Directions:
Crumble pork (or turkey) into a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain and set aside. In a medium bowl, mix together the pork, cabbage, green onion, ginger, water chestnuts, salt, sugar and sesame oil. Chill in the refrigerator 6-8 hours or overnight. Place 1 T. of the pork mixture into each of the wonton wrappers. Fold the wrappers, and seal the edges with a moistened fork. In a large deep skillet, heat 3 T. vegetable oil over medium high heat. Place the pot stickers into the oil, seam sides up. Stirring constantly, heat 30 sec. to a minute. Pour water into the skillet. Gently boil 7-8 minutes until oil and water begins to sizzle, then add remaining oil. When the bottoms begin to brown, remove pot stickers from heat.

In a small serving bowl, mix together the chili oil, vinegar and soy sauce, adjusting proportions to taste. Serve with dipping sauce.
