How to make Steamed Buddha's Hands
- Separate the cabbage leaves removing the soft, leafy portion; only the firm, white part is used.
- Slit each leaf lengthwise at 1/4-ince intervals to within 3/4-inch of the top and bottom.
- In a large pot of boiling water, add the leave and boil for 1 minute. Drain.
- In a bowl combine ground pork with ginger, salt, sake, and egg.
- Sprinkle cornstarch on cooked cabbage leaves. Spread pork mixture across each leaf and fold the leaf over to enclose the filling. The folded stuffed cabbage should remind you of hands.
- In a steamer, heat water. Arrange stuffed cabbage leaves on a plate, seam side down, and place them in the hot steamer for 15 minutes. Reserve the broth in the steamer for the sauce.
- Combine reserved broth with water to measure 1 cup and bring to a boil in a saucepan. Add soy sauce and cornstarch paste and return to a boil; remove from heat.
- Cook the peas briefly in boiling water, just until tender.
- Arrange steamed Buddha's hands on individual plates. Sprinkle with cooked peas and pour the hot sauce over the cabbage.
- Serve hot with steamed rice.
