Pork and Ginger Potstickers

Pork and Ginger Potstickers

I HAD to make these pork and ginger potstickers after finally making my own version of homemade chili oil. I found this Ming Tsai recipe on the Food Network for these little beauties and knew they would pair nicely with the homemade chili oil and our potsticker dipping sauce. My daughter volunteered to help with dinner so she made the dipping sauce and prepared each and every potsticker. All I had to do was cook them! Not only did the postickers turn out delicious but so was the dipping sauce and chili oil. I have to say, my very favorite part of the meal was cooking with my daughter!!!

Make Potsticker dipping sauce, if desired. Click the link for the recipe.

Place the chopped cabbage in a strainer in the sink then sprinkle with some salt and let sit for 30 minutes. Place the cabbage in a towel and squeeze out any excess water. The dryer the cabbage the better.

Place the cabbage in a large bowl and add the ground pork along with the ginger, garlic. In a small bowl whisk together the egg soy sauce and sesame oil until well combined; add to the bowl of cabbage and meat; mix until well thoroughly combined.

Spoon a tablespoon of the pork mixture into the center of the potsticker wrapper. Wet the top of each potsticker wrap with your fingers or a baster brush dipped in water.

Fold the potsticker to make a moon shape and pinch shut with 5-6 pleats along the side. Really make sure they are sealed, so the filling doesn’t fall out.

Heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a large nonstick pan. Once hot, add the potstickers and cook until the bottoms are just golden brown. Add 1/3 cup of water and cover with a lid. Steam for 4-5 minutes or until the liquid has evaporated and the bottoms are crisp and golden; remove from pan to a serving tray. Repeat with the remainder of potstickers and oil.

Place on a plate and drizzle with a bit of soy sauce and chili oil, to taste, then sprinkle the top with fresh cilantro and toasted sesame seeds. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
