Pot Stickers with Ginger Plum Dipping Sauce

Ingredients for Filling
1-1 1/2 lbs Ground Turkey, Chicken, or Pork
1 cup shredded Cabbage
2 Carrots, diced
1/2 cup Onion, minced
1-2 cloves Garlic, minced
1/2 cup Kale, shredded (optional, I just like to sneak leafy greens in everything!)
1 tsp Sesame Oil
1 tsp Soy Sauce
1 package pre-made Wonton Wrappers


Ingredients for Ginger Plum Dipping Sauce
3 TBS Soy Sauce
2 tsp Sesame Oil
1 tsp Siracha Chili Paste
3 TBS Hoisin Sauce
1 clove crushed Garlic
1 TBS Grated Fresh Ginger

Mix together and add more of any of the ingredients to suit your palate!



 Mix the filling ingredients in a large bowl.
Place about 1-2tsp of filling in center of wonton wrappers. (Using your hands works best!)
Wet the edges of the wonton and pinch it together like a little pouches.

Raw Pot Stickers waiting to go in the steamer.

There are TWO WAYS to cook these little guys!
Steaming
or
Frying

(I prefer steamed because they are so delicate but my husband likes them fried...of course! So I make both!)

I steam them in a double-decker steamer pot but I spray the inside with cooking spray before I place the pot stickers in. Then I put the lid on and let them steam for 6-8 minutes.



We fry them in our large electric skillet for about 10 minutes. I put at about 1-2 TBS of cooking oil in the pan before I place the pot stickers in there. After they crisp up a bit, I place the lid on the pan to steam the inside a little.

Then serve with the Ginger Plum Dipping Sauce and enjoy!
