We made potstickers at my mother in law’s house last night and took some pretty cool pictures. I believe I have posted the recipe for them here before but I will repost it because they are that good! 😀

Episode: Wanton Ways
1/2 pound ground pork
1/4 cup finely chopped scallions
2 tablespoons finely chopped red bell pepper (I used a green bell pepper from my garden.)
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 teaspoons ketchup
1 teaspoon yellow mustard
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon light brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
35 to 40 small wonton wrappers
Water, for sealing wontons
3 to 4 tablespoons vegetable oil, for frying
1 1/3 cups chicken stock, divided
Preheat oven to 200 degrees F.
Combine the first 11 ingredients in a medium-size mixing bowl (pork through cayenne). Set aside.
To form the dumplings, remove 1 wonton wrapper from the package, covering the others with a damp cloth. Brush 2 of the edges of the wrapper lightly with water. Place 1/2 rounded teaspoon of the pork mixture in the center of the wrapper. Fold over, seal edges, and shape as desired. Set on a sheet pan and cover with a damp cloth. Repeat procedure until all of the filling is gone.
These potstickers were awesome and we ended up eating all of them (there were 5 or 6 of us eating at any given time) I suggest if you are going to make them, do a double batch and freeze them for when you get hungry for potstickers. I folded them differently for this dinner and I think they came out just as good! 😀
We also did some BBQ pork buns for an appetizer!
