Chorizo Potstickers

During the pandemic, my fiancé and I were looking for new recipes to try. To experiment, we made chorizo potstickers to bring together the flavors of our Mexican and Chinese backgrounds, and they were a huge hit with our friends!

Heat a large pan over medium-high heat. Cook chorizo until about 75% done.
Mix the chorizo with all the other ingredients except the egg and the wrappers to make the filling, and let cool.
Beat egg in a separate bowl.
Place about 1 tbsp of filling in a wrapper. Moisten the outer edge of the wrapper with beaten egg. Fold the wrapper in half to close and pinch the seams closed.
Place on a baking sheet. Repeat with remaining wrappers and filling, taking care to keep them from touching each other.
Heat a clean large pan over medium heat. Drizzle with 1 tbsp of vegetable oil.
Place as many potstickers into the pan as can fit with about 1 inch of space between them.
Pour 4 tbsp of water in the pan. Cover and cook for 5 minutes. The water should be evaporated and the bottom of the dumplings golden brown.
If you’re not ready to cook them, they can be frozen until you’re ready to fry with the same cooking instructions above.
Serve with your favorite sauce—Chinese black vinegar, soy sauce, or chili sauce!</span-p>

Cook It Up:
An Upwork

A Foreword from the
Kitchen of Hayden Brown,
Upwork CEO

I deeply treasure that time around the table with my kids and loved ones. In our household, our kitchen table is a gathering place to share a meal, enjoy each other’s company, reflect on the day and laugh together.

With ‘Cook It Up,’ our Upwork Family Belonging Community has assembled a wonderful collection of recipes that celebrate the rich diversity of cultures we represent at Upwork. I truly enjoyed the personal memories that connect these dishes to the team members who shared them. This is a fun, approachable and sometimes touching look behind the “work curtain” that’s helped me — and I hope will help you — get to know our team even better.

I invite you to take a moment to browse the stories and recipes when you are looking for inspiration, a new way to connect with your colleagues, or just want to try something new. Most of all, I invite you to participate in the celebration of food, family, and life found here in Cook It Up.
