So here’s what happened…
There I am sitting (for a very brief moment) on the couch watching The Kardashians. They were out to eat and were ordering Pot Stickers. I immediately think I need potstickers NOW! I jump off the couch, find a recipe, and make them.
Within minutes I had the dough made and “resting”.
To make the dough:
What you need:
5oz boiling water
1 tsp salt
What you do:
I used a food processor. Simply pulse the salt and flour so it’s mixed, then slowly add the boiling water and mix until it clumps up. Then, move it to a floured countertop and knead for about 2 minutes. It shouldn’t be sticky but soft. Make a ball and put in a plastic bag and get out as much air as possible. Let it rest for an hour.
After that make sure your counter is very floured and use a rolling pin to roll out the dough and using a large round cookie cutter make your circles. Then, fill the middles (I used carrot matchsticks, shrimp, purple cabbage, and Portobello mushrooms), and pinch the edges. I tried to make mine look pretty but failed. It was my first time after all.
Once you have them filled and pinched, add a splash of oil to a pan and let them cook until the bottoms are brown. Then, immediately add 1/4 cup water and reduce heat to medium. Let them steam for about 10 minutes or until the water is evaporated.
Serve and enjoy!
p.s. thanks Kardashians!😂
