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
- Ground pork (kurobuta type preferred!)
- Green onions
- Napa cabbage or regular cabbage is just as fine
- Sesame oil
- Crushed garlic (raw)
- Salt and pepper
- Shredded ginger if you like
- Chopped water chestnuts if you like
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.

Looks delicious! Anything fried and dipped in soy sauce has got to taste heavenly. I think my little ones would enjoy eating these too! Thanks for the recipe. 🙂
LOTS of soy sauce… LOL 😉
Do you have a vegetarian version or should I just leave out the pork?
Let me look into that!

i can eat with chopsticks but i can’t eat anything with garlic or onion.
Well…. don’t know what to say!
ha i know i’m weird
Free at your house? I’ll be over later! lol
Just give me a day’s notice!
Oooh, these sound delish!
Do you have J-food stuff over there?
Not easily accessible but we have a great importer of speciality food which we visit regularly!
This is excellent! Thank you! I love these in restaurants and never considered making them myself! Yum!
They are actually pretty easy to make…!
OH they look divine Koji….if only I ever return to cooking!
Now wait a minute here… You want to eat others’ cooking but don’t cook yourself? Hmmm. Well, I guess we can take that in two ways. 😉
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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂
You are very astute, My Queen! (Am I no longer your favorite for today now?!)
Of course! Once achieved you can not lose it! Even if YOU ARE TRYING! 🙂
You know . . . I never learned to use chopsticks. Is that shameful?!
Whaaaaat???? You must be pulling my leg! No…legs!!!
Love gyoza! I try to have it every time we eat at my fave Japanese fastfood restaurant…I will use my porcelain chopsticks with your gyoza 😉
Enjoy! Use a lot a ra-yu. Haha
Oh, we love gyoza. I’ve never tried to make it. I’ll have to try your recipe. And we love eating with chopsticks. Everything tastes better!
You’ve mastered everything else, Jeannie! Just be sure to use a cast iron skillet if you do. 🙂
