Potstickers Are Fun Food.

Pot stickers are flour dough wrappers filled with meat. In difficult cultures, you find the same idea: gyozas, wonton, spring rolls, dumplings, lumpia, ravioli, just to name a few. Potstickers are cooked by steaming or frying or boiling, but I like it with lower fat by steaming and pan-frying. Although steaming alone may be the best for your health, sometimes the wrappers can be dry and they may be completely cooked but still taste floury, depending on how much flour the manufacturer use to prevent the sticking between the skins or sheets. Also, many will recommend boiling the potstickers, but I found that unlike others' demonstration, mine tends to fall apart in the boiling process. Some will fill their dough with a raw mixture. However, I like to use the spring roll method and fill with already cooked ingredients. You can make these potstickers with various kinds of meat or with only vegetables.

I have found that at parties and buffet tables, potstickers (or whatever you want to call them) are crowd-pleasers. They require no utensils and are the ultimate finger food.
