Pot Stickers

I LOVE these pot stickers, so I have to share the recipe here. I originally got the recipe from this website and have made them many times. Now I am totally craving them! Totally worth the effort!

Pot Stickers
1/2 lb. Ground Pork (NOT PORK SAUSAGE)
1/2 lb. deviened raw shrimp (chopped)
1/4 Cup Green Onions (Chopped)
4 tsp. grated fresh Ginger Root
1/4 Cup Shredded Carrot (a cheese grater works great)
2 Tbs. Cooking Sherry
2 Tbs. Soy Sauce
1 tsp. Sesame Oil
1 Egg (beaten)
Won ton Wrappers (found in the produce section of most stores- next to the tofu) Round, or Square work fine.

Combine ingredients and put by spoonful into won tons. Do not overload, or you won't be able to close the won ton. Wet the edge of the won ton, and seal by pressing closed with your fingers. Fry the won ton on one side in oil in a fry pan on medium heat. You can cut down on calories by spraying the pan with Pam, instead of using oil. But if things get too "sticky" use oil. After the bottoms are browned, add 3/4 cups water, or chicken broth and cover. Reduce heat to medium low. Set the timer for 6 to 8 minutes, (until the water has cooked off for the most part) Remove lid and boil of the rest of the water.

Dipping Sauce:
1 Part soy sauce
1 tsp Ginger Root (grated)
1 Part Rice Vinegar
Green Onions

Serve over Japanese Sticky Rice.
