The Humble Pot Sticker

At Restaurant Supply, we love food. It doesn’t matter what type of food you like, there’s most likely someone here who loves it as well. We’ve devoted time on this blog to French fries and dim sum, but we’ve been remiss. We haven’t spent enough time talking about the pot sticker.

There are variations of the pot sticker in nearly every Asian culture. There are gyoza in Japan, there are mandu in Korea, and there are momo in Nepal. No matter what you call them, there are two components which make up the pot sticker: the dough and the filling. The method of cooking also changes, but whether steamed or pan fried, they are always delicious.

The dough of the pot sticker is usually a simple flour and water mixture rolled out to envelop a small dollop of filling. The gyoza usually has a thinner covering, where the pot sticker has a thicker version.

Filling can be made of pork, chicken, shrimp, or anything that the chef desires. If it can be ground, then it can become filling for these wonderful morsels. There are even vegetarian versions of pot stickers for those who prefer them.

We adore pot stickers and would love to hear more about where the best pot stickers can be found.
