Ingredients

Pot Stickers

  • 20 wonton wrappers
  • 2 tablespoon green onions sliced thin
  • 8 ounces pork sausage*
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 1 teaspoon hoisin sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoon water for sealing wontons
  • 2 tablespoon coconut oil for frying

Sauce

  • 1/4 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • pench of red pepper flakes

Instructions

Pot Stickers

  • Combine sausage, ginger, hoisin, garlic and green onions.
  • Mix until well combined. I've found this is easier mixed with a fork.
  • Lay wontons out on a clean surface.
  • Fill center of wonton with approximately 1/2 tablespoon pork mixture.
  • Gather edges of wrapper together over filling. Wet your fingertips with the water and seal wonton around pork. Press edges of wrapper together, enclosing the filling completely.
  • Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling.
  • Place a collapsible metal steamer rack or collander in a large wide pot. Fill pot with 1-inch water. Spray steamer rack with nonstick spray.
  • Bring water to a boil.
  • Working in batches, arrange dumplings on rack 1-inch apart. Cover pot with lid and steam dumplings until cooked thoroughly, about 8 minutes.
  • Watch the water level and add more as needed.
  • Transfer dumplings to a platter
  • To fry, add 1 tablespoon coconut oil to a saute' pan or use a non-stick pan without oil. Fry on medium high until golden.
  • Transfer to a platter and serve with dipping sauce.

Sauce

  • In a small bowl, whisk all sauce ingredients together. Serve with potstickers.

Notes

*If you choose to use ground turkey or ground chicken add 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper to the recipeWontons are very sticky when wet. Do not let them touch, espcially while steaming. If you have a small spring-release scoop, that would be perfect to use to scoop the filling out in equal portions.To freeze, place uncooked pot stickers in a single layer on a baking sheet overnight. Transfer to a freezer bag after frozen. Thaw in the refrigerator, then cook as directed.Feel free to skip the last step of frying, they pot stickers are wonderful simply steamed.
