These are not the most traditional pot stickers, in fact they resemble the Japanese version, Gyoza, more. Traditional pot stickers use raw pork mixture, almost like a meatball with hand rolled dough, nonetheless, these made pretty good Gyoza. As for step 4, it really is based on ones taste and equipment, I usually coat the bottom of the pan with a thin layer of oil(adding too much will make the oil pop out a ton), arrange the pot stickers closely and pan fry the bottom for a couple of minutes, then add water, but only enough to steam (I usually add 1/3 cup for my sized pan). I don't want to make the potstickers to become soggy. Put the lid on to steam cook and wait 3-4 minutes or until water fully evaporated for cooked pork filling. With raw pork, I tend to let it stay on longer with more water. I also added about a half cup of chinese chives and totally cut out the chestnuts because of personally taste.
