    Tried those Trader Joe's potstickers once and was a major fail. Nuked them in a rush which was obviously not the preferred method. Just sauté them in some oil/ butter? Slaw looks awesome.

    yea put them in a real hot pan to get the crisp bottom then hit them with steam at the end. I eat the veg ones, I dont eat meat. they are ok but get old fast for me if I have them too often

    I've found a better way to do them, defrost them, then put them in a pan with about an inch of water and a couple tablespoons of oil. Cover and bring to a heavy simmer, once the water evaporates, then oil browns the potstickers

    sounds ok but I dont see it as better, especially because you add a defrost step.

    I did get a couple pics of the onions caramelizing, I cooked down on super low for ~4 hours. nothing added to them but a pinch of salt (some people add sugar to caramelized onions :rolleye:)

    yours are burned on the bottom, thus over cooked, all you have to do in throw them in the fridge the night before you cook them, it's really not a step

    Oooo, that soup sounds good. And I'm with you, caramelized onions take forever, but it's worth it. And people that add sugar should be locked up. :grr: I do my onions in a much wider pan than yours, and don't layer them much, so they take about an hour or hour and a half, on very low with butter and salt. :buffet:
