Pork Pot Stickers

Makes 24

1/2 lb. Kowalski’s Ground Pork

1 tbsp. cold water

1 1/2 tsp. dry sherry

1 1/2 tsp. soy sauce

1 1/2 tsp. sesame oil

1/2 tsp. kosher salt

1 1/2 cups napa cabbage, finely chopped

24 round pot sticker wrappers

2 tbsp. canola oil, divided

1 cup water

- Kalbi Dipping Sauce (recipe link below)


Mix first seven ingredients in a medium mixing bowl. Spoon approximately 2 tsp. filling on each pot sticker wrapper. Moisten the edges of the filled side of each wrapper with a fingertip dipped in water. Pinch edges tightly together to form a half moon shape. Keep filled and formed pot stickers covered with a damp towel while making the remainder. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tbsp. oil over medium-low heat. Arrange dumplings on their sides, touching but just barely overlapping each other. Cook until pot sticker bottoms are light brown (about 10 min.). Increase heat to medium; add water. Cook, partially covered, until all of the liquid is evaporated (about 10 min.); uncover and drizzle oil around the inside edge of pan. Fry, uncovered, until bottoms are dark brown (about 3 min.). Loosen around the edges of the pan with a spatula; invert onto a serving plate. Serve with Kalbi Dipping Sauce.
