Before you start, understand that this is a fairly labor intensive recipe, and unless you are a magician, be prepared for a big mess in the kitchen! Admittedly, this is my first attempt at making pot stickers, and many reviews mentioned concern over the cooking method of adding water to hot oil. I, too, was concerned, and justifiably so. I had oil splattered everywhere once the water hit the pot (I did these in batches in a dutch oven)...that's the mess I'm talking about. Followed the recipe to the letter, except I didn't make the sauce, and after the first batch, I cut back on the oil (added no oil after they'd steamed). I used the Plum Sauce recipe from this site which was terrific. The one negative thing that I have to say is that they really were pretty oily, and I don't ever remember that from having them in a restaurant, fried or steamed. On the positive side, they were very tasty, but I'm not sure I have the patience for the clean-up again. If I decide to give this another try, it'll be a while!
