Units Scale


Dipping sauce

  • 1/2 cup reduced sodium sauce
  • 1 thinly sliced green onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds

For serving

  • 1 thinly sliced green onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds


  1. Make the filling: In a large bowl, add the ground pork, hoisin sauce, green onions, soy sauce, garlic powder and sesame oil. Gently yet thoroughly stir to combine the ingredients. Set aside.
  2. Fill the potstickers: Fill a small bowl with water and set aside. For each potsticker, place a wonton wrapper on a work surface. Add 2 heaping teaspoons of the pork filling to the center of the wrapper. Using your finger, wet the edges of the wrapper with water.
  3. Form the potsticker: Fold the wrapper so the opposite corners are touching and form a triangle. Press firmly along the edges to seal the wrapper. Wet the corners on the folded side of the potsticker. Fold the corners to the center of the bottom of the potsticker. Place on a baking sheet and cover with a damp paper towel. Form the remaining potstickers.
  4. Cooking the potstickers: Heat a large nonstick sauté pan over medium heat. Add 2 teaspoons of oil to the pan. When the oil begins to shimmer, add the potstickers to the pan. Make sure not to crowd the pan. Cook for about 1-2 minutes or until the golden brown. Flip over the potstickers, add about 2 tablespoons of water to the pan and cover with a lid. Cook for 2-3 minutes. Remove from the pan to a platter. Cook the remaining potstickers.
  5. Make the dipping sauce: While the potstickers are cooking, make the dipping sauce. In a small bowl combine the soy sauce, green onion and sesame seeds.
  6. Serve the potstickers: Sprinkle the warm potstickers with sliced green onions and sesame seeds. Serve with the dipping sauce.


Refrigerator ~ Store cooked and cooled pork potstickers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in a covered nonstick pan for 2-3 minutes or until heated through.
