Directions

  1. MUSHROOM SOUP BASE:
  2. Chop sliced Shiitake mushrooms into small pieces. Heat canola oil over medium heat in a 4-quart pan. Add sesame oil, garlic, ginger and bok choy stems.
  3. Cook, stirring constantly, for about 1 minute.
  4. Add soy sauce and mushrooms. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, for 8-10 minutes.
  5. Remove 1 cup of cooked mushroom mixture, and reserve for later.
  6. Add chicken broth. Adjust heat to maintain low simmer, and cover.
  7. POT STICKERS:
  8. In a medium bowl, combine pork and reserved 1 cup of cooked mushroom mixture. Mix in garlic, ginger, and soy sauce. Mix in cilantro and green onion. Mix until well combined.
  9. Spoon about 2 teaspoons of pork-mushroom filling into center of pot sticker wrapper. Use some chicken broth or water to dampen around the edge of the wrapper. With fingers, press the 2 sides of the wrapper together to form a semicircle shape. Gently press the bottom of the pot sticker on a flat surface to form flattened bottom. Repeat to form 18 pot stickers.
  10. Heat canola oil over medium heat in large (12-inch or larger) nonstick skillet. Place pot stickers seam side up in skillet, and cook over medium heat for about 3-4 minutes or until the bottoms are golden brown.
  11. Add 1/4 cup of chicken broth or water, and cover pan with lid. Reduce heat and allow to steam for 5 minutes.

  14. SERVE:
  15. Arrange 3 pot stickers in each bowl. Ladle soup over pot stickers. If desired, garnish with additional green onions and cilantro.
