • thermofun says

        Yes absolutely 50/50 OR 100% chicken! :)


        • Natasha says

          We made these today and used chicken mince. Was a hit with the whole family!


          • thermofun says

            That's a great suggestion. Thanks Natasha, and glad the family enjoyed!
