  1. Crumble pork into a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the pork, cabbage, green onion, ginger, water chestnuts, salt, sugar and sesame oil. Chill in the refrigerator 6 to 8 hours, or overnight.
  3. Place a tablespoon of the pork mixture into each of the wonton wrappers. Fold the wrappers, and seal the edges with a moistened fork.
  4. In a large, deep skillet, heat 3 tablespoons vegetable oil over medium high heat. Place the pot stickers into the oil seam sides up. Heat 30 seconds to a minute. Pour water into the skillet. Gently boil 7 to 8 minutes, until oil and water begins to sizzle, then add remaining oil. When the bottoms begin to brown, remove pot stickers from heat.
  5. In a small serving bowl, mix together the chili oil, soy sauce, and vinegar, adjusting proportions to taste.

This recipe was excellent!!!! Similar to the ones you would get from a Chinese restaurant, or even Friday's. I made modifications to the recipe, not because I felt they needed it, but because I ...

This recipe is incredible. However, I'm going to address the review that states that this cooking method is unsafe. These are traditionally cooked this way. I cook them in a pan with oil and,...

These were wonderful--a lot of work though but worth it. I combined two recipes together. I only used 1/2 c. chopped cabbage, using the blender method to chop. It was easy this way, just make...

tastes exactly like my Grandma Kwong's! For people whom don't realize how to cook them, it is true that you first put them in a touch of oil to brown the bottoms (meaning the fan is at the to...
