I have a deep fondness for potstickers. They remind me of cherished weekend lunches with my mom when I was growing up, and now I delight in making them for my own children. It’s incredible how a simple dish can hold so many precious memories.
But let me tell you, there’s a specific method I employ to cook frozen potstickers that guarantees perfectly crisp bottoms every time. No steamed potstickers for us. We stick to the name and ensure our potstickers truly stick to the pan.
Make Them Crisp and Delicious
Let’s start with the basics. Begin by heating a little oil in a hot pan. It’s important that the potstickers don’t touch, so you may need to cook them in batches. Depending on the size of your pan and family, you may want to make two rounds of cooking.
Now it’s time to add water. The exact measurements will depend on the size of your pan, so consult the directions on the bag. For reference, I usually use 3/4 cup of water.
Wait for the water to come to a boil. This typically means setting the heat to medium-high, but adjust accordingly for your stove. Once the water is boiling, cover the pan and let the potstickers steam for approximately 8 minutes, until the water has evaporated.
At this point, remove the lid but keep the potstickers in the pan for another minute. This is where the magic happens—the bottoms turn a beautiful golden brown. Keep a close eye on them, as they can burn quickly if left unattended.
Ling Ling Potstickers for the Win
I must give credit where credit is due. Ling Ling potstickers have earned our loyalty. Their range of flavors is outstanding, but today we’re making the Chicken & Vegetable variety. With a large bag of Ling Ling potstickers in the freezer, we’re always prepared for impromptu guests or last-minute cravings.
Celebrate Lunar New Year with Ling Ling
Lunar New Year, which falls on February 5th, is the perfect occasion to indulge in Ling Ling potstickers. In honor of this festive season, I decided to tap into our creative side and explore our January We Craft Box, which happened to be themed around Chinese New Year.
We began by crafting clay Dragon eggs and then proceeded to construct our own dragons. Both of my girls were absolutely thrilled. It was a memorable day spent together, filled with joy and inspiration.
Of course, we couldn’t miss the chance to savor Ling Ling’s frozen potstickers for lunch. Both my girls absolutely adore potstickers, and I personally enjoy mine with a drizzle of red wine vinegar and soy sauce. Don’t forget to try the delectable signature dipping sauce included in the Ling Ling bag—it’s a real treat!
