I lived in Boston for several years. When I first moved to the neighborhood of Brookline, I was a little upset about the grocery store situation. I lived about a mile away from a traditional grocery store, and without a car, that was a lot. There was a Trader Joes just a block away, but I had never heard of Trader Joes before, and thought it looked too small. After a while I started to hear some good reviews of this Trader Joes place, and was cold and tired after walking to the far away grocery store, so decided to give it a try. Everyone probably knows what happened next – I fell in love.

Before going to Trader Joes, I had not eaten pot stickers. On a random trip to TJs one day, I saw an intriguing bag of Pot Stickers, and decided to give them a try. Again, I fell in love. As a student loving quick, easy meals, potstickers fell quickly into my weekly rotation.

At some point I began to make pot stickers myself, which allowed me to put whatever flavors I was craving into them. For whatever reason, probably the fact I have two tiny kids, they’ve fallen out of my rotation over the last few years. But recently I saw someone making them on Diners Drive-ins and Dives, and started craving them again. So, it was time to get back at them.

I’m going to be honest, I’m a little nervous about posting this potsticker recipe. I love Asian food. But, when I make Asian food, it’s a lot of “Asian ingredient A plus Asian ingredient B plus this random thing I like tastes delicious to me, so I’m putting them together!” I’m worried that someone who truly knows Asian cooking will read this and say, “this chick has no idea what she’s doing.”

And I’m going to be honest again. My husband did not care for these. But, me, I loved them … and my kids, they loved them too. I will not post things not approved by at least two adults, so, I asked my friend Erin to eat some and give me her honest opinion. Erin ate some the day after I made them, straight out of the fridge cold, at 10am, and still said she was team ‘these are great!’ So, since two is greater than one, and I know they’re awesome, I’m sharing the recipe with you!

Ground turkey and vegetable potstickers. Quick, easy, perfect for a weeknight dinner. And delicious!

Course: Dinner
Cuisine: Asian
Keyword: Ground Turkey Pot Stickers
Servings: 6 people
Calories: 235 kcal
Ingredients
  • 1.25 pounds ground turkey
  • 3-4 tbsp vegetable oil divided
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger grated
  • 2 cloves fresh garlic
  • 1 onion diced
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/2 cup roasted red peppers
  • 1 teaspoon Chinese 5 Spice
  • pinch red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tbsp reduced sodium soy sauce
  • ~8 sheets of egg roll wrappers
  • Teriyaki Sauce or soy sauce for serving I have a strong preference for Kikkomam Teriyakia (original Takumi collection)
Instructions
  1. Heat 1 tbsp oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add ginger and garlic. Cook for about 30 seconds.
  2. Add onion and shredded carrots. Cook until vegetables start to soften, about 3 minutes.
  3. Add roasted ground turkey, red peppers, Chinese 5 spice, red pepper flakes, salt, and soy sauce. Stir constantly until turkey is cooked through, about 4-5 minutes.
  4. Transfer ingredients to a large blender. Pulse several times, until ingredients are well mixed, and some clumps remain.
  5. Cut egg roll wrappers into 4 squares. Place about 1 tbsp of turkey mixture into center of wrapper.
  6. Use water to wet outside of wrapper and press edges together so that it makes a triangle shaped pot sticker. Place each triangle in a single layer on a baking sheet.

  7. Heat another tbsp of oil over medium-high heat in large skillet. Place potstickers in skillet and cook for about 1 minute per side, or until lightly browned. Remove and place aside. Add more potstickers, and oil as needed, until all are cooked.

  8. Serve with soy sauce or teriyaki sauce. I prefer teriyaki sauce.
