Wonton Pot Stickers with Soy Reduction Recipe

Publisher Photo
Bok choy is a type of Chinese cabbage with white stems and dark green leaves. In a pinch, regular cabbage will do. These appetizers—full of sausage, cilantro, ginger, and onion—freeze so well, I always make large batches. Then I have extras to pull out of the freezer at a moment’s notice.—Michael Angelo, Spring, Texas

Nutritional Facts

1 pot sticker with 3/4 teaspoon sauce equals 62 calories, 3 g fat (1 g saturated fat), 7 mg cholesterol, 122 mg sodium, 6 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, 3 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan, combine the mirin, balsamic vinegar and soy sauce. Bring to a boil; cook until liquid is reduced by half, about 15 minutes. Add basil; cover and steep for 2 minutes. Remove basil and discard. Cool sauce and transfer to a freezer container.
  2. For pot stickers, combine the first six ingredients in a large bowl. Crumble pork over mixture and mix well.
  3. Place about 1 tablespoon pork mixture in the center of each wonton wrapper. (Keep remaining wrappers covered with a damp paper towel until ready to use.) Moisten edges with water. Fold one corner diagonally over filling and press edges to seal.
  4. Place on a waxed paper-lined 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking sheet; freeze until firm. Transfer to resealable plastic freezer bags. May be frozen for up to 3 months.
  5. To use pot stickers: Thaw sauce in the refrigerator overnight. Arrange a fourth of the pot stickers 1 in. apart in a greased steamer; place in a large saucepan over 1 in. of water. Bring to a boil; cover and steam for 12-14 minutes or until a thermometer inserted into filling reads 160°. Repeat with remaining pot stickers.
  6. In a large skillet, cook pot stickers in oil in batches over medium-high heat for 1-2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Serve with sauce. Yield: about 3-1/2 dozen (3/4 cup sauce).
Editor's Note: Look for mirin in the Asian condiments section.
