These Potstickers with Sesame Ground Pork are made with ground pork, garlic, ginger, eggs, and wonton wrappers.
I miss NYC dumplings with the passion ever since I left the big apple. Two months ago, I made Pan Fried dumplings with homemade dough, but it was so hard for me to thin the dough out with just a roller. I ended up buying wonton wrappers, which are LIFE CHANGING, and they are the exact thickness I needed!
How to make Potstickers with Sesame Ground Pork
In a large bowl, add the ground pork, garlic, ginger, scallions, sesame oil, soy sauce and beaten egg and combine. Refrigerate until chilled, about an hour. This is your filling!
Assemble the potstickers. Lay the wonton wrappers out on a clean work surface. Working with one at a time, spoon 1 tablespoon filling onto the center of the wrapper. Brush water around the edges, then fold the wrapper over the filling to create a half-moon, pinching the edges together to seal. Repeat with the remaining filling and wrappers.
In a large thick pan (with a cover), heat up oil over medium-high heat. Place the potstickers flat side down, in the hot oil. Cook about 2-3 minutes, or until golden brown on the bottom (You can check with tongs). Pour in ¼ cup of water and immediately cover the skillet with a tight-fitting lid. Reduce heat to medium-low and steam for about 3-4 minutes. Uncover and continue cooking until the water evaporates (if necessary), another 1-2 minutes. Transfer to a dish and repeat with the remaining potstickers.
Combine the soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil and red pepper flakes - this is your dipping sauce!
Serve the potstickers with the dipping sauce!
