Gyoza Dumplings 2 Ways

Being a Japanese teacher by day, Gyozas are one of my favourite foods. I picked up some pork mince which was on sale so decided to make these. This is my spin on the traditional recipes. 

I had to use won ton wrappers as I couldn’t get Gyozas wrappers at the time. 


1kg pork mince

1/8 of a sugar loaf cabbage finely shredded 

6 large mushrooms diced

2 stems of spring onions diced finely 

4 – 6 cloves of garlic minced

2cm piece of ginger grated

1 heaped tablespoon veggie dip mix

3 tablespoons soy sauce

Salt and white pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl until well combined. 

Take a wrapper and place approximately 1 teaspoon of mixture in the centre. Wet the edge with water and fold into your desired shape.

Steam or boil until filling is cooked. I cooked mine in the rice cooker lined with baking paper. Took about 20 mins

Now as I had 1kg of mince, I decided to freeze some for next time and also decided to make some meatballs. I coated these in sesame seeds and steamed them the same way. You could however bake these too. 

This recipe can be pre prepared and then frozen for a simple dinner.

Happy cooking Ren
