Matt Melville cooked up these delicious dumplings using leftover brisket (lamb shoulder works well here too), a handful of fresh and frozen veggies, and some chili. Comfort food at its best - and a great recipe to get the kids involved with! Feel free to experiment with this recipe.

For the brisket dumplings
For the sauce
This method makes around 24 dumplings
In a wok or large pan fry off the garlic cloves, chilli, and spring onion over a medium heat until fragrant.
Add the brisket and prawns to the wok.
Add 2 tablespoons of sweet soy to the wok
Cook until everything is warmed through (around 2-3 minutes)
Remove from the wok and place the mixture in a bowl
Fill each dumpling wrapper with a small amount of the brisket mixture. Seal the edges with water or a beaten egg.
If you have a small dumpling press, use that instead as this will make the job much easier
Use a steaming bamboo basket to cook the dumplings over boiling water. It should only take a few minutes; the dumplings will go see through when done.
If you do not have a bamboo basket, bring a medium size pot of water to boil. Place the dumplings in the boiling water and cook for approximately 2-3 minutes
Once the dumplings are cooked, transfer them to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.
