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

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.
