But when I left for college, my mom helped me write out some of our family's favorite recipes, including my mom's Mandoo recipe. And guys, you know this one's authentic. Straight from South Korea.
Mandoo (Korean Dumplings)Ingredients:
2 cups cabbage, very finely chopped
1-2 teaspoons salt
1 pound low-fat ground beef
3 carrots, grated
2 green onions, finely chopped
1 package Mandoo skins
Place chopped cabbage in a bowl and sprinkle with salt. Set aside and let it reduce for about half an hour. Then use a mesh strainer to rinse the cabbage and squeeze out any extra water.
Put a shallow layer of oil (we used canola) to coat the bottom of a frying pan. Heat on low heat. Cook in small batches, about 7-9 at a time. Cook each side until browned and serve immediately.
