1 cup finely chopped cooked pork tenderloin
1/3 cup finely chopped green cabbage
1/3 cup minced celery
1/4 cup minced green onion
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon dry sherry
6 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon vegetable oil, divided
1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
36 wonton wrappers
1 cup water
Chinese mustard
Soy sauce


1. In a medium bowl combine pork, cabbage, celery and green onion; mix well. Combine soy sauce, sherry and 1 teaspoon oil; stir in cornstarch until dissolved. Pour soy mixture over pork mixture; toss to coat. Cover and chill 30 minutes.
2. Spoon about 2 teaspoons filling in center of one wrapper. Bring up sides of wrapper diagonally to form a triangle, seal edges with water. Transfer to a baking sheet and cover with a dry cloth. Repeat with remaining wrappers.
3. In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil. Carefully place half the pot stickers in skillet without letting sides touch. Cook over medium heat 1 minute or until bottoms are browned. Carefully add 1/2 cup water to skillet. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 10 minutes. Uncover and cook about 4 minutes or until water evaporates. Add more oil, if necessary, to prevent sticking. Cook, uncovered, 1 minute. Remove pot stickers from skillet, keep warm. Repeat procedure with remaining pot stickers, oil and water. Serve with Chinese mustard and soy sauce for dipping.

The aroma and flavors of these addictive appetizers are worth the many steps involved in making them. Enlist one or two kitchen helpers to assemble the potstickers ahead of time, keep covered with a kitchen towel until ready to cook.
