One of my favorite things to order out is Potstickers. It got me wanting to make a gluten free version of this yummy dish at home. The problem being that there a no gluten free pot sticker wrappers out there that I know of. So instead I used Rice Spring Roll Wrappers that are naturally gluten free, and they worked great! I will be making a lot more potstickers now! I got the thumbs up from everyone.

Spring Rolls Skin ( gluten free rice paper rolls)
Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a large saute pan or wok over high heat. Saute cabbage, and pork, stirring occasionally, until translucent, 2 to 3 minutes. Season with 1/2 teaspoon salt, and transfer to a large bowl. Heat another tablespoon vegetable oil, and saute onion, stirring occasionally, until just softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Season with 1/2 teaspoon salt, add to bowl with cabbage, and let cool 5 minutes.
Heat 2 teaspoons vegetable oil in pan over medium heat, and saute chives until just tender, about 1 minute. Transfer to chopped cabbage mixture, and let cool. Stir in scallions, garlic, pork, sesame seeds, sesame oil, 3/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
For the dipping sauce: Stir together soy sauce, vinegar, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a small bowl; set dipping sauce aside.
Working with 1 wrapper at a time, put in warm water until softened (usually 30 seconds)
Lay out flat and put 4 scoop fulls of the meat mixture.
Then top with another softened rice paper sheet. Slice into 4 servings, and set aside until you are ready to fry them.
Repeat until all filling is used.
Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil until shimmering, and sear dumplings until browned, about 1 minute per side. Serve potstickers with dipping sauce.
