Kid Loving Beef Pot Stickers with Ginger Sauce
My kids assembled ALL of these! Yes, it was amazing. I cooked the beef in less than 8 minutes, let it cool + they did the rest. Try it with your kids...or your spouse! It's a labor of love after all.
We loves these pot stickers. The beef filling is simple with tons of fresh ginger, garlic + coconut aminos. The wonton wrappers get very crispy while leaving the filling nice + warm....the perfect combination to be dipped. The ginger soy sauce has 3 ingredients so it comes together very quickly.
Tiny fingers + hands make light work for this Mama! Try them + let me know what you think.
Kid Loving Beef Pot Stickers with Ginger Soy Sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1/2 lb ground beef, grass fed is best (we buy ours from Five Marys)
2 tablespoons yellow onion, chopped finely
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 pinch of sea salt
2 tablespoons fresh ginger, chopped
2 tablespoons coconut aminos
1 package of wonton wrappers
4 tablespoons coconut oil, divided
In a medium sized saucepan, heat the sesame oil over medium heat. Add the ground beef + cook for 4 minutes or until about 1/2 way cooked. Add in the onions + garlic. Stir occasionally to combine + turn over the mixture. When all the meat is cooked through (no longer pink), turn off the heat. Add in the salt, ginger + coconut aminos. Let sit to cool.
Mix the egg up in a small bowl. Lay out 1 wonton wrapper at a time. Using a teaspoon, spoon some of the meat mixture onto the center of the wrapper. Dip a brush or your finger into the egg mixture. Trace the edges of the wonton wrapper with the egg mixture - in a square shape.
Bring the two opposite corners together. Press the edges together until they seal. Set on a baking sheet. Repeat this process until all the ground beef mixture is used.
Heat a non stick sauce pan up over medium heat. Add 1-2 tablespoons of oil to the pan. Heat up until the pan sizzles when a drop of water is added. Add 4-6 wontons at a time to the pan - don't want to crowd them.
Cook on the first side for 2 minutes or until it is mostly brown + crispy. Flip over to cook the other side. Remove from pan when it is mostly brown + crispy. Place on a serving plate or another baking sheet.
If not serving them right away - they can we reheated in the oven at 300F for 5 minutes. Serve warm with the ginger soy sauce.
Ginger Soy Sauce
1/3 cup liquid aminos (or soy sauce)
1 teaspoon ginger, grated or minced
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
Mix everything in a small serving dish or bowl. Serve with warm pot stickers.
