Our homemade gyoza can't be compared to those in restaurants! My husband and I usually gobble-up twice this amount.

Vegetable or sesame oil
As needed


1. Combine all ● ingredients and mix thoroughly. Add ground pork and mix well with your hands.
2. Chop the Chinese cabbage (or cabbage) finely, and massage in a modest amount of salt. Squeeze firmly to let the extra water out. Mince the Chinese chives and leek.
3. Add the prepped vegetables into the pork. Add 1 tablespoon of katakuriko and mix thoroughly.
4. Wrap up with gyoza skin. Place the filling in the center, then fold it in half. Cover your left thumb from the right to make folds.
