I found this recipe from Ming Tsai on the Food Network site and couldn’t wait to make them. It was a bit time consuming but so worth it because they turned out fantastic. These were truly the best tasting pot stickers I have ever had. To save time, I used a gyoza dipping sauce and sweet chili sauce that I already had in the refrigerator for dipping. My whole family really loved these pot stickers, especially my daughter, who could have eaten the whole batch by herself. I served these vegetable pot stickers with the Asian Style Pork Chops and Sesame Green Beansfor a healthy and delicious dinner. I highly recommend this recipe.Vegetable Pot Stickers: Adapted recipe and photos by For the Love of Cooking.net Original recipe by Ming Tsai ~ Food Network
- 2 tsp canola oil
- 1/2 small red onion, diced
- 1 cup shitake mushrooms, sliced
- 1 cup of white savoy cabbage, chopped finely
- 1 cup of carrots, shredded
- 1/4 cup of chives, chopped
- 1 tbsp fresh ginger, minced
- 1 clove of garlic, minced
- Sea salt and white pepper, to taste
- 1 tsp sesame oil
- 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
- 20 round gyoza wraps
- Olive oil cooking spray
Heat the canola oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Once it is hot add the onion and mushrooms and cook for 3-4 minutes; add the cabbage, carrots, chives, ginger, and garlic. Season with sea salt and white pepper, to taste and cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring often. Taste and re-season if needed. Set aside to let the mixture cool down. Once the mixture has cooled, add the sesame oil and cilantro then mix well.
Spread out the pot sticker wraps onto wax paper then scoop a small teaspoon full of filling onto the center of each wrap.
Wet the top of each pot sticker wrap with a baster brush dipped in water. Fold the pot sticker to make a moon shape and pinch shut with 3 to 4 pleats along the side. Really make sure they are sealed, so the filling doesn’t fall out. Repeat this process until all the mixture is used up.
Heat a large non stick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium high heat. Once the pan is HOT add the pot stickers, and cook until the bottoms are browned, about 3 minutes. Add 1/4 cup of water and immediately cover with a lid to steam the pot stickers. Carefully watch the pot stickers and completely evaporate the water so the bottom gets crispy again and sticks to the skillet. Serve immediately with dipping sauce. Enjoy.
