    Once these dimsims have been put together, you can either fry them or steam them; both ways are delicious.

    Serves: 12 

    • 1 medium cabbage, finely shredded
    • 300g beansprouts
    • 3 celery sticks, chopped
    • 2 spring onions, chopped
    • 450g raw prawns, peeled, deveined and coarsely chopped
    • 500g lean minced beef
    • 3 tablespoons oyster sauce
    • 5 tablespoons soy sauce
    • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    • 1 large packet wonton wrappers
    • 1 cup vegetable oil, if frying

    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:40min  ›  Ready in:1hour 

    1. Place cabbage, beansprouts, celery and spring onions in a large wok and stir-fry over high heat until vegetables soften. If necessary, add a little water. Add prawns and stir-fry until cooked.
    2. Meanwhile, in a large frying pan over medium heat, brown the mince, draining off fat and liquid. Add the beef to the vegetable and prawn mixture and continue to fry over a high heat. Add oyster sauce, soy sauce and garlic. When well blended, remove mixture from heat.
    3. Place a tablespoon of the meat and prawn mixture into the centre of each wrapper. Dip your finger in a little water and run it around the edges of the wrapper. Gather wrapper edges to enclose filling and press together to seal.
    4. To fry the dim sims, heat oil in wok over medium heat and cook until golden brown. Alternatively, cook wontons in batches in a steamer over boiling water for 10-15 minutes, or until cooked.

    Used different ingredients. I thought this was good, but I added a little flavour to it by adding some freshly grated root ginger. I also used minced pork instead of beef. Wrapping can be tough until you get the hang of it, but the taste is worth it.  -  21 Jul 2008


    Used different ingredients. Very good base recipe. I did use pork instead of beef. I also added just a small amount of fresh grated ginger. Really great flavour. I will make these again for sure. My partner loved them.  -  21 Jul 2008


    My husband is a prawn egg roll lover & I have a hard time finding them in the shop for him. But then I found this recipe on this site & he got very excited. He absolutely LOVED them. Next time we will make another batch & freeze some. Thank-you for this wonderful recipe from both my husband & me.  -  21 Jul 2008
