Other Ways to Make Ling Ling Potstickers

If you prefer non-crispy air fryer potstickers, add ½ cup or so of water to your basket before cooking a softer shell.

Even if you don't have an air fryer, you can still make these tasty Ling Ling potstickers.

Heat a pan with some vegetable oil over medium heat. Place the frozen potstickers flat side down in the pan for about 3-4 minutes on each side to brown. Then add water to your pan to cover ⅓ of the potsticker, turn the heat up to medium-high, and cover with a lid. Let them steam for about 7 minutes, then serve!

While this method might not be as quick as Ling Ling potstickers in air fryers, you can still have a delicious and fulfilling meal on the table in under 15 minutes.
