FOR THE POTSTICKERS
1/2 pound ground boar
2 cups finely chopped green or Savoy cabbage
2 tsp salt freshly ground black pepper
1 TBSP minced ginger
1 TBSP minced garlic
2 TBSP soy sauce
6 green onions, sliced thinly
1 egg, beaten
24 potsticker wrappers
FOR THE SAUCE
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
1/4 cup sliced scallions
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon sugar
1 jalapeño, thinly sliced (optional)
1 TBSP lard or oil
1 cup water
In a bowl, mix the cabbage and salt together and let stand for 30 minutes at room temperature. Drain the cabbage in a colander, pushing down on it to remove as much water as possible. Once well drained, combine the remaining non-sauce ingredients, except for the wrappers, in a bowl and mix very well.
For the sauce, combine all of the sauce ingredients in a separate bowl.
Place a small mound (about a tablespoon) of filling in the middle of each wrapper, keeping it centered. Fold the wrapper in half to form a half moon shape and pinch the wrapper tightly together, making a tiny fold. Repeat folding and pinching until the potsticker is tightly sealed. Place the finished dumplings on a parchment paper-lined tray and cover with a damp towel until they’re all done.
Have ready a tight-fitting lid for a large saute pan. Heat the lard in the pan over high heat and then add the dumplings, flat-side down. Sear the potstickers for a couple of minutes until nicely browned, then carefully add the water — it will splatter — and cover with the lid. Forcefully steam the dumplings for 4 minutes, then check the pan. The water should be mostly evaporated. Remove the lid and continue to cook until the water is all gone and the potstickers start to brown a bit again — the sound will go from a steamy bubble to a sizzle. Stay alert. At this point, they’re ready. Gently remove them from the pan with a spatula.
Serve with the dipping sauce.
