Place frozen potstickers flat-side down in a single layer, leaving space between them. Pour in some water (see chart). Bring the water to a boil. Cover and cook for 8 minutes over medium-high heat.

Is it possible to steam Ling Ling potstickers?

You’ll need a bamboo steamer basket for this method, which is one of the simplest. These may be found at most Asian grocery stores for a reasonable price.

You can either put some cabbage leaves or parchment paper in the bamboo steamer prior to prevent sticking.

If you’re using parchment paper, make small holes or air vents so they can cook properly.

Then all you have to do is heat up some water in a pan, place the frozen dumplings in the steamer basket, cover, and voil!


These frozen potstickers are great because you can simply boil them in water until they float, then add them to chicken stock for a quick and tasty soup.


You can steam the potstickers before frying them in oil to get a wonderful crispy skin.

If you’re really brave, fry them first, then add water to the pan and steam them. Fry them again once the water has evaporated for extra crispy potstickers!

Because Ling Ling potstickers are so tasty, this is the ideal way to prepare them.

When you’re making potstickers, how do you know when they’re done?

Potstickers are cooked in three stages. The dumplings are first fried in a hot skillet with oil for a few seconds. After that, you add water to steam the dumplings and finish cooking them. After the water has evaporated, the dumplings are given a second fry to turn the skins golden brown, which is where most of the problems occur. You don’t just fry the dumplings by adding a little flour and white vinegar to the cooking liquid. The starch in the flour forms a large disk that unites all the dumplings into a golden pancake as the water evaporates. The color and edges of the pancakes indicate when the dumplings are done: when the pancake gets brown and tasty and the edges curl up, the whole thing is done. Removing the pot-unstuck-potstickers from the pan is a breeze by sliding a thin spatula under the pancake and flipping it out onto a plate all at once.

Now go ahead and fry fearlessly. They’ll be the most delicious potstickers you’ve ever had.

What’s the best way to prepare Costco Ling Ling potstickers?

I bought a package of these potstickersChicken and Vegetable dumplings from Ling Ling during my Costco shopping trip.

I tasted a potsticker sample at Costco and enjoyed it so much that I purchased a package of Ling Ling chicken and vegetable potstickers to take home.

These potstickers are absolutely delicious!

The package’s cooking directions for Costco Ling Ling potstickers are as follows:

  • In a nonstick pan, heat 2 tablespoons of oil.
  • Place frozen potstickers in a single layer on a frying pan.
  • Fill the frying pan with 2/3 cup heated water.
  • Cook, covered, for 8 minutes, or until all the liquid has evaporated.
  • Brown for 1 minute after removing the cover.

I also like to turn the Costco potstickers and brown them for a few minutes on the other side. My Ling Ling potstickers should be golden brown on all sides.

Microwave cooking instructions are included with the Ling Ling potstickers, although they warn that it is not recommended.

Microwave the chicken and vegetable potstickers by placing them in a microwave-safe basin, covering them with heated water, and cooking for 5-6 minutes.

I’ve never tried making potstickers in the microwave because I always use the stovetop approach.

In a kettle of water, you can also boil the Costco potstickers.

Simply cook frozen Ling Ling potstickers for 8 minutes in a pot of boiling water.

If you want them browned, cook them in a frying pan after they’ve been boiled.

It’s just too complex to boil the water, drain it, and separate the browning.

That’s why I prefer the recommended cooking method of frying in a frying pan rather than dealing with boiling water in a pot.

Costco potstickers are a terrific quick dinner, so keep them in your freezer for those days when you don’t have time to cook.

These Ling Ling potstickers aren’t your average frozen meal; they taste like restaurant potstickers!

At the end of the cooking process, here’s a picture of Costco Ling Ling potstickers in the frying pan:

Is it possible to make potstickers in an air fryer?

In the air fryer basket, place frozen potstickers, dumplings, wantons, and gyoza. Preheat the oven to 380 degrees Fahrenheit (194 degrees Celsius) and air fry for 8 to 10 minutes, or until crispy to your liking. Halfway through the cooking period, remember to flip.

How long do potstickers take to cook?

In a skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Place around 6 or 7 pot stickers, flat side down, in the heated oil. Cook for about 2 minutes, or until the bottoms are golden brown. Drizzle in some water and cover the pan tightly; steam for 3 minutes. Remove the top and reduce the heat to medium. Cook for another 1 or 2 minutes, or until the water has evaporated and the bottoms are browned and crunchy. Serve immediately in a heated serving dish. Rep with the rest of the pot stickers. Serve with dipping sauce on the side.
