TGI Friday's Pot Stickers

    2 1/2 cups flour
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 cup hot water
    1 tablespoon shortening or oil

    1 lb. ground pork
    2 tablespoons soy sauce
    1 tablespoon sesame oil
    1 teaspoon grated ginger
    Pinch of sugar
    Salt and pepper to taste
    3 green onions, chopped
    1 egg
    1 tablespoon cornstarch
    1 can water chestnuts, finely chopped
    1 clove garlic, minced

  Dipping Sauce:
    1/2 cup soy sauce
    1/4 cup white vinegar
    1 teaspoon chili oil
    1 green onion, chopped

  Combine the flour, salt, hot water and shortening in a bowl and
 incorporate into a smooth dough. Allow the dough to rest for 20
 minutes, covered.

  Combine the filling ingredients. Combine the dipping sauce
 ingredients. Roll the dough out about 1/8 thick. Use a biscuit cutter
 or a glass to cut out 3 inch circles. Brush a little water over the
 circles and place about 2 teaspoons of filling in center. Fold the
 circles in half and press to seal, making sure to squeeze out any
 air. Stand the dumplings up on the folded side and press slightly so
 that they stand up nicely. To cook, bring a pot of salted water to
 boil, and boil the dumplings until cooked through, about 5 minutes.
 Drain well. The dumplings may be frozen at this point for future use;
 this recipe makes about 8 dozen. Heat a skillet with about 2
 tablespoons oil and fry the dumplings on one side only, until nicely
 browned. Drain on paper towels. Serve with the dipping sauce.
