For the Dumpling Assembly and Cooking

Method

  • Step 1

    To large bowl, add pork, scallions, cilantro, soy sauce, sesame oil, shao xing wine, black rice vinegar, egg, garlic and spices. Get in there with your hands and mix all of the ingredients together. Set aside.

  • Step 2

    Holding one of your round wonton wrappers, place a spoonful of the filling inside. Make sure you leave enough space to fold your dumpling. Dip your finger in the bowl of water and wet the outer edges of the wrapper.

  • Step 3

    Fold the dumpling in half like a taco. Pull the front edge forward and pinch to crease, if the pleat isn't holding, you can use more water to seal. Continue pleats on the side you started until you reach the edge (should only be 1 or 2 more pleats). At the edge of the dumpling there will be a small air pocket. Poke that in with your thumb and press together. Close all air pockets at the edges to make sure none of that delicious wonton filling seeps out!

  • Step 4

    Pull the front edge forward and pinch to crease, if the pleat isn't holding, you can use more water to seal. Continue pleats on the side you started until you reach the edge (should only be 1 or 2 more pleats). At the edge of the dumpling there will be a small air pocket. Poke that in with your thumb and press together. Some flour on your cutting board/table will help to make sure these potstickers aren't super stuck to your hands. Repeat until all the filling is used up.

  • Step 5

    To pan fry, add 3 tablespoons of canola oil to a skillet on medium heat. Once the oil is hot, place the dumplings, making sure that they are not touching. Fry them for 5-6 minutes, or until the bottoms develop a crispy brown surface. Now, add a splash of water and cover with a lid.

  • Step 6

    Once the water has evaporated, remove the lid and let the dumplings pan-fry a little longer to have a nice crispy bottom.
