Wonton Potstickers

This was my first time ever making potstickers. Anita agrees – they were fantastic! No, they’re not authentic. I didn’t make my own dough. I cheated and used wonton wrappers instead. They were an excellent first attempt at making wonton potstickers, and we’d make them the same way again the next time!

Wonton PotstickersIf you  like a little kick in your wonton potstickers, add a little dried pepper flake to the meat mixture before wrapping them. They also add a nice kick to the dipping sauce.

Also try my herbed wonton crisps. They make for a delicious snack. For something with more of a kick, try my creamy Cajun sausage ravioli.

Ingredients

For the potstickers

  • 8 ounces Napa cabbage sliced very thin
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1/4 cup green onions chopped fine
  • 1 tablespoon white wine
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • White pepper
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • Won Ton wrappers I used 2 packages of 24 and ended up with a few extras

For the dipping sauce

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil

Instructions

  • Mix cabbage and 2 teaspoons of salt in a large bowl and set aside for 5 minutes. Squeeze out any excess moisture.
  • Add in the pork, green onions, wine, cornstarch, 1 teapoon salt, 1 teaspoon sesame oil, and white pepper. Mix well.
  • Working in batches, spoon about 1 tablespoon of the meat mixture into the centers of the wrappers. Fold up edges to seal into a triangle.
  • Heat about 1 tablespoon of oil in a large skillet or wok. Add won tons, but don't add so many at one time that they get crowded.
  • Fry for 2-3 minutes or until bottoms are browned.
  • Flip the wrappers and add 1/2 cup of water. Put a lid on the skillet and let cook another 6-7 minutes or until the water has been absorbed. Remove to a plate and continue cooking remaining won tons in the same fashion.
  • Serve with the dipping sauce.

For the dipping sauce
