Pork Potstickers Recipe

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 5 minutes
Serves: 6-8

Ginger, scallion and Chinese 5-spice give these pork potstickers an exotic flavor profile. Super easy to cook, these take just 20 total minutes including prep and cook time to make. These are a snap to cook up during the week - serve with a hearty salad and they can even make a light meal. We especially like them as an appetizer for a dinner party.

The ginger and scallion flavors that carry through from the potstickers to the sauce cry out for a light, high-acid white that's got some verve. Skip the Chardonnay and try one of these exotic white wines: our 'Splurge' is a Spanish Albarino that will make you think of a lemon drop. Our 'Steal' is an Austrian grape by the name of Gruner Veltliner - hard to pronounce but very easy to drink!

Pork Potsticker Ingredients:

1 lb ground pork
1 package wonton wrappers
1 red bell pepper
3 scallions
2 tbsp fresh ginger
1/4 cup sriracha hot sauce
1 tbsp chinese 5-spice
2 tbsp fresh cilantro
4 tbsp soy sauce

Pork Potsticker Cooking Instructions:

1.) Bring 2 quarts of water to a low boil. Finely chop bell pepper, ginger, scallions and cilantro.

2.) In a large mixing bowl, combine pork, red pepper, 1 tbsp ginger, 2/3 of the scallions, hot sauce and 5-spice.

3.) Add water to a small bowl or shallow dish. Place a tbsp of mixture into center of a wonton wrapper, wet your fingertips with the water and moisten edges of the wrapper all the way around. Fold wrapper over mixture into a half-moon shape and press edges firmly together to create a tight seal.

4.) After all wontons are prepared, add to boiling water and cook until they float (about 3-5 minutes). Remove from water and gently strain to remove excess liquid. Reserve.

5.) In a small bowl, add remaining scallion and ginger to soy sauce. Serve with wontons as a dipping sauce. Enjoy!
