Pork Pot Stickers

Pork Pot Stickers (Adapted from CL)

2 tablespoons peanut oil, divided
8 ounces lean ground pork
1/3 cup chopped green onions
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 1/2 cups packaged cabbage-and-carrot coleslaw
3 tablespoons water
1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
30 wonton wrappers
1 cup water

In a large skillet, heat 1 teaspoon oil over medium-high. Add pork and cook until done, stirring to crumble - this should take about 4-6 minutes. Stir in onions, soy sauce and sesame oil - cook 30 seconds. Stir in coleslaw and continue cooking until cabbage wilts - about 1 more minute.

In a small bowl, whisk together 3 tablespoons water and cornstarch. Pour mixture into the skillet and cook 1 minute. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature.

Working with 1 wonton wrapper at a time, spoon about 1 scant tablespoon pork mixture into center of each wrapper. Moisten edges of wrapper with water - bring 2 opposite corners to center, pinching points to seal. Bring the remaining 2 corners to center, pinching points to seal. Pinch 4 edges together to seal. Place pot stickers on a large baking sheet sprinkled with cornstarch, keeping them covered to prevent them from drying out.

In a very large skillet, heat remaining oil over medium heat. Arrange pot stickers in the skillet in a single layer. Cook until browned on bottom, about 3-4 minutes. Pour in 1 cup water - cover and cook 5 minutes. Uncover and cook until liquid evaporates, about 2 minutes. Serve warm.

Makes 30 pot stickers.
