Potstickers are meaty dumplings that are steamed and then pan-fried until wonderfully crispy and chewy. They can be enjoyed as an appetizer or as a meal. They freeze well, too. This recipe includes how to make the wrapper as well as the filling. The beefy filling is juicy, savory and bold with soy sauce, Hoisin sauce and even a bit of gochujang for a just hint of heat. Serve with a gingery dipping sauce, if you like.
