锅贴 (饺子) Pot Stickers

A fiend of mine teach me how to make 锅贴(饺子)more then 15 years ago, I seldom make them as I find it too much work, especially making the wrapper, but nowadays I just buy the ready made wrapper and it taste just as good. Made this for my son and husband yesterday lunch, and my husband send me a text to says that it is yummy. 😂
