Delicious Gyoza Dumplings: Fried, Steamed, or Boiled!

My family says that these gyoza dumplings taste like ones served at a restaurant!
If you make this with "Homemade gyoza skins" Recipe ID: 1644988, it will be even more delicious!

Ingredients: Makes 40~50

Ground pork
Chinese cabbage (or cabbage)
Chopped green onion
2 tablespoons
Grated ginger
A little less than 1 teaspoon
Soy sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons
1 tablespoon
Sesame oil
1 tablespoon
to taste
Sansho pepper (optional)
a little
Vegetable oil
as needed


1. Quickly boil the Chinese cabbage. (You can steam it in the microwave instead.) Put the cooked cabbage in cold water, squeeze out the water and chop it up roughly. Put all of the other ingredients and seasonings into a bowl and mix well.
2. Be sure you've squeezed out all the water from the Chinese cabbage! Add it to the bowl from Step 1 and mix well to make the filling. Fill the gyoza skins with the filling. You can make about 40 to 50 dumplings.
3. Heat up some vegetable oil in a frying pan, arrange the gyoza in the pan and cook them. When the gyoza are halfway cooked, add in enough water to cover the bottom half of each gyoza. Cover with a lid and steam fry. Take the lid off and continue to cook until the moisture evaporates.
4. Or do it the way they showed on a TV cooking program called Danshi Gohan: Put some katakuriko on the bottom of the gyoza before putting them in the oil and then move them around in the oil. Once they start to dry out, add 1/2 cup of water.
5. Cover with a lid and steam fry them. Cook on low heat to cook down the liquid. Take the lid off and once the moisture has evaporated, it's done! Or so I have been told.
