Pork Pot Stickers Recipe

This is a great recipe to have on hand for parties and get togethers.  It’s great as a starter and can even be served as a main dish.  They are super easy to make and pack a huge punch of flavor.  These are also great for kids.  They can eat them with their hands or try chopsticks, either way, they’ll have fun eating them . I have two boys and they completely devoured them within the 5 minutes they sat down to eat dinner.  There is minimal mess to clean up since most of it ended up in their mouth rather than the floor.  That’s when you know you have a great recipe.  And you don’t have to feel super guilty about eating them.  Ginger has a bunch of different health benefits such as alleviating gastrointestinal distress, inflammatory issues and can also work as an anti oxidant.

Ingredients
  1. 1 LB of ground pork
  2. 1/2 Cup of diced white onion
  3. 4 TBSP of minced ginger
  4. 2 TBSP of minced garlic
  5. 8 TBSP of chopped green onion
  6. 2 TSP soy sauce
  7. 1/2 TSP sesame oil
  8. Dash of salt and pepper
  9. 20 Wonton wrappers you can use square wonton wrappers or circular wrappers. For this recipe the square wrappers were used.
  10. 1 egg (beaten)
  11. 2 TBSP oil
Instructions
  1. In a large pan/wok mix together pork, onion, ginger, garlic, green onion, soy sauce, sesame oil and salt and pepper.
  2. Mix until all ingredients are combined well and the pork is completely cooked.
  3. Add the chives, garlic and ginger.
  4. In medium pot bring 2-3 quarts of water to a boil.
  5. Place a dollop of the mixture in the middle of the wonton wrapper.
  6. Brush the sides with the egg mixture then fold in half.
  7. Once all of the wontons are filled and closed boil them for 1 minute.
  8. Promptly remove them from the water and saute in heated pan with oil.
  9. Saute on both sides until golden brown.
Notes
  1. To make sure that your pot stickers stay together and don’t fall apart, be sure to get them straight to the pan to be browned. Also make sure that you don’t over stuff them. If you place to much of the mixture into the wonton it won’t close and will keep popping open.
  2. Be sure to use fresh ginger and garlic. It adds depth and carries a lot more flavor then powder or pre minced garlic and ginger.
  3. You can substitute pork with ground beef, turkey, chicken, shrimp crab or even lobster.
  4. Instead of boiling the pot stickers you could steam them.
  5. To give even them even more flavor serve them with a toasted sesame soy sauce. Place a few pinches of sesame seeds in saute pan and toast over med low heat for 2-3 minutes or until you can smell the seeds. Once they are done let them cool for a few minutes. Once cooled add them for 3TBSP of soy sauce.
  6. Try it as a main dish. Just add fried rice as a side or even steamed green beans.

Fun Facts:

Another name for pot sticker is Jiaozi.

They are called Jiaozi  because they were horn shaped and the Chinese word for “horn” is jiao.

Jiaozi is not wonton.  Jiaozi is thicker and more comparable to ravioli.
