Gyoza Recipe below:

Ingredients:

  • 2 teaspoons sake*           *Your local grocery store may not carry
  • 2 teaspoons Mirin*                   these, check online as needed.
  • 1 egg
  • ½ head of cabbage
  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 1 bunch green onions
  • 2 teaspoons ginger
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • Gyoza wrappers – try checking near the tofu in the produce section

Directions:

  1. Clean and chop cabbage and slice the green onions.
  2. Mix the ground pork, mirin, sake, spring onions, cabbage, ginger and soy sauce together. The mixture should be a little on the wet side, but it should hold together like a sloppy meatball.
  3. The original recipe we followed said to place a tablespoon of the meat mix in the wrapper, but we couldn’t get more than half a tablespoon to fit without ripping them. Practice makes perfect!
  4. Pleat! Fold wrappers in half over filling, reading a semi circle. Take one side of the wrapper and make crimps along the edges for a decorative pattern–like the pleats of a skirt–and press along the edges to seal the two sides together.
  5. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place as many gyoza in the skillet as can fit in a single layer. Fry the bottoms for 1 to 2 minutes.
  6. Place gyoza in a steamer and steam for 5 minutes–don’t forget to line the steamer with parchment paper so they don’t stick!
  7. Serve with rice and sauce!

    *Note if you want these to look great, it’s going to take a lot of practice. No matter how they look, they’re going to look better once you steam them!
