Make the Filling

  2. Chop up the pickles and onions finely and add it to bowl
  3. Add in the ground beef, miso and mustard
  4. Once the bacon is done, chop it up and add it to the bowl
  5. Mix everything together with your hands

Folding the Potstickers

  1. Get a small bowl of water, this will be the ‚Äúglue‚ÄĚ for the potstickers
  2. Add about 1 tsp of filling onto the middle of the skins. Careful not to over stuff them
  3. On the edges of the potstickers apply a bit of water with your fingers
  4. The simplest way to fold these without going all fancy on pleats is just folding them in half and squeezing the ends together to form a half moon.

Frying the Potstickers

  1. On medium-low heat, pre-heat your non-stick frying pan with some oil.
  2. Place the dumplings in a single layer and don’t let them touch each other.
  3. Cook them for about 3-4 minutes until the bottoms are golden brown and crispy.
  4. Once brown, add 1/4 cup of water into the pan and put a lid on to steam it for 4-5 minutes or until the water has evaporated
  5. Once we are done steaming, remove the lid and let it cook again to crisp up for 1-2 minutes. Carefully peel them off the frying pan to make sure they are not stuck to the pan and then continue to brown them until the bottoms are crispy again.
  6. Serve with mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard or just plain!
