Today I bring you a very simple version of Gyoza, a very famous dumpling of Asian cuisine, Gyoza are the Japanese version of the Chinese patty, although there are different versions, today I want to teach you to prepare them at home in a very simple way, with very few ingredients so that everyone can prepare it at home. The filling of the Gyoza can vary quite a bit, I have prepared them with chopped pork, although you can also use chicken, veal and even make the vegetarian version using tofu, vegetables and mushrooms.

  • Cook the cabbage leaves in the microwave for one minute; then cut the cabbage and onion into very small pieces.
  • In a large bowl, add the finely chopped vegetables, garlic and ginger grated and minced pork and mix well with your hands.
  • Add a teaspoon of sake, sesame oil and soy sauce to the mixture. Season and mix well.
  • Put a wafer dough on top of our hand, with the other hand, wet the edge of the wafer. (this helps to close it).
  • Put a teaspoon of mixture in the center of the wafer (do not pass, or will not close properly). If you put excess filler, remove it.
  • Fold in half and join the ends to close the gyoza.
  • Once we have all the gyoza’s made, put a teaspoon of vegetable oil in a frying pan over high heat. When the oil is hot, put the gyoza to fry the flat part. Fry for about 3 or 4 minutes, until the bottom of the gyoza is well browned.
  • Add 1/4 cup of water to skillet, cover immediately and cook until water has evaporated.
  • Mix all the ingredients of the sauce in a cup and serve with the gyozas.
