   2 qt Water
   1 1/2 tb Sesame oil     
   1 tb soy sauce
   2 tb Oyster sauce     
   1 scallion onion chopped

In a large saucepan bring 2 quarts water to a boil. Add won ton and boil for 5 minutes; then remove with a strainer or colander.

     STEAMED CRABMEAT DUMPLINGS

     1 package round won ton or goyza wraps
     2 dried Chinese mushrooms
     pound fresh crabmeat
     3 tablespoons oil
     1 tablespoon finely chopped, peeled fresh ginger root
     teaspoon salt
     1/8 teaspoon ground white pepper
     teaspoon sugar
     
  PREPARE AHEAD:
      TO MAKE THE FILLING:
      In a small bowl, cover the mushrooms with cup of warm water and let them soak for 30 minutes. Then remove the mushrooms with a slotted spoon and discard the water. With a cleaver or sharp knife, cut away and discard the tough stems of the mushrooms and chop the caps as fine as possible; set aside.Pick through the crabmeat, discarding any bits or slivers of cartilage. Shred the meat fine and set aside.  Place the oil, chopped ginger root, salt, white pepper and sugar within easy reach.Set a wok  over high heat for about 30 seconds. Pour in 3 tablespoons of oil, swirl it about in the pan and heat for another 30 seconds, reducing the heat to moderate if the oil begins to smoke. Immediately add the ginger and then the mushrooms and crabmeat, and stir-fry for 2 to 3 minutes. Then stir in the salt, pepper and sugar,stir-fry 30 seconds longer, and transfer the entire contents of the pan to a bowl. Cool to room temperature.
  TO ASSEMBLE:
      Place a teaspoonful of the cooled crabmeat filling in the middle of each wrapper. Then fold the edges together to make half-moon-shaped pastries, pressing and pinching the edges to seal them securely. Stand the  dumplings upright, pinched edges on top, and push them down gently with your fingers to form bases wide enough for the dumplings to stand upright, unsupported. If they are not to be steamed immediately, cover them with plastic wrap and refrigerate.
  TO COOK:
      Pour enough boiling water into the lower part of a steamer to come to within an inch of the cooking rack. If you have steamer trays, arrange the dumplings on two trays and steam them all at one time. Or, for single steamers, choose a heatproof plate -inch smaller than the diameter of the pot, brush the plate with oil and place half of the dumplings on it. Over high heat, bring the water in the steamer to a boil. Put the plate on the rack, or the trays in place, cover the pan tightly and, over high heat, steam for 5 minutes. If you are doing 2 batches, return the first batch of dumplings to the steamer after the second batch is done and reheat them together in the steamer for a minute or so before serving. In any case, during the steaming process, it is wise to keep a kettle of boiling water at hand if the water in the steamer boils away and needs replenishing.

      Put rice in a saucepan cover with the 4 cups of water, add light soy sauceand 1 teasp of sesame oil. Bring to boil quickly, then turn heat to low cover and cook for 15 minutes. While the rice cooks soak the mushrooms in very hot water for 30 minutes (save 1 1/2 cups of the soaking water). Cut off the mushroom stems and discard, slice the caps and put them in a saucepan with 3/4 cup of the soaking water, the dark soy sauce and 2 teasp sesame oil. Add chicken and pork to the saucepan along with the garlic, ginger and salt. Add up to 1/2 cup of the mushroom water and mix the ingredients. Cover and simmer 5 minutes.

Take 3/4 cup portions and place on the wrap of your choice. Wrap very securely and tie with string to ensure the bundle will not leak (if using tinfoil you do not need string but wrap and double fold all seams).Steam for 25 minutes. Serve warm, cold.
