 Pork and leek dumplings

Pork and leek dumplings

To celebrate the Olympics, the Cooking Channel kitchens whipped up a world's worth of stuffed, pleated deliciousness, from Russian pelmeni to Japanese gyoza. The timing is perfect, as I've been trying to replicate one of my favorite childhood dishes — mom's homemade pork and leek jiaozi After a few attempts, I'm starting to get the folding down, but the flavor isn't quite there yet. When I finally get the seasoning right, I'll post a recipe and how-to — in the meantime, dig into these sweet and savory morsels.
