2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup hot water
1 tablespoon shortening or oil


1 pound ground pork
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon grated ginger
1 pinch sugar
salt and pepper, to taste
3 green onions, chopped
1 egg
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 can water chestnuts, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced

Dipping Sauce

1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup white vinegar
1 teaspoon chili oil
1 green onion, chopped


Combine the flour, salt, hot water and shortening in a bowl and incorporate into a smooth dough. Allow the dough to rest for 20 minutes, covered.

Combine the filling ingredients. Combine the dipping sauce ingredients. Roll the dough out about 1/8 thick. Use a biscuit cutter or a glass to cut out 3 inch circles. Brush a little water over the circles and place about 2 teaspoons of filling in center. Fold the circles in half and press to seal, making sure to squeeze out any air. Stand the dumplings up on the folded side and press slightly so that they stand up nicely.

To cook, bring a pot of salted water to boil, and boil the dumplings until cooked through, about 5 minutes. Drain well. The dumplings may be frozen at this point for future use.

Heat a skillet with about 2 tablespoons oil and fry the dumplings on one side only, until nicely browned. Drain on paper towels. Serve with the dipping sauce.

REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
I always get potstickers when I see them on a menu. Figured it was time to learn how to make them myself. This recipe is kinda difficult but it turns out well. Just a lot of work. The filling and dipping sauce are both really good. I used regular sesame oil intead of the spicy oil in the dipping sauce.

I have been making this recipe for about 5 years now almost every Sunday during football. My ex husband LOVED them and so does my new husband. They do take a while to make so do make sure you save at least ah hour to 1 1/2 hours but it is sooo worth the time. This recipe makes a lot so you will definately have some to freeze and they will still taste the same.

I was skeptical about these pot stickers as well - TGIFridays pot stickers are my favorite. This recipe is on the money. Tastes just like TGIF's. I used egg roll wrappers because I had some leftover from making egg rolls. I didn't have all the ingredients for the sauce - so I'm not including that in this review. I followed the filling recipe exactly and the filling is right on! The egg roll wrappers worked fine. Next time I'll use wonton wrappers as the egg roll wrappers were to big.

My favorite appetizer is TGI Friday's pot stickers! So I was skeptical about these tasting just like them, but they really do!! They were wonderful! They make a lot, but it's easy to freeze them and just thaw and brown them whenever you are in the mood for them. I saved myself the hassle of making the dough and just bought wonton wrappers, much easier. They are a great appetizer to have on hand for company.
