200g Minced Pork

200g Spring Onions

5g Root Ginger

2 Tablespoons Sesame Oil

1/2 Tablespoon Sake

1/2 Teaspoon Salt

1 1/2 Tablespoons Soy Sauce

How To Make Japanese Pork Stir Fry

  • Slice the sping onions thinly
  • Grate the ginger
  • Mix the pork mince with a fork, pressing down with the prongs to mix the pork into a smooth paste
  • Add spring onions and ginger to the pork
  • Add the sake, soy sauce and salt
  • Mix together evenly
  • Leave to marinade while heating the wok (the longer you leave the pork mixture the stronger the flavors will be - 30 minutes is plenty if you want it to marinade longer, if not, just leave it for as long as the wok takes to heat up)
  • Add the sesame oil to the hot wok
  • Just as the oil begins to smoke add the pork mixture
  • Stir Fry continuosly
  • Cook for 6 - 8 minutes or until all the pork is no longer pink
  • Serve

Ingredients To Make Gyoza Dumpling Filling

Making gyoza dumplings from scratch is something that I have done many times. They are delicious, but incredibly time consuming and fiddly to make. If you are making your own dough it's a bit of an effort, so for practical purposes I would buy ready made.

If you take the effort of making the gyoza dough out of the equation, aside from the fiddly assembly of putting the right amount of pork mixture into the little rounds and sealing them, this dish is easy! Well, at least making the filling and the gyoza dipping sauce is!

Exactly the same as above!

I adapted my gyoza recipe because I wanted the delicious flavors, but not as a dumpling. The filling recipe works incredibly well in a stir fry, you still get those amazing flavors but without having to serve them as gyoza dumpling.

I'm a celiac, I've been having to adapt recipes to make them gluten free since I found out. Some things have gone off the menu completely for me, but some I just manage to adapt and enjoy the flavors in a different way. This pork stir fry is 100% gluten free!
