I like this method of cooking the potstickers better than the boil and then brown method. However, when cooking until tender, some of the potstickers became a bit overcooked/browned on one side, even over a fairly low heat. Also, we would have preferred a spicier sauce. Will use this recipe again and 'play' with the sauce ingredients a bit.

This made for a great lunch today! I added in a few sesame seeds with the dipping sauce, and it was fabulous! (Re-reviewing because I forgot the stars the first time!

This is almost the same as my sauce - the exception is I prefer it spicier. If you do as well, add about 1/4 tsp of Sambal Ollek - ground fresh Chili paste. It's really spicy stuff, so us it sparingly; you can always add more to increase the spice! Enjoy.
