Pork and Shiitake Potstickers

Pork and Shiitake Pot Stickers

I love making homemade potstickers when I have the time. Yesterday was a rainy day and my kids had no swimming after school so I decided to spend some quality time in the kitchen making a Chinese food feast. I usually make chicken potstickers but decided to try pork this time. They took time to make but turned out incredible – we all loved them. I served them with homemade Potsticker Dipping SauceFried Rice, and Asian Kale Salad. It was a fun meal to make and my entire family enjoyed it.

How to Make Pork and Shiitake Potstickers

Make the Potsticker Dipping Sauce and set it aside so flavors can mingle. Make Hoisin Sauce (for the filling), if needed.

Heat the sesame oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the mushrooms and green onions and cook, stirring often, for 2-3 minutes. Add the garlic and ginger and continue to cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Remove from heat and let it cool completely.

In a food processor, combine the ground pork, cooled mushroom mixture, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, black pepper, to taste. Pulse until well combined.

Spread out the potsticker wraps and scoop a small teaspoon full of filling onto the center of each wrap. Wet the top of each potsticker wrap with a baster brush dipped in water. Fold the potsticker to make a moon shape and pinch shut with 4 to 5 pleats along the side. Really make sure they are sealed, so the filling doesn’t fall out. Place onto a cooking sheet with a silpat mat or waxed paper. Cover the completed potstickers with a towel to prevent them from drying out.

Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a pan. Once hot, potstickers and cook until the bottoms are golden brown. Add 1/4 cup of water and cover with a lid. Steam for 3 minutes; remove from pan to a serving tray. Repeat with the remainder of pot stickers. Remove from heat and serve with a dipping sauce.

  1. I believe I’ve only eaten these one time in a restaurant. Yours look delicious and your family is lucky to have you cooking a wide variety of great food for them.

  2. I’ve always wanted to know how to make this! So much healthier than the store brought brand. These might make a good appetizer for my guest tonight 🙂

  3. Potstickers were not even within my realm of knowledge until this post. They sound pretty good, but pretty labor intensive for as many as I would need!

    These potstickers look so delicious, as does the entire meal!

  5. I’m definitely thinking I need to do a dinner of just potstickers one of these days…so good!

  6. I love potstickers but only if I can get the round wrappers, I hate the square ones. I swear they turn out differently.
