  • 1 c shredded cabbage
  • 1/4 c minced ginger
  • 3 large cloves garlic
  • 1/2 jalapeño seeded and finely chopped
  • 1/2 c shredded carrots
  • 1/4 c finely chopped onion
  • 1/2 T salt
  • 2 T soy sauce
  • 1/2 lb ground pork chicken or turkey
  • 2 T cornstarch
  • 1/4 c cilantro chopped
  • 1/4 c chopped scallions
  • 1 pack of round wonton wrappers
  • 1 T cornstarch mixed with 1/4 c water (for the slurry)
  • 1/4 c canola oil


  • Combine all ingredients except the wonton wrapper, 1 T of cornstarch & canola oil in a bowl. Mix well to thoroughly combine.
  • When you are ready to make the potstickers, mix 1 T cornstarch with 1/4 c water to form a slurry.
  • Take one wonton wrapper and brush the slurry around the edges.
  • Place 1 T of filling in the center of the wonton wrapper.
  • Fold the wrapper into a half-moon shape & fold the edges until the dumpling is sealed.
  • Repeat with remaining filling. (Be sure to cover your dumplings to keep them from drying out before cooking them.)
  • Heat 1/4 c canola oil over high heat in a large sauté pan.
  • Sear the pork potstickers hard on the flat side until you have a crisp edge.
  • Add 1/2 c water to the pan and cover immediately to let dumplings steam.
  • Cook until the internal temperature reached 155F.
  • Repeat with the remaining dumplings.
  • Serve fresh with soy sauce to dip.
