Pot Stickers

I thought it might be nice to follow up last week's post on crab rangoon with my recipe for homemade potstickers. These little dumplings are filled with the tastiest mixture of pork, ginger, garlic and a few other simple ingredients and are, like the crab rangoon, much easier to make than one would think. I usually buy one package of won ton wrappers and make a batch of both crab rangoon and potstickers. So tasty!
1 package of wonton wrappers
1/3 lb. ground pork
1/2 tsp. finely diced ginger
1 clove finely diced garlic
1 tsp. soy sauce
1/2 green onion, finely diced
1/4 cup chicken broth
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
1/3 cup cold water mixed with 3 tbsp. cornstarch

Combine ingredients (except for oil, broth and cornstarch/water mixture). Chill for 15 minutes. Place a dollop of the mixture in the center of the wrapper and fold edges, sealing them with the water cornstarch mixture (use your finger for this). Pan fry until golden, 2-3 minutes per side. Add broth and cover, reducing heat to low. Simmer 4-5 minutes. Remove lid and turn the heat back up to medium high. Fry for another minute until edges are cripsy. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate. Serve immediately.
