In a large sauté pan with a lid, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium-high heat. Place the dumplings in the pan so they aren’t touching and sauté until they are nicely browned on the bottom. Add 1/2 cup water to the pan and steam the dumplings covered for about 3 minutes, or until pork is cooked through. Repeat the process with the remaining dumplings.

Place the cooked dumplings on a warm platter and serve with the sauce.

To make ahead: The filling can be made 8 hours ahead and kept in the refrigerator. The dumplings can be assembled up to one month ahead. Freeze them in a single layer on a baking sheet, then transfer to a freezer bag. Cook directly from the freezer, adding another few minutes to the cooking time.
