How to make Pot Stickers! This recipe makes the most savory bite with just a hint of sweet from the hoisin and heat from chili sauce. They have a crunchy bite with the addition of water chestnuts. Trust me - these are 100 times better than take out!
Slice the onions and mince the garlic.
Lightly mix all of the ingredients together (except the wonton wrappers). Don't over-mix, just make sure everything is combined.
Lay out the wonton wrappers on a board. Have a small bowl of water nearby.
Place one teaspoon of mixture in the middle of each wrapper. Dip your finger into the water bowl and run it all the way around the edge of the wrapper.
Fold the edges together and seal. Set finished Pot Stickers aside. Crimp edges if desired. Complete the process with all of the pot stickers.
Find a pot your bamboo steamer will fit in. Fill with about two inches of water. Turn on high and bring to a boil.
*While the water is coming to a boil, line the bamboo steamer with lettuce or kale leaves. Set the pot stickers on the lettuce. Do not overcrowd.
Steam for 15-20 minutes until the pot stickers are cooked. Serve immediately with your favorite dipping sauce, enjoy!
It's best not to overfill the pot stickers or they will burst when cooking. Depending on how large you fill them, this recipe makes 36-40 pot stickers.
