It is fried won ton season. Made some for New Years this year. (Traditionally it was Christmas eve.) I spoke with my sister Jenny yesterday who sent me her Pot Sticker recipe.
- Gyoza wrapper 45 pieces
- Napa Cabbage (or bok choy) 6 leaves (2/3 C)
- Ground pork 1 lb
- Chicken broth powder ½ tsp
- Salt 1 tsp
- Chopped green onion ¼ C
- Sugar ½ tsp
- Grated ginger root 1 tsp
- White pepper ¼ tsp
- Dried black mushroom 3 pieces soaked/diced
- Soy sauce 1 Tbsp
- Sesame oil 2 Tbsp
Blanch cabbage in boiling water w/salt for 2-3 minutes. Cool and squeeze out water. Finely chop. Mix pork with salt, sugar, white pepper, chicken broth powder and soy sauce. Add cabbage, ginger, green onion, mushroom, and sesame oil. Fill wrapper with pork mixture in a half moon shape.
Arrange pot stickers in pan and brown until crust forms, shaking pan occasionally. Add ¼ C hot water with 1 tsp each of sesame oil and vinegar.
Cover and cook until water is absorbed (repeat if desired.) Add a little oil in pan and pan fry until crusts are golden and crispy. Makes about 40-45 pieces. Can freeze after wrapping.
