Pot Stickers @ Costco

topic posted Mon, November 21, 2005 - 6:08 PM by  Richard
Costco sell Pot Stickers by the name of Ling Ling's, various fillings, Chicken, Pork, Veggie. I enjoy boiling a few! okay I'll admit more than a few. and then pan fry in a healthy oil, mixed with either crushed red pepper or Cayenne. I forgo the soy sauce. Perfect with a beverage of your choice. Great snack or lite dinner with a salad.

    Right on. Trader Joe's sells similar. Frozen, I sprinkle 'em with water cover 'em with plastic and nuke 'em. Taste great with a light soy sauce!

      Ling Ling's that you get at a health food store, I dunno if it's the same as Costco but it's got the best _sauce_ , baby.
      And you gotta admit it's all about the sauce.
      I prefer the chicken over do many others I know....

    those are good. no need to boil though - just put in a shallow pan, sear with oil on one side, then add about a 1/2C water, cover and they are steamed in about 6 minutes.

      I am so addicted to Ling Ling potstickers I have to keep some in my freezer at all times, in case of an emergency! Also, they have really great spinach ravioli there that are pretty low on calories and fat and easy too!

        My son lOVES those spinach ravioli and I definitely buy them for him --- one of the great ways of getting him to eat veggies and it's lowfat for me!

          Don't forget to look at sodium content. Also pay attention to the kind of salt. Refined salts are chemicals that were not part of human diet for most of our existence, and our anatomy still does not efficiently process them. The human body is designed around a diet of mostly fruit and vegetables, and rarely, small portions of meat. Dairy, while delicious, is extremely hard to digest. Redined sugar is addictive and damaging to the systems of the body which are responsible for maintaining steady blood sugar levels. That being said, eat what you like. Just make sure you know what you're eating.

    Hehe...just read the label on the TJ's variety...3% fat *per serving* -- serving size = 2.

    Thinking maybe I don't need to eat the whole bag in one sitting (!).

      Safeway has a bag of 30 and there is usually 33 in the bag. They have pork & veggie ones. Safeway Select brand for 5.50 - 6.00 $. Ling ling are good but cost more. I think any brand probably tastes good. You don't have to boil them first though. Just put them on a plate for 3 minutes in microwave and flick a few drops of water on them. Then toss them in the hot oil. I have had these in my fridge for at least 3-4 years now. I LOVE them & they are quick to make & the best comfort food EVER!!! I just make a big plate and watch movie with a soda. They are great for getting revenge on people too. lol If youre upset with someone that lives with you you can just make enough for yourself and the whole house will smell like them and the person youre upset with will get all disturbed because they want some too but can't have any. lol It works. I'm just tellin you in case..... Ha ha

        Sigh...I like my method. I buy a lot of delicious vegetables and boil them into soup. I let everyone who wants some broth have some broth. When the broth is gone...I add more water, reboil the soup...repeat. It's one of the most efficient ways to distribute the nutrients from a large yield of vegetables to a large group of people. Water is great for that. Low waste, and, if there person at the pot knows what's up, some damn delicious soup.
