4.4 stars from 5 ratings of Crispy, Steamed or Fried Gyoza

Another appetizer to serve with gyoza

Why not turn the evening into a festive occasion? Serve spring rolls (recipe given below) and gyoza along with some fried rice (recipe given below).


http://pstraubie48.hubpages.com/hub/Crispy-Homemade-Spring-Rolls




Another food I learned to prepare while I lived in Japan was gyoza. To me, they are like a tiny spring roll. I use same ingredients for the basic gyoza. However, you can also make cheese gyoza. They are utterly sinful.

You can make these actually four ways: fried, steamed, filled with cheese; filled with veggies only.

These are commonly known as dumplings in the States and are often made into a little sack and twisted. That is a personal preference---crimping the edges just seem to give them a more appealing look to my eye.

Many names, many great tastes

Gyoza, dumpling, pot sticker---these little dough filled bites of food are a hit every time you serve them.

You can make the filling using shrimp, or the other meats suggested. You can also make them with no meat.

It is a versatile appetizer you may have never thought of making. Give these a try.

Serve with some fried rice and call it dinner. My own favorite fried rice recipe's line is above.

Happy cooking .

Wrapping

Wrapping gyoza comes with practice. The first few I made years ago were kind of scary looking. But after you have made them once, it becomes second nature and not challenging at all.

You can buy a mold to use to make them (one is pictured from Amazon below). I have also seen them in kitchen supply stores in malls. I do not use those but you can. They do work nicely.

Ingredients

  • 1/4-1/2 bag coleslaw
  • 1 medium onion, fine chop
  • 6 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 4 teaspoons garlic salt
  • 1/2 pound lean ground beef, turkey, or pork, can be a combination of the three
  • 1 package wonton wrappers
  • 1/4 cup water
  • ABOUT THE GARLIC SALT That seems like a lot of salt but these are cooked twice. When you brown the meat and veggies, Then when you fry them so much of the salt is lost.

Instructions

  1. Select a skillet for cooking. Cast Iron is great. Cook onion till translucent. Add beef. Cook till brown. Drain excess oil
  2. Add coleslaw. Toss. Let cook about 7-8 minutes, till al dente. Set aside to cool.
  3. Wrap as shown in photographs using a small amount of water to moisten edges before crimping. You will be crimping the edges together to form your gyoza. Allow to brown; remove to paper toweling to drain.
  4. FOR STEAMED GYOZA: Use steps 1-3. Then place about 1/8 cup water in a skillet, let heat till water is bubbly, add gyoza. Cover, let steam about 2 minutes, turn them over. Allow 2 more minutes of steaming time. Remove. If using a non-stick pan, spray pan with nonstick cooking spray before adding water.
  5. FOR CHEESE GYOZA: Prepare this way---Place two 1/2 inch cubes of cheese on wrapper. Fold as shown.
  6. Cook in medium high heat, quickly. Cook these last if you are making on the same day you make beef filled ones. Cheese will leak out of a few. Be certain the oil is heated well before adding. Let brown Remove to paper toweling to drain.

The fried ones look like some fabulous beastie they might feed you in the kingdom of the mountain elves.

The steamed ones look exactly like something my wife would feed me. She does not like fried food.

I promise, Sheila. they are yummmmmmy. And making them at home you control the meat, veggies, oils and all of it. So you know exactly what they contain.

Perhaps you can have a night of Oriental American foods :D

I never heard of Gyozas before. We southerners make fried fruit pies done in a similar way. We put the fruit inside and deep fry them after they are enclosed in a dough.

These really good yummy and I've bookmarked to get back to this recipe. Loved the way you present this Hub with the great photos.

Hi, Natasha

Be sure to moisten the edges well and crimp tightly. When I first began making these I did not have great luck. But after you practice a bit you will get into the swing of making them.

Give them a try.

The cheese ones are my daughter's favorite, livingsta...They are a little tricky as you must have the oil heated and ready so they cook quickly. Some cheese escapes during cooking but not so much if you have the heat just right.

Yum! I love dumplings of any sort, but your article reminded me of my favorite restaurant called Wagamama. There is only one here in the US, but they are all over in other parts of the world. They serve Gyoza, and they are delicious. Maybe I will try making these at home, since the restaurant is a far drive or flight from my current home :) Voted up!
