  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1/2 cup shiitake mushrooms finely minced
  • 1 cup shredded green cabbage
  • 1/4 cup green onions thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced ginger
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 32 potsticker wrappers
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil


  • Place the pork, mushrooms, cabbage, green onions, soy sauce, sesame oil, cornstarch, salt, pepper, ginger and garlic in a large bowl. Stir until thoroughly combined.
  • Place one potsticker wrapper on a flat surface. Keep the remaining wrappers covered so that they don't dry out.
  • Place a little under 2 teaspoons of the pork mixture onto the center of the wrapper. Brush the edges of the wrapper with water.
  • Fold the wrapper over and hold it open in a half moon shape. Fold the top of the wrapper over to make pleats. See step-by-step photos in the post.
  • Repeat the process with the remaining wrappers and filling.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Place 6-8 potstickers in the oil with the flat side down. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until bottoms are browned.
  • Add 1/4 cup of water to the pan then immediately cover the pan to steam the potstickers.
  • Steam for 3 minutes, then uncover the pan and reduce the heat to medium. Cook for another 3-4 minutes until all of the water evaporates.
  • Repeat the process another 2 times with the remaining oil and potstickers.
  • Serve immediately.
