Pork Potstickers

With the holiday season behind us I’m not starting to think about how I can get healthier in January. Every year I question why I overindulge at Christmas but with a few little changes I can easily get my body back on track.

One of the biggest transitions is getting all of the sugar out of my system and transitioning from heavier foods to lightened meals.

I like to do a little bit of a detox in January to get all of the junk out of my system. I find that eating a lot of salads and steamed vegetables help to get my body back on track. The OPA by Litehouse dressings are a great way to top my salads without all of the extra fat and calories. There are also a lot of great recipes right here on Living Litehouse that inspire me throughout the week.

One of my favorite lighter meals is potstickers. They can be really filling and 4-5 of them make a perfect meal. They are also super easy to make! There are a lot of different ways that you can fill them but I prefer a classic pork stuffing. Rehydrating the Instantly Fresh herbs allows you to dice them a bit smaller so that they are evenly disbursed between all of the potstickers. Placing a lid on the pan while you cook these will both steam and crisp up the bottoms of the potstickers, allowing you to use less oil.

As hard as it will be to break your body of the sugar and junk food cravings it won’t take too long until you start feeling the results. Start your new year out on a healthier note!

Pork Potstickers Recipe

Serves 4 | Finish in 20 minutes

Potstickers are super quick and easy to make and are a filling lunch option.


½ pound ground pork
1 teaspoon Instantly Fresh Ginger
1 teaspoon Instantly Fresh Garlic
1 teaspoon Instantly Fresh Chives
½ cup chopped nappa cabbage
20 wonton wrappers
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Salt & Pepper
Litehouse Sesame Ginger dressing


Place the ginger, garlic and chives into a small bowl and add in ¼ cup of water to rehydrate. Leave for 10 minutes.

Remove the herbs from the water and chop finely. Place them in a bowl with the pork, cabbage and season with salt and pepper.

Lay out 1 wonton wrapper and place 1 tablespoon of filling in the center. Dip your finger into a dish of water and run it around the edge of the wrapper. Fold over the wrap, creating a triangle and press the edges to seal. Repeat with the remaining wraps and filling.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add in the vegetable oil. Place the potstickers in a single layer and cover with a lid. Cook for 2-3 minutes and then turn them over and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes. Remove them from the pan and serve immediately with a side of Sesame Ginger dressing.
