1 tablespoon minced garlic
6 large shallots, sliced
3 cups sliced shiitakes
1 tablespoon naturally brewed soy sauce
1 cup scallions sliced thinly
1 cup cooked brown rice
1 tablespoon minced cilantro
1 teaspoon minced thyme
1 recipe hot water dough*
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
In a saute pan over medium heat coated lightly with oil, add garlic and shallots and saute until soft, season, about 4 minutes. Add shiitakes and saute until soft, about 5 minutes. Add naturally brewed soy sauce and check for flavor. Let cool. Stir in scallions, rice, cilantro and thyme. Check for flavor. Make bings: Divide dough and roll out into rounds, about 1/8-inch thick and 6 inches wide, with the edges about 1/16-inch thick. Place about 1/2 cup of filling into center of each round. Bring up sides of dough around filling and twist ends into a spiral to seal. Cut off extra dough, making sure that bings stay sealed. Slightly flatten the bings to make them more hockey-puck shaped. Heat a large nonstick saute pan (with a lid) over medium heat and add oil to coat the pan. Add bings, sealed side down, and cook until bottoms are crisp and golden. Flip to sear other side. Add about 1/3 cup water to pan, cover immediately and steam bings for about 6 minutes. Remove cover and allow bings to re-crisp on both sides. Serve with Three Chile Dipping Sauce.
