These were amazing. I was pretty heavy-handed with the cabbage and spinach so there was enough filling to make about 60 pot stickers and the pork/shrimp flavor was still great. My husband and I loved these.
Hand-Hacked Pot Stickers

Great recipe, makes about 70 good size pot stickers. I froze them in a single layer between plastic wrap, then placed them in a zip-lock bag in the freezer until I needed them. I followed the rest of the cooking directions with the frozen pot stickers. I only used about 1/2 c. chicken broth for each of 2 batches.

I left city life behind 10 years ago and with it some wonderful authentic Pot Sticker hole in the walls in New York City. The only pot stickers I've had since I moved to "country life" have come out of a box from the freezer. I came across this recipe by chance and, after reading comments, decided to try it. OMG!!!! If I had closed my eyes while I was eating them, I could probably have taken myself back to Pot Sticker heaven. These are wonderful. I was missing spinich so I used an other 1/2 cup of cabbage. Tried a slightly different method of cooking the first batch but went back to the way the recipe called for cooking. This recipe is perfect just the way it is and truly authentic.

These were yummy, but would definitely prefer to serve as appetizers rather than a main course. A lot of effort, but freeze well.

These are pretty putsy to assemble, but if you make a large quantity and freeze a bunch for later, it is well worth it. Like others suggested, I used only about half of the recommended chicken broth/stock. I also made the chili-garlic dipping sauce from another cooking light potsticker recipe (new years dumplings), and the combo was delicious.

I had to make do with square wonton wrappers, so the presentation may not have come out as it should. I omitted spinach and pork, and used extra cabbage and shrimp. It made about 33 pot stickers. Flavor was really good! As recommended by previous reviewers, I cut the broth amount by approx half. I had a little trouble keeping wrappers from tearing while cooking them, but it wasn't TOO bad. Looking forward to eating the extras that I froze!

Fabulous recipe. A little time consuming, but well worth it.
