How to Make Traditional Chinese Potstickers

The Dumpling Sisters are back with a recipe for authentic Chinese pork potstickers.  Yesterday we shared their amazing recipe for Siu Mai, a pork and shrimp dumpling commonly eaten during dim sum.  Every component of this recipe is made from scratch including the dumpling dough - no refrigerated wrappers here! These are guaranteed to be the best potstickers you have ever tasted.
