Pot stickers

Wherein inspired by greg at beggingtodiffer


I picked up the ground pork and grabbed the other stuff out of the pantry. Not a lot of measuring going on. Best bet is to under season it, then pinch off a bite and fry it up in the pan. After that, adjust the rest according to taste.

1 pound ground pork
minced onion (maybe half a cup)
touch of soy sauce
touch of sesame oil
couple globs of hoisin sauce
Vigorous shakes of five-spice powder
salt

Mix well. Spoon a teaspoon onto a wonton wrapper. Some of my spoonings were a little big and I got 58 pot stickers out of it. Frozen them, then lightly vacu-packed them 10 to a bag.

Took a few of them (still frozen) and covered them in a pan with a couple tablespoons of hot peanut oil. Cooked for 5 minutes, flipping them to brown both sides. Tossed in half cup water, still covered for 2 more minutes. Then cooked uncovered until the water was evaporated.

I have a few leftover wrappers and I'm thinking mixing peanut butter and jelly, and steaming them.

Would that even be good? Huh.

They were ok. Steaming made them soggy, would be better fried and sprinkled with sugar.
