For the dipping sauce, whisk all ingredients together and set aside.

For the dumplings, combine pork, cilantro, green onions, garlic, ginger, pepper, rice vinegar and tamari in a medium bowl. Stir well to combine thoroughly. Arrange a heaping teaspoon of pork filling on a wrapper and follow the instructions on the package to form into a wonton. Transfer to a wax paper-lined baking sheet and repeat process with remaining filling and wrappers. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Gently lower the dumplings into water and cook for about 5 minutes, or until they float to the surface. Alternatively, steam the dumplings for 15 to 20 minutes. Remove a dumpling and cut into it to make sure that the pork is fully cooked. Carefully remove dumplings with a slotted spoon to a platter. Serve immediately with dipping sauce.
