Cabbage Wrapped Beef Pot Stickers


  • 1/2 head of cabbage
  • 1 lbs ground beef raw 95% /5% is best or use ground turkey
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onion
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce (or 2 tablespoons liquid aminos)
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoon sesame oil



  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Wash and cut the cabbage in half.

  2. Cut the core from each half of the cabbage by slicing it out in a triangular wedge..

  3. Separate the larger outer cabbage leaves from both halves, and then add to boiling water. (Save remaining cabbage for another meal). Boil for 2 minutes, until cabbage is crisp-tender. You will need 1-2 leafs for each pot sticker.

  4. Use a slotted spoon to transfer cooked cabbage to a plate of paper towels to drain.

  5. Prepare the pot sticker filling by combining beef, chopped green onions, sesame oil, soy sauce, ground ginger and garlic powder in a mixing bowl. Mix well.

  6. Place a large nonstick pan over medium heat and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Form the filling into thick oval patties about the shape and size of your thumb. I ended up with potstickers.

  7. Place the filling patties into the pan and cook about 4 minutes on each side, until cutting into one shows no pink throughout.

  8. Wrap cooked patties in cabbage leaves and secure with toothpicks. Pan fry “dumplings” for 2-3 mins on medium-high heat until desired crispiness.

Serve with 1/2 cup of rice, not in recipe or ingredients. Makes 4 servings

8 potstickers per serving
