Healthy Asian Inspired Appetizer

Craving Asian food? Try these low carb cabbage wrapped pot stickers! I used ground beef, but you can also use pork or turkey or any ground meat! This is a healthy appetizers – the potsticker – AKA gyoza, AKA dumpling.  Whatever you prefer to call them, they’re freaking delicious.  Cabbage makes the perfect low-carb sub to traditional wonton wrappers in our classic pot stickers.

Cabbage Wrapped Beef Pot Stickers


  • 1 Head of Cabbage but weigh out 225 grams cooked

  • 8 oz 95% Ground Beef raw- should yield 6 oz cooked

  • 2 tbsp chopped green onion

  • 1/2 tsp Sesame oil

  • 2 tsp low sodium Soy sauce

  • 1/8 tsp Ground Ginger

  • 1/8 tsp Garlic Powder

  • Cooking spray


  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil.

  • Wash and cut cabbage in half.

  • Cut the core from each half of the cabbage by slicing it out in a triangular wedge.

  • Separate at least at least 8 of the larger outer cabbage leaves from both halves, and then add to boiling water. (Save remaining cabbage for another meal).

  • Boil for 2 minutes, until cabbage is crisp-tender.

  • Use a slotted spoon to transfer cooked cabbage to a plate of paper towels to drain.

  • Prepare the pot sticker filling by combining beef, chopped green onions, sesame oil, soy sauce, ground ginger and garlic powder in a mixing bowl. Mix well.

  • Place a large nonstick pan over medium heat and spray with non-stick cooking spray.

  • Form the filling into thick oval patties about the shape and size of your thumb.

  • Place the filling patties into the pan and cook about 4 minutes on each side, until cutting into one shows no pink throughout.

  • Wrap cooked patties in cabbage leaves and secure with toothpicks.
