HOW TO MAKE POT STICKERS AT HOME
- you can use a bamboo steamer – 15-20 minutes (line with lettuce or spray with non-stick coating)
- or in a pressure cooker/instant pot which is all the rage now – 7 minutes on steam and they are ready!
- my favorite way is pan frying – searing the bottom of the pot sticker in a small amount of oil in a hot pan until they are golden brown. Finish by steaming for a few minutes in broth or water.
