Homemade Pot Stickers by theresahelmer Homemade Pot Stickers by theresahelmer
To make pot stickers:

:bulletgreen: Ingredients:

~1 Ground Chicken breast (or meat of your choice, or you can opt out meat, make this into vegetarian pot stickers). If you are using pork or beef, not too lean are recommended, gives the pot stickers more flavor.

~ 8 large shrimp (shelled and divined)

~ 1/2 Cabbage or vegetable of your choice.

~ 1 Tablespoon chopped green onion (some of you might call it green scallion)

~ 1 Teaspoon chopped ginger

~ 1/2 teaspoon 5-spice powder (you can now buy this from your local grocery store, if you do not have it, okay too!)

~ 2 Tablespoon soy sauce (light or dark, it does not matter)

~ 2 Tablespoon sesame oil

~ 2 teaspoon salt

~ 1 Tablespoon corn starch

~ 1 package store bought pot sticker wrappers

~ 3 Tablespoon cooking oil (just use whatever you have, excluding olive oil)

~ 2/3 Cup water

:bulletgreen: Directions:

1. Place chicken in bowl, add shrimp (cut into small pieces), cabbage (see 2 on how to prepare this), green onion, ginger, 5-spice powder, soy sauce, sesame oil, corn starch and salt. Mix thoroughly until thickened.

2. Cook cabbage in boiling water for about 2 minutes, plunge into cold water. Squeeze dry and chop finely. Squeeze dry again.

3. See this video on how to fold pot stickers into shape - www.youtube.com/watch?v=_UhkSK…

4. Heat a flat frying pan until very hot, add oil, when oil is hot, add pot stickers (do not overlap), fry until bottom is golden (about 1 minute) on medium high heat, add 2/3 cup water, cover and cook until water has entirely evaporated.

5. For dipping sauce - I generally make my own. These days you can buy the dipping sauce from stores. But soy sauce and sesame oil mixture will do just fine, oh...and a touch of vinegar. A little acidity always makes the food taste better.

May I ask? Why do you communicate with me in Japanese?

You know, you're the first person to ask me that. My keyboard is set to hyoujungo by default。I apologize if it offends you。It is a pain setting and unsetting the languages。Apologies。

I read the description and saw the link to a Tumblr account, but I must say, I didn't think this link could send to a recipe page ! I don't know much about Tumblr and in my mind, this site is more about sharing pictures.
Sorry for the mistake and thank you for sharing your recipe !

Wow, looks delicious. Are there vegetarian or seafood alternatives? I know it's usually made with pork or beef correct? If you have a recipe that would be great to :]]

It has pigmeat inside, doesn't it?

Last week I bought that on the chinese market in my town. I first steamed it, fried it with just a little of oil and then dipped it into the bittersweet sauce, yummy :B

I'm sorry if I didn't know that essential thing, pardon my ignorance, maybe it's due to the fact that I'm not english and I just tried to express myself as I could :)

well said, since you do not understand the language as well as you could have, then it is imperative you speak with responsibility instead of making comments like "interesting" and etc...it can come across as being condescending

My grandmother used to make something like this called 'tay' (in her dialect) it was similar but the dough was white. Have you come across a recipe like that?
