Pot Stickers

Pot Stickers


I have made these several times now and this is the first time I actually had some leftover to photograph – I usually eat a TON of them. They are TO.DIE.FOR.

I always thought pot stickers would be more difficult to make so I never attempted them but now that we live fairly far out in the mountains it’s a teensy bit difficult to order chinese food. I could have Jeremiah bring the order home after work but since he doesn’t usually get home till about 7 or so, that’s not really a great option either.

Although lately I have been pretty bad about late dinners – but these are so good and easy that I don’t even want take out anymore.

I want these.

These delightful little nuggets of meat and pastry and soy sauce – oh so good!

The recipe also makes a bunch which is handy since we usually eat a bunch. Last night Jeremiah was grabbing them by the fistful and eating them so fast I don’t think he actually tasted them. Thankfully I only made half the batch so I could make more later to eat for lunch and take pictures of – see, I’m being prepared :)

Recipe By:
Recipe type: Dinner, Side Dish
Cuisine: Chinese
Serves: 6-8
  • 8 ounces ground beef
  • ¼ cup red onion
  • 2 tablespoons red bell pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon yellow mustard
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1½ teaspoons kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 35-40 small wonton wrappers
  • 1¼ cups chicken or vegetable broth
Preparation Instructions
  1. In a medium size mixing bowl combine all the ingredients except of course the wrappers and the chicken broth.
  2. Next get the wrappers out and lay out about 10 of them.
  3. Take a 1 teaspoon measuring spoon and scoop a teaspoon of the meat mixture onto the center of each wrapper.
  4. Then get a little dish of water and set it next to your work area, then dip one finger in it and swipe the water onto two edges of a wonton wrapper (ones that are next to each other) and fold the wrapper in half to make a triangle - sealing the edges together.
  5. Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling.
  6. Next heat a large fry pan to medium high heat with about 2 tablespoons oil.
  7. Once the pan is hot place as many pot stickers into the pan as you can fit in one layer - I got about 10 in mine - and fry until slightly browned, about a minute or so. Flip over and brown the other side.
  8. Once both sides are slightly browned, pour about ¼ cup of the chicken broth into the pan and cover, allowing it to simmer until all the liquid evaporates, another couple minutes.
  9. Once the liquid is evaporated, remove the pot stickers to a tray and repeat until they are all cooked.
  10. Serve with soy sauce.
