Pork and Scallion Potstickers

Merry Christmas to all that celebrate and happy eat Chinese food and go to the movies to the rest. 🙂

I’m back today with one more dim sum recipe and a little soy vay giveaway to kick off the week! When out for dim sum after seeking out the cart with pork buns, the next thing on my list are dumpling.  Any kind will do, shumai, jiaozi, and potstickers.  Oh and if you are at the right place, you might even end up with soup dumplings. . .mmmm. . .

See I told you, I love my dim sum.  So back on track, I figured I’m venturing into dumpling making for the first time, let’s do something simple – potstickers. 

Pork and Scallion Potstickers

Unlike the bao I made yesterday, you can knock a good amount of these puppies out in about an hour.  By picking up some pre-made wonton or gyoza wrappers, you save an amazing amount of time. 

I had a little fun when folding and tried out a few different ways to crimp the dumplings, but a simple fold-over works just as well.

Save Recipe


    For the potstickers:
  • 1lb ground pork
  • 1 cup (about 4-5 leaves) finely chopped napa cabbage
  • 2 scallions, green and white parts finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons ginger, finely minced
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely minced
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 package of wonton or gyoza wrappers
  • For the dipping sauce:
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 scallion, chopped (green parts only)
  • a dash of white pepper


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the ground pork, napa cabbage, scallions, ginger, garlic, cornstarch, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil and white pepper. Mix well with a spoon or your hands.
  2. Lay the wonton out flat on your cooking surface and spoon 1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons of the filling. You want to be sure not to overfill the wontons or they will burst when cooking.
  3. Fill a small bowl with water and with your finger, moisten 2 of the edges of the wonton. Fold over to form a triangle and press down. If you like you can crimp the edges when folding over.
  4. Continue with remaining wonton wrappers and filling.
  5. Once all the dumplings are ready, take a non-stick pan over medium heat and add about 1/2 tablespoon of oil. Place the potstickers flat side down and cook for about 2-3 minutes.
  6. Have a cover for the pan nearby, pour about 1/3 cup water into the non-stick pan to steam the dumpling and immediately cover.
  7. Cook until the water has evaporated and you have a nice crust on the bottom of the potstickers.
  8. For the dipping sauce:
  9. In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, scallions and white pepper.
  10. Serve with cooked potstickers.
Recipe Type: Appetizers, Sides, Snacks, Chinese, Dim Sum


These potstickers freeze really well, so if you don't plan on cooking them all right away, lay them flat on a baking sheet and freeze. Once completely frozen transfer to a freezer bag to store for at least 3 months.

    I’m gonna have to try this recipe. The closest thing to this I’ve made are plan ol’ pork wontons but the filling was lacking something. It was probably the napa cabbage…

    I love dim sum though I haven’t had any in the 12 years I have lived on the Treasure Coast of Florida, I moved here from the San Francisco Bay area in 2000, I miss it very much. I love POT STICKERS!!! I use to make great vegetarian ones with tempeh when I lived out west and it was easy to find.

    Thank you thank you for this recipe and tutorial. I made pot stickers for the first time last night and they came out PERFECT thanks to your help! We loved them! I followed your recipe to the letter. No more store-bought pot-stickers for us! 🙂
