Recipe for Japanese Gyoza


  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 lb. ground pork – not sausage
  • 1 bunch green onions (scallions), chopped
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 packages Gyoza Wrappers
  • 2 – 3 tablespoons vegetable oil for frying
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil (optional)
  • 1 – 2 tablespoons for steaming the gyoza
  • Dipping Sauce

  • Soy Sauce
  • Hot Chili Oil (Available in the Asian Food section of most Supermarkets)
  • Chop green onions and combine with ground beef and pork. Mix gently, but not too much or the meat will become tough.

    Using a regular teaspoon, place a small portion of meat – large marble size, in the center of the wrapper. Moisten 1/2 of the edge of the gyoza wrapper, fold in half, and seal. Crimp the edges for a decorative finish.

    Heat the oil in a frying pan with a lid using medium heat. Add the gyoza and cook until golden brown on the bottom, about 3 to 5 minutes. Add the water, and place the lid on the pan and let the gyoza steam for another 3 to 5 minutes.

    Serve with a mixture of soy sauce and chili oil for dipping. Don’t forget the hot rice.
