Here's my top make-ahead appetizer. My three kids are old enough to cook these themselves, right from the freezer. They're a lot more nutritious than the ones you get at a restaurant. —Marisa Raponi, Vaughan, Ontario
- 2 medium carrots, finely chopped
- 1 small onion, finely chopped
- 1/2 cup finely chopped water chestnuts
- 1/3 cup minced fresh chives
- 1 large egg white, lightly beaten
- 3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1 pound ground pork
- 60 pot sticker or gyoza wrappers
- 3 tablespoons canola oil, divided
- 1 cup chicken broth, divided
- Additional reduced-sodium soy sauce, optional
- In a large bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. Add pork; mix lightly but thoroughly. Place a scant tablespoon filling in center of each wrapper. (Cover remaining wrappers with a damp paper towel until ready to use.)
- Moisten wrapper edges with water. Fold wrapper over filling; seal edges, pleating the front side several times to form a pleated pouch. Stand pot stickers on a work surface to flatten bottoms; curve slightly to form crescent shapes, if desired.
- In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Arrange a third of the pot stickers in concentric circles in pan, flat side down; cook 1-2 minutes or until bottoms are golden brown. Carefully add 1/3 cup broth (broth may splatter); reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, covered, 2-3 minutes or until broth is almost absorbed and filling is cooked through.
Cook, uncovered, until bottoms are crisp and broth is completely evaporated, about 1 minute. Repeat with remaining oil, pot stickers and broth. If desired, serve with additional soy sauce.
Freeze option: Place uncooked pot stickers on waxed paper-lined baking sheets; freeze until firm. Transfer to resealable plastic freezer bags; return to freezer. To use, cook frozen pot stickers as directed, increasing broth to 1/2 cup and simmering time to 4-6 minutes when cooking each batch. Yield: 5 dozen.
