Guotie (Potstickers)

Guotie, also known as potstickers in North America, is a Northern Chinese style dumpling popular as a street food, appetizer, or side order. The filling for this dish usually contains pork, cabbage, sesame seed oil, ginger and scallions.

Guotie is is pan-fried jiaozi, three or five folds are made on one side of the round wrapper that is rolled so that the edges are thinner than the middle. This gives the base a large surface area that helps to give the dumpling stability to stand up in the pan.
