Pulled Pork Potstickers

I was looking for a new use for leftover pulled pork, so I made some potstickers.

For filling I chopped up the pork, added sauteed onions, carrots and celery. I moistened the top edge of the wonton wrapper and crimped the top. I used a pre-heated cast iron skillet with a little oil.

In go the potstickers. After 10 minutes, I poured in 1/4 cup water and cooked 10 more minutes.

After the 10 minutes:

They came out great, and crispy on the bottom. I served with 3 different dipping sauces.

Give them a try sometime.

    Wow, that looks delicious. Cooked on a mini? I ask as I'm considering adding a mini to my medium.
  • I love cooking on the mini. Last night, in addition to the potstickers, I made salmon on a cedar plank (cut to fit), and chicken thighs.

    Novabill, I think it would be a great addition to your medium.

    Oh.... I forgot to ask. What size is the CI fryer? I'll have to get a new hack saw blade to shorten the handle ;)
  • It's an 8" skillet.

    I forgot to add that I put some finely chopped cabbage in the potstickers.

    YetiBob, they are simple and I don't think you can screw them up. Also, versatile, you can use all types of fillings. I will do shrimp next time.

    Thank you, Richard.

    Those look delicious. What were the dipping sauces?....

    Those look very tasty Faith

  • Thanks, guys.

    Kim, one was a horseradish sauce that Ross made, one was a spicy soy and sesame oil sauce, and the other was the Mojo Criollo that you like to use. I liked the soy one the best.

    Also, Kim, last night I made your onions. They were great! Thanks.

    I have as Asian friend who occasionally makes a huge batch of potstickers (you should see how fast she can fold and crimp those suckers) and brings us some to freeze. I have not tried cooking them on the Egg - great idea, Faith.

    I think I now have a place to take leftover pulled pork - will get potstickers in return. :woohoo:

    Kim,

    I just bought a bag of Vidalia onions yesterday. Do you have your recipe handy?

    Thanks,
  • vidalia1vidalia1 Posts: 7,091
    Bill,

    It is on the right hand side under recipes but here you go:

    VIDALIA ONION CASSEROLE

    2 sticks melted butter (let this cool off for a few minutes before mixing)
    2 sleeves of Ritz crackers crushed (I do this in a large Ziploc bag with a rolling pin)
    2 Lg sweet onions cut into pieces not chopped
    1 pound Mozzarella cheese grated

    Combine melted butter and crushed Ritz in the Ziploc bag and mix well.
    Layer half of the Ritz, butter combination in a baking dish or CI skillet
    Layer half of the onion pieces on the crackers
    Layer half of the cheese on the onions
    Repeat
    Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes.

    Enjoy

    Very nice, those are gorgeous Faith. Sure hope they tasted as good as they look.

    I sure would like to see the recipe for the finishing sauces if you have time.

  • Kim, I made the whole viadlia's that you posted the other day. Hollowed them out a little, placed a pat of butter and 1 tsp. of Better than Bouillon beef base (comes in a jar near the boillon cubes), you can use a cube as well. Wrapped in foil, cooked in oven 1 hour at 350 and put them on the egg for 15 minutes with the foil opened up on top.

    Here it is pictured below the corn.
    Delish!

  • GG, we were just playing with the sauces and didn't use any recipe. Ross made the horseradish one with mayo ( I know - he's weird but he likes horseradish on everything!). The other two were just stuff out of the fridge, soy sauce with hot chili sauce mixed with a little sesame oil. The last one was a spanish style marinade called Mojo Criolo that we mixed with some bottled salad dressing.

    Thank you, once my butts are pulled from the egg and I get two pizzas cooked I'm going to try your recipe - can't get enough good onions.
  • What a great idea!

    I am always looking for different ways to use pulled pork. We buy the two pack Boston Butts from BJ's so we end up with so much that we freeze dinner portions for burritos/quesadillas...etc

    I will add this to the list, those look good.

    I'll have to try some on the egg. I make several dozen at a time and freeze them on a sheet of wax paper, then bag 'em up for cooking later.

  • Those look great Thirdeye. Good crimping. It's a great idea to make them ahead. Mine got slightly browned on top from the egg, which doesn't happen on the stovetop.

    Faith, this mold makes production so much faster and like thirdeye says they freeze uncooked very well. Get the round wonton skins for the mold.

    Wow, never seen a mold for them, but you are right, I use the round wrappers and they go really fast.
