Steamed Pork and Pumpkin Dumplings

The original recipe calls for steamed dumplings with homemade wrappers. I turned these into pot-stickers using this recipe. You could also use store-bought wrappers. The recipe below is only for the filling. The original recipe calls for finely chopping the pumpkin and boiling it. To simplify, I used pumpkin puree.
