Pot Stickers

17 May

Recipe from http://allrecipes.com/recipe/pot-stickers-traditional

    • 1/2 pound turkey
    • 1/2 medium head cabbage, finely chopped
    • 1 green onion, finely chopped
    • 2 slices fresh ginger root, finely chopped
    • 2 water chestnuts, drained and finely chopped
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon white sugar
    • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
    • 1 (14 ounce) package wonton wrappers
    • 5 tablespoons vegetable oil
    • 3/4 cup water
    • 1 tablespoon chili oil
    • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
    • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar

Crumble turkey into a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain and set aside.

In a medium bowl, mix together the turkey, cabbage, green onion, ginger, water chestnuts, salt, sugar and sesame oil. Chill in the refrigerator 6 to 8 hours, or overnight.

Place a tablespoon of the turkey mixture into each of the wonton wrappers. Fold the wrappers, and seal the edges with a moistened fork.

In a large, deep skillet, heat 3 tablespoons vegetable oil over medium high heat. Place the pot stickers into the oil seam sides up. Heat 30 seconds to a minute. Pour water into the skillet. Gently boil 7 to 8 minutes, until oil and water begins to sizzle, then add remaining oil. When the bottoms begin to brown, remove pot stickers from heat.

In a small serving bowl, mix together the chili oil, soy sauce, and vinegar, adjusting proportions to taste.


I managed to make beautiful pot stickers that stuck and then fell apart in my skillet. Next time I will be more careful and use a better skillet.
