Keep the finishing dumplings under a moist towel while you work. 2. To make pot stickers, put the peanut oil in a large, deep skillet and run the heat to medium-high. Place the dumplings, one at a time, into the skillet, seam side up. Do not crowd; cook in two batches if necessary. Cover the pot and cook for about 5 minutes. Uncover and add � C water to the pot; re-cover and cook another 2 minutes, then uncover and cook about 3 minutes more, or until water has evaporated. Remove the dumplings with a spatula and serve with Soy & Sesame Dipping Sauce or Marinade. 3. To steam the dumplings, set up a steamer; to improvise, fit a heatproof plate or a rack above 1 inch or so of boiling water in a covered pot. Steam the dumplings in one or two batches, for about 10 minutes per batch. Serve hot with dipping sauce.
