Recipe type: Pot Stickers
Cuisine: Asian
Serves: 36
  • 1 pkg pot sticker wrappers (36 count)
  • 1 lb ground beef, pork, chicken, or turkey
  • 1 large carrot, grated or finely chopped in a food processor
  • ½ small zucchini, grated or finely chopped in a food processor
  • 3 green onions, finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp sweet chili sauce
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • ½ tsp ginger, scant
  • ⅛ tsp ground black pepper and ⅛ tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp canola or vegetable oil
  • ½-3/4 cup water
  • Soy sauce
  • Sweet chili sauce
  1. In a large bowl, combine ground meat, grated carrot, grated zucchini, finely chopped green onions, sweet chili sauce, soy sauce, ginger, salt, and black pepper. Mix together thoroughly by hand.
  2. Place about 1½ tbsp of mixture on half of each wonton wrapper.
  3. Dip your finger in water and moisten 1 edge of a wonton wrapper. Fold it over and pinch the wonton wrapper shut. Make a few folds along the edge and pinch them to give them the pot sticker look. Repeat for all 36 wonton wrappers.
  4. In a large frying pan with a lid, heat the 3 tbsp of oil. Place a layer of pot stickers in the pan and cook for 1-2 minutes until browned on that side.
  5. Flip pot stickers over and add ½ cup of water. Put the lid on the frying pan immediately. This steams the pot stickers. Leave the lid on for 5-7 minutes. Watch to see if water starts to evaporate. If it does, add a little more water.
  6. Repeat cooking process for the rest of the pot stickers. Depending on how large the frying pan is, you may need to do two or three batches.
  7. For the dipping sauce, I mix half soy sauce half sweet chili sauce.
  8. Serve hot with dipping sauce.
