Asian Cooking Pork Substitute

Menu Item: Shrimp Dumplings. : what can I use to replace the pork to come close to the richness it provides? Not trying to replicate the flavor.

I used ground chicken thighs in mapo tofu and it was great. The thighs are much moister than the breasts.

I also use ground chicken thighs as a ground pork replacement for dumplings.

Ground chicken thighs have just enough fat to keep things moist. My mom uses this too.

Ground veal, or beef. Lamb will be overpowering for the shrimp, and chicken is too lean.
