We’re a knife company – which means we love the tactile feel of a good blade in our hands when we create mounds of perfectly shredded food.

Pure. Bliss.

But, we also enjoy not burning our hands while we make dough. No one wants to hear, “Ouch!” coming out of the test kitchen. So, when we make a dough using boiling hot water, we turn to the food processor.

Look, Ma! No tender fingers here!

And we do want boiling water in our potsticker dough because it helps to make the dough pliable. Note: This dough is so soft you may want to curl up with it and binge-watch a British drama.

But, don’t give into the temptation! You’re going to turn this dough into amazing potstickers, and then you’re going to dip them into a spicy sauce that’s loaded with sesame oil and mirin.

Hello, dipping perfection!

Bonus: You can freeze the dough for different fillings. 

Double Bonus: When you get these assembled you can freeze them in a single layer on a cookie sheet then toss them in a bag for an easy weeknight dinner.

Consider it a present to yourself – from yourself.

Now round up those ingredients, get a large cutting board ready, grab that F.N. Sharp Chef Knife (and maybe even a boning knife, too – you’ll see why), and let’s get to potsticking and dipping!
