  • 10 slices provolone or mozzarella cheese

  • 1/4 lb ground pork
  • 1/3 cup finely shredded cabbage
  • 1/2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 3/4 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp water


  • 2 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 tsp chili oil


  • Preheat oven to 375°F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Place cheese slices onto lined baking sheets, spreading them at least 1 inch apart. Bake in oven for 4-6 minutes or until edges of the cheese slices are brown.
  • While the cheese is cooking, prepare the potsticker filling. Add ground pork, cabbage, sesame oil, soy sauce and water to a medium bowl. Mix until everything is evenly combined. The meat should look like a paste.
  • Bring a skillet to medium high heat. Add in filling. Cook, crumbling the meat as it cooks, until everything is just cooked. Turn off heat and cover with lid to keep it from getting dry.
  • Remove cheese from oven. Working quickly, add 1 tbsp of filling to the top half of each cheese wrapper, making sure to leave about 1/2 inch around the edges free. Bring the bottom half of the wrapper over the filling and up to meet the top half of the wrapper, so that you end up with a folded half circle. Do not be worried if the wrapper does not seal, however it should hold its folded shape. If the wrapper flops back to a full circle, this means your cheese has cooled down too much. (If this happens, you can pop the baking sheet back into the oven and cook for about 1-2 minutes until the cheese is melted and malleable again. Then repeat with the folding and this time the cheese should stay folded.)
  • Place dumplings back into the oven and cook for about 2 minutes or until the cheese has melted enough to seal the potstickers.
  • At this point, you want to crisp up the rest of the potsticker. This can be done one of two ways.

    Oven method: Set your oven to low broil. Broil about 2 minutes or until surface of potstickers are brown.Stove method: Bring a nonstick skillet to medium-high heat. Place a few potstickers into the skillet and pan-fry a few seconds on each side until cheese is brown and crispy. You do not need to add oil to the nonstick pan as there is enough oil from the cheese.

  • Serve potstickers while they are warm with dipping sauce. To make the dipping sauce, whisk together all the ingredients. Taste and adjust sauce as needed.
