Chinese Dumpling Pot Sticker Recipe

Chinese Dumplings

Chinese food has always been a family favorite and Pot Stickers, also known as Chinese Dumplings, were always one of the top appetizer choices. One day I saw a Pot Sticker seasoning packet from Sunbird and decided to make them myself and they were delicious! The Won Ton wrapper is thinner than the dumpling cover served in a restaurant and produces a much lighter appetizer. When the seasoning packet was no longer available I varied ingredients from a number of recipes to come up with the perfect stuffing mix! The following recipe will make 20 Potstickers.


Vegetarian Variation and Substitutions

  • Ground Chicken can be used in place of Ground Pork
  • Chopped Spinach and finely chopped Water Chestnuts can be used in place of Napa Cabbage
  • For a Vegetarian Potsticker substitute meat with Tofu or Meatless Crumbles


  • 8 oz. Ground Pork
  • 2 cups shredded Napa Cabbage
  • 2 Scallions (including greens) finely chopped
  • 1 tbs. Sesame Oil
  • 2 tsp. minced Garlic
  • 2 tbs. Soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. Ginger
  • 1 tbs. Sesame Seeds, toasted
  • 1 Egg beaten (to brush on the edges of the Wrap)
  • 1 package Won Ton Wraps


  1. Combine Ground Pork, Napa Cabbage, Scallions, Sesame Seeds, Garlic, Soy Sauce and Ginger
  2. Beat egg well. Using a pastry brush apply egg to two adjacent sides of the WonTon wrap
  3. Place about 1/2 tsp of Pork mixture on wrap, fold over forming a triangle and pinch edges together
  4. Place each prepared Pot Sticker on a plate. Once ten wraps are filled you are ready to fry them
  5. Heat Olive or Vegetable oil in a large frying pan or electric frying pan using medium high heat.
  6. Once the oil is heated, place the prepared Pot Stickers in the frying pan and cook until browned on both sides (approximately 10 minutes per side)
  7. While Pot Stickers are cooking, prepare the other ten wraps. This is the recommended process to use for every 10 Pot Stickers you are going to prepare
  8. Pour 1/3 cup water into the frying pan and cover. When the water has been absorbed, approximately 10 minutes, remove the Pot Stickers and arrange on a platter.

When I make Pot Stickers for our Wisconsin Dells vacation I triple the recipe and will use the entire package of Won Ton wrappers (there are 60 in a package).

Pot Stickers Can be Prepared and Frozen

Pot Stickers can be cooked ahead of time and frozen.

  • Place cooked Pot Stickers on a waxed paper covered cookie sheet
  • Place the cookie sheet in the freezer for 30 to 45 minutes or until Won Ton wrap appears to be partially frozen. Once partially frozen the Pot Stickers will not stick together
  • Put the Pot Stickers in a baggie and freeze until ready for use

Thaw and heat in a little oil to crisp them. This will save time in the kitchen and give you more time to enjoy the company!
