Pot Stickers

Pot Stickers are one of my childhood favorites.

Whenever my mother asked me what I wanted for dinner, 9 out of 10 times I would say “Pot stickers!”

I loved to eat pot stickers for sure, but I also enjoyed very much helping my mother make them.

We would sit side by side at the kitchen table, and we would make hundreds of them together.

Now I make my pot stickers by myself. I feel a bit lonely, but it’s not too bad. It’s actually one of my zen moments (lol).

A mixture of cabbage and ground meat is the traditional filling, but this time I used napa cabbage in place of regular cabbage.

Cabbage and napa cabbage both work just fine if you ask me, but using napa cabbage is easier because you don’t have to cook it first.

Pot Stickers

filling
– 1/2 lb ground beef
– 1/2 lb ground pork
– 2 cups chopped napa cabbage
– 1/4 cup chopped green onion
– 2 cloves garlic, chopped
– 1/2 teaspoon chopped ginger
– 1~2 teaspoons soy sauce
– 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
– salt and pepper
1 package pot sticker wrappers
canola oil
sauce
– 1 tablespoon soy sauce
– 1 tablespoon white vinegar

1. Make filling. Combine all the ingredients.
2. Wrap filling in wrappers.
3. Heat oil in a large pan. Place dumplings in the pan. Cook for a few minutes until the bottoms are browned. Add about 1/2 cup of water. Cover and cook over medium heat for a few minutes until the water is almost gone.

白菜餃子

キャベツの代わりに白菜が入った以外には何といって変わったことのない餃子です。

餃子、やっぱり好きなのです。

子供のころから、何が食べたいか、と聞かれると、いつも、餃子!、と答えるような子供でした。

餃子作りは、キッチンでの手伝いの中では多分一番好きだった作業。

これは今でも同じで、餃子を作るのは大好き。

餃子の皮1袋、全部一気に作ります。

今回は、牛肉と豚肉と半々。

こっちでは、合いびき肉としてすでに混ざったものは売っていないので、豚ひき肉と牛ひき肉を別々に買って混ぜます。

野菜たっぷり、ひき肉と半々ぐらいの白菜を入れて。

餃子はテリーも大好き。

二人で沢山食べました。

  1. These are absolutely lovely! Growing up, I always heard that you can tell how beautiful your children will be by well your wrap your pot stickers – I hope I’m not being too presumptuous, but you must have/will have GORGEOUS children!

    Anyway, the recipe looks divine! Pot stickers are one of my favorites too! I’m looking forward to making these!

    Kathleen,

    Thank you for your wonderful comment! I don’t have kids, but if I did, this is definitely one of the things I would love to teach them how to make.
