Ingredients

1 lb. Ground Pork

2 tbsp. Soy Sauce, low sodium

1 Garlic Clove, grated or finely minced

2 tbsp. Green Onions, finely sliced

1 tsp. Kosher Salt

¼ tsp. Ginger Powder

¼ tsp. Black Pepper

12 oz. Package of Wonton Wrappers (approx. 48 wrappers)

Oil for frying (Canola Oil works well)

1- 2 cups Chicken Broth – ¼ cup per batch

 

You will also need

A bowl of water to seal the potstickers​

Moistened paper towels or a damp kitchen towel to lay on the unused wrappers and the pork potstickers to prevent the dough from drying out

 

Instructions

​Mix the ground pork, soy sauce, garlic clove, green onions, salt, ginger and black pepper in a bowl.  In order to incorporate all the ingredients well, it’s best to use your hands.

Build your pork potstickers as follows

 

  • Work with one wrapper at a time, cover unused wrappers with a moist towel to prevent them from drying out.

 

  • Place a rounded teaspoon of the pork mixture in the center of the wrapper.  Do not overfill the wrapper, it will rip.

 

  • Moisten the edges of the wrapper with water.

 

  • Fold over the wrapper, from corner to corner, to form a triangle.

 

  • Press the edges gently to seal, removing any air bubbles as you go.

 

  • Fold the sides in and crimp the middle to form a fan shape.

 

  • Set aside under a moist towel and repeat until all the ground pork mixture has been used.

 

Fry the pork potstickers

Heat about 1 tsp. of oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat; use just enough oil to barely coat the bottom of the skillet. Add 8-12 potstickers to the skillet at a time, do not over-crowd the pan. Fry for about 2-3 minutes until the bottoms are golden brown. Add about ¼ cup of chicken broth, cover and lower heat to medium-low. Cook the potstickers for 3-5 minutes, until most of the liquid has evaporated. Remove the potstickers from the skillet. Take the internal temperature of one or two, to ensure it’s at least 165°F on an instant read thermometer.

 

Repeat the steps above until all the potstickers are cooked. Clean the skillet between batches.
