How To Make PF Chang's Potstickers (Copycat)

This PF Chang pot stickers recipe creates mouthwatering dumplings packed with spicy-savory ground pork. It has a crisp outer layer for the perfect crunchy on the outside, tender on the inside bite.

Prep: 30 mins
Cook: 25 mins
Total: 55 mins


  • ½ lb ground pork
  • ¼ cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger, ground
  • 1 tsp chili paste
  • ½ tsp sesame oil
  • 3 tbsp green onions, finely chopped
  • 36 gyoza wrappers, round
  • 2 cups water, plus more


  1. Take out a bowl and mix together all of the ingredients except for the gyoza wrappers.
  2. Put two tsp. filling in the middle of each dumpling skin.
  3. Apply a small amount of water the edges of the wrappers and then fold the dumpling skin in half.
  4. Press to seal the edges of the potstickers against each other.
  5. You can also use an egg wash to seal the edges of the dumplings together.
  6. Take out your crockpot and find a colander that fits inside of it.
  7. Fill the crockpot with 2 cups water and set it to high heat.
  8. Once the water is simmering, place the colander inside the crockpot with the dome facing up.
  9. Gently push the colander into the crockpot until the water level is around 1/2-inch away from the dome.
  10. Place the potstickers onto the colander and over the water.
  11. It is important to not let the water touch the potstickers.
  12. Place paper towels over the crockpot and then cover with the lid.
  13. Cook for about eight minutes.
  14. Slice one of the potstickers in half to make sure it is cooked through.
  15. When they are cooked through, cook all of the prepared dumplings and serve.
