We’ve never celebrated Chinese New Year, but Asia is at the very top of my kids travel wish list. With Chinese New Year coming up it seemed like the perfect opportunity to learn more about their culture as a family. And what better way to learn than with food.
To start things off I tried my hand at making some homemade pork potstickers. I grabbed some ground pork from the meat counter, cabbage, green onions, fresh garlic, hoisin sauce, sesame oil, ginger, pepper, and a package of won ton wrappers. I started by mixing all my ingredients together and then putting a teaspoon of the mixture into the middle of a won ton wrapper. I used my finger to rub the edges of the won ton wrapper with water, then folded the wrapper over, pinching the edges to make sure it was sealed.
Once my won ton wrappers were filled I placed the potstickers in a single layer into a large skillet, drizzled with vegetable oil, over medium heat. I cooked the potstickers for 3 minutes on each side, they were golden crispy and the meat was cooked through.
To go along with my potstickers I picked up the Pagoda Mini Chicken Eggrolls, 34 count pack from Walmart. Pagoda products are great because they are make with 100% white meat chicken and have no MSG and no artificial colors. Right now you can get $.50 off 2 Pagoda products at Ibotta.
My food spread for Chinese New Year is all ready. I also grabbed some Pagoda Express Cream Cheese Wontons to top things off. I’ve red envelopes to go at the kids place setting for dinner.
