Today we are all about the meat pies. Not your traditional pie per se, but more like Chinese potstickers on steroids. These green onion and pork filled pies are off the hook, crazy delicious. These are my Forbidden City Chinese Meat Pies with Scallion Ginger Cilantro Butter!

I first saw a photo of these and had to check them out. I mean look at these? Mouth watering, drool worthy, right?

The name for these captivated me as did the story behind it, but I’ll let you read about that later – Jaded Door Nail Meat Pies. Now mine here are a little different, in the fact they aren’t as compact and tall as the ones I saw as inspiration for this post. But it’s all about the flavor and these are packed with it from pork, green onion, sesame oil and the like. Then they get emulsified with water and end up being the most tender, moist creations. Using homemade dough that is super elastic, but easy to make and then pan seared and steamed.

The kicker here is the Scallion Ginger Cilantro Butter. Can I just say it’s outrageous? I added a few things to the original recipe and I will say this, holy smokes it’s a keeper. A few shakes of some red pepper flakes that I pulverized in my spice grinder and I served it up to applause. Trust.
