Pot Stickers Pot Stickers recipe with a pork filling Pot Stickers recipe Hi Guys! I’d like to get straight to dumplings, if that’s okay… because I.LOVE.DUMPLINGS. (that should be a shirt, by the way…just a thought) Yes, we have Pot Stickers for you today and they’re awesome. :) I love pot stickers because they’re as basic as it comes, when it comes to dumplings, and it’s the type of snack you can fill with whatever suits your taste!

Today’s Pot Stickers recipe is sort of a mixed bag of Asian ingredients, but the dipping sauce is very Korean. Choganjang is a Korean condiment generally made of 3 parts soy sauce and 1 part vinegar. It’s great to use for dipping pot stickers, but I really love adding a spoonful to hot, kimchi dumpling and rice cake soup… so good! As we get into chillier months you can guarantee we’ll be sharing said soup with all you lovelies.

Not only is this recipe super easy to throw together, but it’s quick and delicious! These little guys also freeze really well. I love making a giant batch of these pot stickers and freezing them for whenever I want them. You can also make them slightly healthier by going full steam on them and skipping the pan frying all together. You can also skip out on “fancy” crimping and go straight-edged if you prefer. Enjoy! xx, Jenny

    I’m a HUGE dumpling fan as well. Went to the NYC Dumpling Festival this weekend. Thanks for posting this – I’m definitely going to give them a try!

    omg…. I. LOVE. DUMPLINGS….. like REALLY, REALLY love ’em. If you make that shirt, I am so buying one. My friends and family always tease me when we go to certain restaurants, because I always say “I’ll have the dumplings” and they’re like, “okay we could share those for an appetizer” and I’m like “do whatever YOU want for an appetizer, I’m having them for Dinner! and oh yeah, I am NOT sharing….” I have a basic filling that I use (it’s delicious…) and I usually keep a bag of frozen dumplings in my freezer, but alas, my freezer is currently bare of dumplings, so I can’t wait to try your recipe, because frankly there’s (almost) no such thing as a bad dumpling (I had one once at a Thai restaurant.. I don’t want to talk about it). What I can’t believe I haven’t tried is a Korean dipping sauce. I can’t wait to do this! Yum and thanks!!

    I do have a tee that says “I <3 Pot Stickers" from the mid 2000s.

  7. Quyen Not Specified Not Specified

    I have fond memories making potstickers as a kid. Each member in the family had their role in the potsticker assembly line! It was so much fun, but lots of work!

  8. Rowena Not Specified Not Specified

    I only started making my own pot stickers at home recently and realized how easy they are. I need to try it with Choganjang next time.

    Just this weekend, my boyfriend and I decided that we have to learn to make potstickers. And lo and behold.
    It’s a sign.

  10. Sophie Not Specified Not Specified

    OH MAH GAH! I love dumplings also, a little too much maybe — NAHHH, no such thing as too much dumpling love :) I live on the West coast and there are some good dumplings around here, but the last time I visited New York I ate sooooo many dumplings! Japanese dumpling, Korean, Tibetan, everything was so so so good. These sound absolutely delicious and your choganjang looks INSANE! Bravo, ladies! Can’t wait to make a wholllllle bunch of these beauties.

    Looks delicious! If you want to freeze them do you cook them first or freeze them raw?

  13. Cate @ Chez CateyLou Not Specified Not Specified

    These look delicious! I am really into Asian food these days, so this looks like the perfect recipe for me to try!

  14. Annie @ ciaochowbambina Not Specified Not Specified

    I. Love. Pot Stickers. Thank you.

  15. Tasha Not Specified Not Specified

    I don’t eat pork so I was wondering if I could swap it out for shrimp. Would I need to adjust anything else in the recipe if I did this?

    • Jenny Park Not Specified Not Specified

      Yes you can, I would just make sure to chop the shrimp up pretty fine. I would also skip the whole egg and only add the egg white, as the yolk would make the shrimp filling a little on the heavy/gummy side. Good luck!

  17. angela@mykikicake Not Specified Not Specified

    Love pot stickers or any type of dumpling. Looking at these makes me hungry!

  18. Jamie | Jamie's Recipes Not Specified Not Specified

    I have been obsessed with dumplings this summer. I went a little crazy at our Asian market and purchased six different bags of frozen dumplings. My favorite is one with kimchi in it. I need to replicate it.

    Your dumplings are beautiful. Mine never come out that gorgeous.

  19. Tieghan Not Specified Not Specified

    I love pot stickers and actually made my own around christmas last year. SO freaking amazing! I can’t wait to try these!

  20. Della Not Specified Not Specified

    These look and sound awesome!!! Is the filling mixture the traditional kind that is served in small town Chinese restaurants? The recipe sounds so easy, we really have no excuse for not making them anymore!!!! Thanx everso for the prodding!

  21. Trisha Not Specified Not Specified

    I love this kind of thing – really great. Would I be able to get the wanton from any asian supermarket? x

    • Jenny Park Not Specified Not Specified

      Yes! And most local grocery stores (albertsons, piggly-wiggly, Ralph’s, Jewel-Osco, etc) should have them too!

  22. Laura Not Specified Not Specified

    I was lucky enough to be able to live in Japan for 3 months when I was 18 and these were by far my most favorite food to eat. I spent some time with one family where the mom made her own wrappers even. SO GOOD! I will definitely be making this recipe. Thanks for posting it!

  23. Tammela Not Specified Not Specified

    There is something so wonderful, comforting, and delicious about dumplings…mmm

  24. Bev @ Bev Cooks Not Specified Not Specified

    OH haaaaaail yes. We both posted dumplings on the same day. Twinsies! (sorry)

  25. Alexe @ Keys to the Cucina Not Specified Not Specified

    Wow these look so good! I love to eat pot stickers and your recipe is super easy to follow too :)

  26. Samantha H Not Specified Not Specified

    Oh I love pot stickers! I always make dumplings but could never fry them without burning them or leaving them raw in the middle (or both!). I’ll definitely try adding water like your recipe says, and see if that helps cook them better! Thanks!

  27. PolaM Not Specified Not Specified

    I love dumplings too! And these potstickers make my moth water even if it is breakfast time and I am not really hungry!

  28. Sharon Not Specified Not Specified

    Do you think you could use rice paper to make pot stickers? I’m not able to eat gluten so therefore the wonton wrappers would not work for me. Just wondering?

    • Jenny Park Not Specified Not Specified

      Only if you’re going to steam them/boil them, as the rice paper will just melt away if you try to fry with it!

      I think you can use a gluten free flour and easily make some wontons at home by just adding some water and salt!

    These are so yummy! Such an interesting food

  32. Susan @ my taste haven Not Specified Not Specified

    These looks amazing. I can’t wait to try. My husband and I are obessed with potstickers… if it’s an option on the menu, we always order it but the idea of actually making them myself has always been intimidating. Now I just need to find out where to purchase wonton wrappers in Atlanta (assuming hmart will probably have them). I have also wondered what the amazing sauce is restaurants usually serve as a dipping sauce- it’s tangier than soy sauce. Is this probably Choganjang? Anyway, thank you for this awesome recipe!

    Your dumplings look and sound delicious. The hubs and I love pot stickers and will give them a try.

  39. JenA Not Specified Not Specified

    I made these tonight and they were very, very good. I will be making again. The only thing I would do different is cut the salt down. Even though I used low sodium soy sauce it was still a bit too salty – next time I will use maybe 1/2 or 3/4 tsp instead of 1 tsp. Thanks for the recipe!

  40. Tai Not Specified Not Specified

    Hello my family and I don’t eat pork, I’m I able to use ground turkey instead? And wouldn’t that change anything else in the recipie?

    I’m having trouble finding the wonton wrappers…any suggestions on where to buy them?


    • Jenny Park Not Specified Not Specified

      They’re in most grocery stores, but sometimes they can be tricky to locate within the store. If you’re in a Vons/Safeway, Albertsons/Jewel-Osco type grocery store you can usually find them in the refrigerated section (close to the packaged raviolis, ricotta cheese, etc) OR you can find them at Asian markets!
