Gyoza Anyone?


Gyoza anyone?  I guess we call them “dumplings” here in the US of A…

Simple to make.

Tastes great (or at least that’s what my kids say).

And it’s FREEEEE at Chez Mustang.Koji’s!  LOL

Ingredients:

  1. Ground pork (kurobuta type preferred!)
  2. Green onions
  3. Napa cabbage or regular cabbage is just as fine
  4. Sesame oil
  5. Crushed garlic (raw)
  6. Sugar
  7. Salt and pepper
  8. Shredded ginger if you like
  9. Chopped water chestnuts if you like
Do not press meat mixture.
Do not press meat mixture.

Combine ingredients but do not press.  Spoon about a tablespoon of mixture into gyoza skin.  Fold.  Add a touch of oil to coat bottom of cast iron skillet (non-stick does not work!), medium high heat.  Cover, add about 2-3 tablespoons of water to steam.  Remove when botton is browned.

Serve with a dipping sauce made of soy sauce, “ra-yu” or chili oil, and Japanese vinegar if you like.

So simple, a mechanic can do it.

Oh…  Chopsticks are expected.

      1. I USED to cook, a lot. Dinner on the table EVERY day with the kids. And I was a good (often did great meals but not a great cook) cook.

        Now….no kids to do dinner with at home.

        Husband is a very plain eater….cooking not required. So I kind of miss it.

        And I’m SURE the other way you are implying is NOT that I am a bad cook and my cooking is not missed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)
