Easy and Delicious Pot Stickers

Recipe by Pismo
READY IN: 30mins




  • In a medium bowl, toss cabbage with 1/4-1/2 teaspoon salt; let stand 10 minutes.
  • Wrap cabbage in a double layer of paper towels; firmly squeeze out excess liquid.
  • Return cabbage to bowl and add pork, 3 finely chopped scallions, ginger, soy sauce, and sesame oil.
  • Mix well with a fork or use your hands.
  • Work with one wrapper at a time, and keep the rest covered with a damp towel.
  • Spoon one level teaspoon of filling in center (if you try to use more, the wrappers won't seal right or may tear).
  • With dampened fingers, wet the four edges.
  • Fold wrapper in half over filling to make a triangle, making sure the ends meet and filling is centered; press edges down firmly to seal (sometimes I bring all four corners together to make a little pouch instead of a triangle, not as pretty, but faster!).
  • Transfer to an oiled plate; cover with a damp towel to keep moist.
  • Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling (Refrigerate leftover filling up to 2 days).
  • In a 12-inch nonstick skillet with a tight-fitting lid, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat.
  • Add half the wontons and cook, turning once, until lightly browned, about 1 minute per side.
  • Carefully add 1/2 cup water (oil may sputter), cover, and steam until translucent and just cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Repeat with remaining tablespoon oil and wontons.
  • Serve with soy sauce or your favorite dipping sauce.
