I have been on a huge Thai/Asian kick lately. It might have something to do with the fact that we’re leaving this place soon and are trying to use up as much food as possible. The less we have to travel with, the better.

Dinners are starting to get interesting around here. Using up all the ingredients you’ve got can definitely challenge your creativity, good thing my husbands a good sport.

We’ve stopped grocery shopping entirely, so whatever we have in the house is what we’ve got. We have lots of snacks at least! Don’t worry, I’ve been attempting to stockpile “normal” recipes to share with you lovely folk. But just know, my pasta last night was slimy green. And I don’t mean the pretty kind. The color green you see in a high school cafeteria. (Good thing it tasted good.)

Let me yap about these Potstickers for a hot minute because they’re flippin’ awesome. Like seriously addicting. I’m pretty sure we ate the entire batch in one sitting. Between two of us, we inhaled them..one after another after another..in.cred.ible. The sauce that the pork is cooked in is so tasty all on it’s own, these babies don’t even need to be dipped.

But I’m a dipper, through and through. I just picked up a spicy peanut sauce, but you can make your own too, there are tons of recipes out there and it’s really easy, but to be honest, I was being lazy, pot stickers already took some time to pinch together.

These Pot Stickers are completely perfect for really any occasion, dinner party appetizer, game day, ahem-lunch! 😉 Just don’t pass these by, try them!

Spicy Pork Potstickers

An incredible mix with ground pork fills these completely amazing pot-stickers! Dipping them in Peanut Sauce takes them over the top! A perfect appetizer for any occasion!

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 Tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon sesame oil, DIVIDED
  • 1 Tablespoon hoisin
  • 2-3 Tablespoons Sweet Chili Sauce
  • 1 cup shredded red cabbage
  • 1 cup shredded matchstick carrots
  • 30 Wonton wrappers
  • Water
  • Cooking Spray
  • 1 cup Peanut Sauce (for dipping)

Directions

  1. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Spray with cooking spray and add the ground pork. Cook all the way through, grinding it up as you go. About 5-8 minutes.
  2. In a small bowl whisk together the soy sauce, 1 teaspoon sesame oil, hoisin, and chili sauce. Add the mix to the ground pork along with the green onions. Stir together.
  3. Add in the cabbage and carrots, reduce heat to medium-low, stir together and cook until the cabbage starts to soften. Turn off the heat.
  4. Pull out your wonton wrappers, a small bowl of water, and a baking sheet.
  5. Working with one wrapper at a time, fill a small tablespoon of the pork mixture in the middle of the wrapper. Using your fingers, moisten the edges of the wonton wrapper with water, and fold in half, pinching the edges so there aren't any holes.
  6. Place in a single layer on the baking sheet. Repeat until all the pork mixture is gone. Place in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
  7. When ready to cook them, heat up 1 Tablespoon sesame oil over medium heat. Working in batches so as not to over crowd, transfer 6-8 filled wontons to the skillet.
  8. Cook 1-2 minutes on each side, until golden brown, try to only flip them once. Add 1/4 cup water to the pan and cover for 4-5 minutes. Remove the cover and cook until the water is fully evaporated, 1-2 minutes more.
  9. Remove from heat and repeat with remaining pot stickers.
  10. Serve immediately with peanut sauce of your choice for dipping. (Though they're so good, you don't even need it! We had a peanut sauce that was spicy, so it added even more 'oomph' to already tasty appetizers!)
