  • 1/2 tsp. sesame oil

  • Take out a bowl and mix together all of the ingredients except for the gyoza wrappers.
  • Put two tsp. filling in the middle of each dumpling skin.
  • Apply a small amount of water the edges of the wrappers and then fold the dumpling skin in half.

  • Fill the crockpot with 2 cups water and set it to high heat.
  • Once the water is simmering, place the colander inside the crockpot with the dome facing up.
  • Gently push the colander into the crockpot until the water level is around 1/2-inch away from the dome.
  • Place the potstickers onto the colander and over the water.
  • It is important to not let the water touch the potstickers.
  • Place paper towels over the crockpot and then cover with the lid.
  • Cook for about eight minutes.
