Potstickers are super yummy! When I’m at Costco I usually pick up a bag of their potstickers to keep in the freezer. Yesterday I decided to make my own and make them gluten free for my daughter. Making them from scratch is a lot of work, so make sure you have a couple of hours to devote to this yummy recipe. Mine may not be the prettiest pot stickers in town but they tasted good. And since it was my first attempt we’ll call it a success!
1 cup white rice flour or sweet rice flour
3/4 cup tapioca flour
pinch of salt
2 tablespoons oil
2/3 cup boiled water (adjust if necessary)
1 lb. ground pork
4 cups chopped cabbage (I used pre-packaged cabbage for cole slaw)
1 teaspoon ground ginger
2 tablespoons minced garlic
3 tablespoons gluten-free soy sauce
Combine filling ingredients and set aside. Combine flours, salt and oil, add boiling water and mix to form a dough. Dust a cutting board with rice flour and roll out dough, not too thin. I used a mason jar lid to cut circles. Fill with pork and crimp closed either by hand or you can use a fork. You can also use a tortilla press if you have one to make perfect wrappers. Add 2 tablespoons of oil to a pre-heated pan and add potstickers. Cook for 1-2 minutes per side, then add a 1/2 cup of water and cover and let steam for 4-6 minutes. I like to take the cover off and cook them a little longer so they have a slight crunch to them. Dip in vinegar/soy sauce and enjoy!
