Do you always order potsticker dumplings in Asian restaurants? You can make them easily at home using wonton wrappers with this simple homemade potstickers recipe!
These delicious Chinese potstickers are so addictive, you can eat the whole batch in one sitting! Nobody can resist these piping hot and made from scratch potstickers! Imagine grabbing these yummy dumplings and dipping them in soy sauce – mmmm!
You can make you own frozen potstickers by assembling potstickers and then freezing them uncooked. To freeze the potstickers, line a plate with parchment paper (so they won’t stick), put assembled potstickers on parchment paper in a single layer so they are not touching and put in a freezer for 1 hour. Then put the frozen potstickers in a large ziploc bag and put back in a freezer until ready to use. To cook homemade potstickers from frozen, cook them the exact same way as fresh except just add an extra 5 minutes to cooking time. Enjoy!
These homemade potstickers taste so much better than store-bought! This potstickers recipe is very easy and straight-forward, anyone can make them! You can make these potstickers with chicken or pork, depending on your preference. Enjoy!
1 pound ground chicken or pork
1 cup shredded green cabbage
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 green onions, chopped
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp freshly ginger, grated
1 tsp sesame oil
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 package round wonton wrappers (about 45)
Make the filling for the potstickers
Put ground chicken or pork, shredded cabbage, garlic, green onion, ginger, soy sauce and sesame oil in a bowl and mix together until well combined.
Assemble the potstickers
Fill a small bowl with water and set aside.
Arrange wonton wrappers on a work surface like a table or counter.
Put 1 tbsp of filling in the center of each wonton wrapper.
Dip your finger in the water and run around the edges of each wonton wrapper to moisten it.
Fold the wrappers in half over the filling (to create a half-moon shape), then pinch the edges of the wrappers together to seal them.
Cook the potstickers
Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat (to speed up the process, I use 2 frying pans at the same time).
Put the potstickers in a frying pan in a single layer and cook for 2 minutes. Carefully flip potstickers with a spatula. Add ¼ cup of water to the frying pan. Cover and cook for 4 minutes.
