I made dumplings a few weeks ago and froze the leftovers. You can read my post and recipe on homemade dumplings here. With my leftover frozen dumplings, I made some pot stickers (guo tie)
Pot stickers are one of those dishes that seem universally loved by all. I have yet to meet someone who doesn’t like pot stickers. When I was little, my mom would always make them for events I went to. My friends were always begging my mom to make them.
There are different methods to make pot stickers. The way I make them is as follows: I take a large frying pan. I heat the pan up with some oil on high heat. Once the pan is heated, I put the dumplings in while frozen. Then I add some water and cover the pan with a lid. This allows the dumplings to cook, while also frying the bottom of the dumplings. When the water evaporates, you should be able to get a nice sear on the bottom of your dumplings from the pan. The end result is a chewy, crunchy skin. Yum!
