Chunky All-purpose Sweet Onion and Miso Sauce for Gyoza Dumplings

Chunky All-purpose Sweet Onion and Miso Sauce for Gyoza Dumplings

I made a miso based sauce that highlights the sweetness of sweet new harvest onions! This is a chunky macrobiotic sauce!

Ingredients: 2 servings

Sweet new harvest onions
2 medium
Garlic
1 clove
Water
100 ml
Mirin
2 tablespoons
Sake
2 tablespoons
Miso
2 tablespoons plus
Toasted white sesame seeds
1 tablespoon

Steps

1. Thinly slice the sweet onions! Don't be too concerned about making the slices really thin!
2. Chop the garlic roughly!
3. Pan fry the onion slices in a frying pan. No need to add oil!
4. Brown the onions! Leave them be in the pan and don't move them around too much! That brings out their sweetness!
5. When the onions start to release a nutty aroma, flip them over!
6. Repeat this step several times!
7. The onions are browned and wilted! Add the garlic here!
8. Add the water, mirin, sake and miso! Don't mix at this point! Cover with a lid and let it steam-cook! The heat should be about medium!
9. Let it cook for 5 minutes with the lid on, then mix well to stir fry. This lets the moisture evaporate! Don't let it burn!
10. Taste, add some toasted sesame white sesame seeds and it's done! Adding a little pepper is good too! The sauce is sweet even without sugar.
11. I added some chopped green onions for color!
12. I used them for Recipe ID: 1431015, a recipe for making store-bought ready-to-cook gyoza dumplings into easy 'winged' dumplings.
13. Boom!! I added the sauce that came with the gyoza dumplings as well! It was so good!
