Potstickers are among the most popular types of Chinese dumplings. Chinese people love potstickers from small but cozy restaurants as well as the homemade. If you don’t want to start from scratch, you can buy wrappers from Chinese grocery stores. However homemade wrappers have superior taste and texture. I made this dish for my son Maomao’s potluck dinner at his friend’s home. With a crispy, crunchy bottom and juicy, tender meat filling, these pan fried potstickers were a huge hit as they disappeared quickly.
