Bergy Dim Sum #1, Pork & Lettuce Rolls

Print PrintShare with Friends


This is great served as an appetizer or part of a Dim Sum brunch. Over the next few weeks I will be submitting other recipes suitable for Dim Sum. I will name and number them "Bergy Dim Sum 1, 2 etc." Many of the recipes will be freezer friendly so it is easy on the hostess (host) on the day of the brunch Edited 13 Dec 03 It has been a while since I made this recipe and found it was a bit light in the taste so I added 3/4 tsp hot chili flakes and 2 tbsp Schezwan sauce - just right for me. Do what the recipe says the first time and then you can spice it up. Do not mince the chestnuts, shoots & crab too fine you want a bit of crunch left.
