Potstickers are an absolute favorite in our household. We eat them as appetizers, snacks or even a light dinner.

MY OTHER RECIPES


I have also eaten this as a breakfast entree with a poached egg on top and some toast. It sounds a little strange but a poached egg will go with anything.

And with all of the health benefits and therapeutic properties of ginger, I’m just trying to do right by my body by inhaling these bad boys at 7:30 in the morning.

Potstickers are also one of those dishes that you can make with your partner from time to time – particularly on date night – no matter what his or her culinary skill level is.

Because at the end of the day, even the ugly, explosive potstickers that your husband folds up with way too much filling tastes just as good.

Pork Ginger Potstickers

Super easy, freezer-friendly potstickers made completely from scratch. So hearty AND healthier than take-out!

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1 cup shredded green cabbage
  • 3 ounces shiitake mushrooms, diced
  • 1 carrot, peeled and shredded
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated ginger
  • 2 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • 40 won ton wrappers
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, combine pork, cabbage, mushrooms, carrot, garlic, green onion, ginger, soy sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar and white pepper.*
  2. To assemble the dumplings, place wrappers on a work surface. Spoon 1 tablespoon of the pork mixture into the center of each wrapper. Using your finger, rub the edges of the wrappers with water. Fold the dough over the filling to create a half-moon shape, pinching the edges to seal.*
  3. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add potstickers in a single layer and cook until golden and crisp, about 2-3 minutes per side.
  4. Serve immediately with soy sauce, if desired.

*The filling in the potstickers does not have to be cooked prior to wrapping.

*To freeze, place uncooked potstickers in a single layer on a baking sheet overnight. Transfer to freezer bags.
