Chou Chou Potstickers

  • 1.5lb ground pork
  • 6 peeled, chopped water chestnuts
  • 2 cups of chopped long chives
  • 6 tbsp of soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp of salt
  • 1 tsp of sugar
  • 1 packet of potsticker skin (50 count)


  • Blanch long chives to heighten flavor.
  • Mix ground pork, water chestnut, chives, soy sauce, salt, and sugar.
  • See video how to wrap a potsticker.

  • Once dumplings are wrapped, you can either boil or pan-fry them. To boil, just add the potstickers into a pot until they float atop. To pan-fry, coat the pan with oil and flour, and let the bottom of the potstickers brown. Then, add a little bit of water, place a cover, and allow to them to steam until the skin becomes translucent. 
  • TIP: cook one potsticker in advance to make sure the filling has enough flavor.
