Pork Pot Stickers with Dipping Sauce

Pork Potstickers

These tasty little teasers were a delicious snack before dinner last night.

They’re fairly easy to make and were a hit at my house. I hope you enjoy them as much as we did.

Makes 20 pot stickers and about 1/3 cup dipping sauce.

  • 4 ounces ground pork
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped green onions
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped red pepper
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons teriyaki sauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon sherry
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 20 wonton wrappers
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil, divided
  • 1 cup water

For the dipping sauce:

  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1/8 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon red curry paste
  • 1/8 teaspoon chili sauce
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/ tablespoon sliced green onion
  1. Combine the pork, green onions, red pepper, 1 tablespoon water, teriyaki sauce, ginger, sesame oil, and cornstarch in a small bowl.  Stir until smooth.
  2. Place 1 teaspoon of the pork mixture in the center of a wonton wrapper. Wet the edge of the wrapper, fold over, and seal the edges in a triangular shape.  Do the same for each of the 20 dumplings.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon canola oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 10 pot stickers to the pan. Cook for 2 minutes and flip the dumplings. Cook for 1 minute.
  4. Carefully pour 1/2 cup water in the pan. Cover the pan and cook for 4 minutes. Uncover the pan and cook for approximately 2 minutes until the liquid evaporates. Remove the pot stickers to a warm serving dish.
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 for the remaining 10 dumplings.
  6. To make the dipping sauce, combine soy sauce, water, rice vinegar, ginger powder, curry paste, chili sauce,  brown sugar, minced garlic, and 1 tablespoon sliced green onion in a small bowl.  Stir well.
  7. Spoon a bit of dipping sauce over the plated pot stickers and pass the bowl for further dipping.
