Potstickers


Crispy on the outside, these homemade potstickers taste so much better than store bought. These fried dumplings are filled with ground pork, garlic, ginger, green onions, and spices. Making your own egg roll wrappers makes all the difference in the taste!

Ingredients – Filling
1 1/4 lb. ground pork
1 cup cremini mushrooms, chopped
2 cloves garlic, grated
2 green onions, thinly sliced
1 tbsp ginger, grated
1 tbsp hoisin
1 tsp Siracha
1/4 tsp white pepper
1/4 tsp Chinese five spice

Ingredients – Dough
2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp Kosher salt
1 cup water
2 tbsp olive oil
1 egg, lightly beaten

Ingredients – Dipping Sauce
2 tbsp teriyaki sauce
1 tbsp fish sauce
2 tsp sweet thai chili sauce

Begin by making the dough. Place the flour and the salt in a mixing bowl and make a well. Add the water and the egg and mix the dough with your hands. Add the oil and knead. Transfer to a flour surface and knead the dough until it becomes soft and elastic. Cover the dough and let it rest for 30 minutes.

In the meantime, chop the mushrooms, slice the onions and grate the ginger and garlic. Add to a bowl along with the ground pork and seasonings. Mix together well.

On a floured surface, roll out the dough into a log shape. Cut into 20 equal pieces. Using your fingers, shape out the dough into an oval shape. Use a rolling pin dusted with flour to roll out a 3 1/2” size. Place one full tablespoon of the mixture on the one side of the round. Wet your finger and lightly moisten the edges around the meat. Pull over the other side to blanket the meat mixture. Using a fork, press on the outside edge. Place on a well floured tray.

Heat oil in a deep frying pan. Place the potstickers in the hot oil and cook until the bottom becomes golden brown (approximately 3 minutes). Traditionally, two tablespoons of water is added to the pan with the potstickers and it is covered to steam them for 2 minutes. I prefer to turn them over and crisp them on all sides instead (a much crunchier version of this dish). The meat mixture inside cooks further as it rests.

To make the dipping sauce,simply blend together all ingredients. Serve the potstickers warm with the dipping sauce.

Makes 20 potstickers.
