Pork & Ginger Pot Stickers with Garlic and Sriracha


  • 2 pounds ground pork
  • 2 packages pot sticker skins (about 40 skins)
  • ½ can water chestnuts, diced
  • 2/3 cup red cabbage, diced
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 5 green onions, diced
  • ¼ cup fresh ginger, minced
  • ¼ cup cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1 can chicken broth
  • sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • a bowl of water

Cooking Instructions:

  1. In a large bowl, combine pork, water chestnuts, cabbage, garlic, onions, ginger, cilantro, sriracha and soy sauce.

To assemble the pot stickers:

  1. On a flat work surface, lay down a pot sticker skin. Place a 1/2 tablespoon “ball” of the pork mixture in the center of the skin. Wet your fingers with water, fold the pot sticker skin in half around the pork mixture and pinch the edges of the pot sticker together to enclose the pork inside. NOTE: If the sides of the pot sticker skins aren’t sticking, use more water.
  2. Repeat the above step in batches until all the pork has been used.

To cook the pot stickers:

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of sesame oil in a large, lidded skillet over medium high heat. Add 10-ish pot stickers to the skillet; let stickers crisp for 2 minutes (until outside is browned).
  2. Pour 1/4 cup of chicken broth into the skillet and cover; let steam for 7-8 minutes or until pot stickers are cooked through.
  3. Repeat the above step until all pot stickers have been cooked.
  4. Serve warm with sriracha or your favorite Asian dip.
