Pork Potstickers Recipe

Potstickers (dumplings) are really easy to make at home and are so versatile with the filling that can be used. These dumplings are filled with a ground pork, cabbage and mushrooms filling.

Potstickers are sometimes confused with gyozas. Though prepared slightly different, both are wonderful and so much better than takeout.

Step-by-step instructions how to make and assemble pot stickers.

Potstickers are best when served with a sauce for dipping. For the sauce we just used low-sodium soy sauce and freshly grated ginger. The potstickers are also great to serve with Kani Salad.

can I freeze potstickers?

Yes, potstickers are great to freeze. Layout assembled stickers on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Once they are frozen, transfer to a freezer bag. They can stay fresh up to 3 months in the freezer.

To cook, add frozen dumplings to skillets per instructions, they will just need a little longer to cook at a lower heat.

    Hi Valentina,i really want to try out this recipe,but im wondering were do you buy wonton wrappers?..Is it the same thing as spring roll pastry sheets?

      Hi there. Most bigger grocery stores carry them. They are in the same location as the spring roll sheets. Wonton wrappers work better as they cook better, but if you cannot find them, spring roll sheets will work as well. I hope to hear feedback if you give them a try. 🙂
