Pot Stickers

Pot Stickers:
1 package wonton/dumpling wrappers (2-inch circle)
1/2 lb cabbage (Napa, Bok Choy) chopped
1 lb ground pork
2 t fresh or bottled ginger
1 stalk finely chopped green onions
1 t. salt
1 t. soy sauce
1 t. rice wine vinegar
1 t. sesame oil

Dipping sauce:

1 T. soy sauce
1 t. vinegar (white or balsamic)
1 t. brown sugar
1 clove minced garlic
Few drops of sesame oil

1. Dice ¼ of the cabbage into very tiny pieces. In a large bowl add all ingredients except for wonton wrappers and dipping sauce, mix well with hands.

2. Lightly flour 2 cookie sheets, get out a small bowl of water to dip your fingers in.

3. Wet one side of the wonton wrapper, spoon 2 t. filling on the center of the wonton wrapper. Fold in half and pinch edges closed. Place on a lightly floured cookie sheet. Continue until mixture is gone.

4. Freeze on lightly floured cookie sheet for 1-2 hrs. Then put all wontons into a big zip-top bag. Pull out pot stickers as needed for dinner.

To serve: Heat 2-3 T oil in a non-stick skillet. Place the wontons into the skillet on high heat (wait for oil to be hot before placing them in.) Add water to cover the pouches one-third of the way up. Cover and cook until liquid is gone. Flip and cook reverse side until crispy. Serve hot and dip into sauce to eat.
