Chives Pot Stickers (韭菜锅贴)

Cooking Pot Stickers!
The oil actually splattered all around when I added water~
I don't like oily kitchen! 
The most I can do in my kitchen is to pan fry, no deep frying..!

Looking at this picture makes me wanna eat more!
I boiled some for my breakfast and it was fantastic!
I feel that boiled ones are even tastier than Pan fried+steamed ones.

I'm not good at pleating..
But I think I've improved a bit  =) 
The next time, I will roll the wrapper even thinner...

Biting onto each pot stickers never fails to give me a surprise~
the juice burst into my mouth just like eating 小龙包!

I kept some in the freezer..
After serving them to my family,
I only have 10 left..
I can't wait to eat them again~ perhaps for tomorrow's dinner!


Chives Pot Stickers (韭菜锅贴)

600g Minced Pork
2 Tbsp Sesame Oil
1 Tbsp Light Soy Sauce
1/2 tsp White Pepper
A Pinch of Salt
3 Tbsp Ginger Juice
3 Stalks of Spring Onion
6 Stalks of Chives

1. Chop spring onion thinly and chives into 1/2mm pieces.
2. Mix minced pork and all seasonings together well.
3. Add spring onion and chives into pork and mix again.
4. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before wrapping.
5. Wrap with wrappers and pleat as desired.
6. Heat a non stick pan with a tablespoon of oil. When oil has heated up, 
add pot stickers and pan fry it until the bottoms are golden. 
7. Get ready the lid to cover the pan 
and add water until it covers half of the height of the pot stickers.
Cover immediately and leave a small gap for steam to release.
8. Let it simmer until the water has nearly dried up.
9. Serve hot with shredded ginger and black vinegar.

To have a softer meat texture, get 40% fat and 60% meat from the butcher.
You can ground the meat in your blender again at home, 
or you can ask the butcher to ground it another 1 or 2 times.
