Gyozas are Japanese pan-fried dumplings filled with vegetables and pork. Thus, luncheon meat is a great (if not better!) substitute for pork if you don’t have any on hand! These classy dumplings are crispy and savoury. You can serve them as a side dish or make as many as you want and have them for dinner!
1. Mince the luncheon meat. 2. Add all the minced ingredients, ground luncheon meat, and seasonings into a bowl. Mix well with hands or spatula.
Step 2: Fold the gyoza
1. Place a dumpling skin on hand and place a tsp of filling in the middle of hand. #Tip: to make folding easier, lightly dust hands with flour. 2. Fold skin over into a fan shape and pinch the middle close. Pleat one side of the wrapper only, going from middle to right, then middle to left. (Pleats go inwards.)
Step 3: Cook and serve
1. Heat oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Place gyozas in pan. 2. Cook for 3 minutes or until the bottom is golden brown. Add water to pan and cover with lid to steam for 3 minutes or until water evaporates. 3. Pour the sesame oil around the frying pan for fragrance. 4. Arrange gyoza on a serving plate, mix sauce ingredients together and serve.
