My Sister-In-Law Joanne, is an amazing cook! One time when she and my Brother-In-Law were visiting us from Taiwan, She made potstickers for dinner. These potstickers were flavorful, juicy, and tender, just the way potstickers should be. Of course, nothing compares to Joanne’s potstickers. With that said, take a look at these humble beauties Dominic and I made, and consumed, on New Years Eve. Our family happily snacked our way into the 2013, and our girls absolutely loved them.
An hour or so after we began the process, and the last potsticker was in one of our belly’s, Marjie asked when we were going to have dinner. I must have just looked at her in satiated, drowsy disbelief. Seriously folks, we had just consumed about thirty pork filled dumplings, as a family. My little Marjie sure does have an appetite. I totally get it though, because the thing about potstickers is they are so pillowy, succulent, and delicious, that you eat tons of them. About a half an hour to one hour after you are finished, you can turn around and eat tons more.
After wrapping the first few potstickers, you will get the hang of it. I found that a teaspoon of filling was the perfect amount. Keep a warm, slightly damp towel over the package after you take each wrapper out, to prevent the remaining wrappers from drying out. There will be one or two wrappers that are a little thicker than the rest, and will be harder to work with. Do your best, and press on regardless.
When you are steaming these potstickers, be very careful when you pour the water in the pan with the oil. Partially keep the lid on the pan, pour the water in a little opening, and quickly replace the lid.
These wonton wrappers are so versatile. Don’t stop at potstickers, these wonton wrappers make beautiful ravioli, mini egg rolls, and mini lasagna’s too. Hope you make and enjoy these potstickers as much as my family, and I do.
