Pork Pot Stickers
1 pkg. ground pork (avoid lean, because the fat is what makes them bursting with juice)
Napa Cabbage (chopped, about 2 cups)
Fresh Ginger (grated, about 2 tablespoons)
2-3 garlic cloves (minced)
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons sesame oil
Salt (about 1/2 tablespoon)
1 pkg of gyoza/potsticker wrappers
Add all the ingredients in a bowl and mix together.
For the ginger I take about one chunk. Then I peel it and grate it over the bowl.
For the garlic, I take each clove and crush it with my knife. This causes the peeling to just fall off easily then I mince it up and add to the bowl.
I have a bowl of water handy and dip my finger in the water and spread it around the edge. Just enough to dampen the dough. This makes it stick together easier when you fold it.
Crease only one side of the dumpling and pinch it together. Having only one side creased creates the curve so they will stand up nicely in the pan.
Here are some other recipes we found and made this year to go with our potstickers.
