Tips 

  • Using a thermometer, check the internal temperature of the potstickers. The thermometer should read as 160℉.
  • If you like your potstickers to have one tender and one crisp side. Bake the potsticker for additional 5 minutes so that they turn golden and crisp from the bottom. 

After that, splash some water over the potstickers. Cover the baking sheet with foil and let the potstickers steam cook for about 5-8 minutes.

How to make perfect pan-fried potstickers?

  1. Grease the skillet with any oil of your preference. Heat it on medium-high heat until It shimmers and evenly coats the bottom of the skillet. You can use canola, vegetable, or peanut oil. For mild flavor, use sesame or olive oil.
  1. With the help of tongs, carefully place the potstickers one by one in the preheated skillet. Make sure they do not overlap. Once placed in the skillet, do not shuffle their positions.
  1. The potstickers should be fried for 1-2 minutes or until the bottom is golden and crisp.
  1. Then add water so that It covers ⅓ from the bottom of the skillet. Let it come to a boil. Cover your skillet, reduce the heat to a simmer and let the potstickers steam cook for about 3-5 minutes or until all the water has been evaporated. 
  1. To check for doneness and ensure safety, stuck a thermometer inside the thickest portion of any potsticker. I should read as 160℉ for beef or pork, 165℉ for poultry, and 145℉ for seafood.
  1. Remove the potsticker using tongs or spatula or tilt the skillet and empty it into the serving platter. Serve with dipping sauce.
