Pot Stickers – Beef & Coriander Recipe
Pot stickers are simple and delicious dumplings enjoyed all over Asia. Use your AGA cast iron range to make these delicious Pot Stickers – beef and coriander goodness – and share this Asian cuisine in your own kitchen. Serves 4
12 dumpling wrappers
½ lb. ground beef
½ small bunch of coriander, finely chopped
1 spring onion, finely chopped
1 small red chili, deseeded & finely chopped
1 small clove of garlic, finely minced
½ teaspoon grated ginger
½ teaspoon corn flour
A small pinch each of salt and pepper for seasoning
Grapeseed oil for pan frying
¼ cup of water
Soy sauce for dipping
Mix the beef, coriander, spring onion, chili, garlic, ginger and corn flour together in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper and add a 1 tsp. of water to bind. Place 1 tablespoon of filling onto each wrapper and seal by wetting ½ circles of the wrappers. Fold as shown in the video. Heat a small amount of oil in a wok and add the dumplings, arranging them like the petals of a flower. This should be done on the boiling plate of your AGA range.
Fry the pot stickers – beef & coriander filled dumplings until the bottoms are a light brown color. Pour over a big splash of cold water and cover immediately with a close fitting lid or tray to steam the upper part of the dumplings. When you can no longer hear the popping and sizzling of the pot stickers, remove the lid and let any further moisture evaporate.
Invert a small plate over the pot stickers and tip them out carefully so as to keep the shape of the petals. (See video for an example.)
Serve piping hot with soy sauce or your dipping sauce of choice.
