 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    4       c            All-purpose flour
    1 1/2   c            Water
      1/2   lb           Ground round
    2       ts           Low-sodium soy sauce
    1       t            Sherry
    2       c            Fresh chopped spinach  OR
    1       c            Frozen spinach thawed
    1       t            Grated fresh ginger
      1/4   c            Finely minced water chestnut
    2       x            Green onions chopped
 
       Mix flour and water.  Add more water a teaspoon at a time until
   dough cleans bowl.  Turn it out on a floured board; knead smooth.
   Wrap in plastic wrap, and set aside for 20 minutes.
       Brown and drain ground beef of all fat.  Wash and dry fresh
   spinach, or dry frozen spinach.  Combine with ground beef and
   remaining ingredients. Mix well.
       Form dough into a long roll 1 inch in diameter. Cut or break into
   1 inch sections.  With your hands or a large glass, flatten each
   piece into a circle 3 inches in diameter. Place 1 TABLESPOON of
   filling in the center of each circle.  With a finger dipped in water,
   dampen the edge of the circle. Fold the dough over the filling and
   press to seal. Brush a nonstick frying pan with 1/2 teaspoon oil.
   Place the dumplings in the pan and brown them on each side.
     Add enough broth or water to come up to a third of the height of the
   dumplingsl  Cover pan tightly, and steam until water is all gone -
   about 15 to 20 minutes. Serve the dumplings hot or cold with sherry
   or vinegar for dipping.
