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.
Do you prefer your potstickers hot or cold?
Potstickers and dumplings are both light (literally) and filling. They’re little one-bite treats that are ideal for consuming in a plane’s limited environment. They’re similar to chewy spring rolls because they’re precooked and eaten cold. I usually just mix them with soy sauce and rice wine vinegar before packaging them up for transit (which keeps the edges from drying out), but I also have a little TSA-approved shampoo bottle that I seized for sauce duty (don’t worry, it was brand new and had never been used for shampoo!). I’m ready to go with a fork or a set of chopsticks tucked into my backpack.

What’s the difference between potstickers and dumplings?
Potstickers are a type of dumpling that can be found in a variety of places, from Chinese restaurants to the frozen food section of the supermarket. Dumplings that are typically two to three bites in size with a thick and soft wrapper that crisps up after cooking and can be filled with cabbage and carrots for a vegetarian version or ground pork for a meat version.
Although menus can be confusing, the primary difference between potstickers and dumplings is that both have a dough exterior and a vegetable or meat filling on the interior. Potstickers are a small variation on dumplings in that they are crispy on the outside due to the way they are cooked. You’ll find a delectable pocket of doughy sweetness wherever you go as long as you’re in the mood for one.
When it comes to potstickers, how long should they be cooked?
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.
