Pagoda Pork Potstickers Review

9:00 AM

Today I am reviewing the Pagoda Pork Potstickers!

First of all, I purchased these at my local Kroger store and wanted to share that all Pagoda snack products are currently on sale for 2 for $6, this was as of Sunday so double check your weekly ads to see if they are still on sale!

I began by following the directions on the box for preparing them on the stove. While the idea these can be cooked in the microwave is nice for a quick fix, I personally feel the texture will be much better if done on the stove top. Unfortunately, I ended up having mine burn a bit so watch the heat on these. I used the recommended setting of medium-high but with any stove, temperatures vary so next time I will prepare these on medium.

To make these on the stove-top, you simply begin by adding water and oil to a pan.

Place the potstickers flat side down, cover with lid and cook for about 10 minutes or until bottom is browned.

Once done, serve alongside the soy sauce given in the box.

I have never had frozen potstickers before so I don't have anything but fresh potstickers to compare these to. Overall, I was quite pleased with the freshness that the potstickers had and how quickly they cooked. These are dumplings with pork, cabbage, and green onions. They also contain no MSG except what is found naturally in yeast extract and soy sauce. The soy sauce is really tasty and really does add to the potstickers, they do have a decent amount of flavor on their own but the soy sauce definitely elevates them and makes them far more tasty.

I found that each potsticker had plenty of filling inside and while I did burn them a bit, I enjoyed how crisp the bottom gets when cooked. My biggest and really only complaint about these are the tops of the potsticker. While the bottom does crisp up, I found the tops were almost under-cooked. They were a bit chewy and really started falling apart once I took a bite or cut one open. I personally would cook the top more so the entire potsticker has that crisp taste and texture. Now, this is my preference so you may like how they come out by following the directions. I'd recommend doing it the suggested way first and then adjusting to your own preference the next time.

The great thing about these are the price, how quickly they cook, and the amount you get. I find these to be a great idea for any appetizer for a party or for a quick snack. You could easily incorporate these into a dinner as well by making fried rice or a salad. I would definitely recommend giving these a try as they are simple to make and really tasty! I will be reviewing the Chicken Potstickers next so be on the lookout for that soon.
