Recipe: Pot Stickers

We had the most delicious homemade pot stickers for dinner tonight. Although they were time consuming, they were worth it. This is my own recipe (inspired by my good friend, Kyre) so none of measurements are exact.

You will need:
- 1 package of won ton wrappers
- about 400 grams of ground meat (I used turkey)
- 1/4 shredded cabbage
- 1/2 chopped onion
- 1/4 shredded zucchini
- about 5 mushrooms, chopped
- 2 cups bean sprouts
- some grated ginger
- 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
- small handful of cilantro, chopped
- some sesame oil
- some soy sauce
- some fish sauce
- garlic powder
-black pepper
- ground coriander
- red pepper flakes
- yolk of 1 egg, beaten

Heat some canola or olive oil in a large skillet, add the onion, garlic, cabbage, mushroom and zucchini. Cook at medium heat until tender. Add the meat and continue to cook until meat is cooked through. Finally add the ginger, sprouts, soy sauce, fish sauce, sesame oil and spices. Allow the mixture to cool then spoon mixture into the won ton wrappers. Use the beaten egg yolk to seal the edges. Tonight we cooked some in hot oil in a wok, kinda fried them and served them with plum sauce. Tomorrow I going to try making won ton soup with the remaining stickers, so I let you know how it works out.
