Tonight was a non-grilling night. Gyoza is a form of Japanese dumpling similar in concept to the more familiar pot sticker of Chinese dim sum fame. The differences are minor actually, although the skins of gyoza are almost always thinner than a pot sticker skin. Here is the recipe.
1/2 lb ground pork
1/2 lb finely minced prawns
1 cup shredded napa cabbage
1/4 cup chopped green onion, white and some green
1/4 cup finely chopped water chestnut
1/8 cup chopped shiitake mushroom
1/8 cup cilantro
1/2 cup shoyu
3 tablespoons vinegar
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon white pepper
1/4 teaspoon sugar
Mix all ingredients to create a medium textured filling, well incorporated but do not mash the mixture. Here they are ready for folding.
