Wonton Pot Stickers with Soy Reduction

 Wonton Pot Stickers with Soy Reduction
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
