  • 100g Wagyu Tallow (minced)

  • 200g Pork Mince

  • 3 Large Leaves of Cabbages or Chinese Leaf (roughly chopped)

  • 4 Chinese Chives or Spring Onions(roughly chopped)

  • 20 Gyoza Skins

  • 1 tbsp Soy Sauce

  • 1 tbsp Sake or White Wine

  • 1 tsp Sesame Oil

  • 1 tsp Sugar

  • 1 tsp Sea Salt

  • 1 tsp Black Pepper

  • 1 tbsp Ginger (minced)

  • 1 tbsp Garlic (minced)

  • 1 tbsp Oil

  • 100ml Water

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the Wagyu tallow, pork, cabbages, chives, soy sauce, sake, sesame oil, sugar, salt, ginger, and garlic. Mix well until it turns into a gloopy paste. Cover the bowl with cling film and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

  2. Take a gyoza skin and place it on the palm of your non-dominant hand. Spoon one teaspoon of the filling mixture onto the center of the skin. Wet the edges of the skin with water using your fingertip. Fold the wrapper in half over the filling. Pinch it in the center with your fingers and create a pleat. Press each pleat against the opposite flat side of the skin. Each gyoza should have around 6 pleats. Transfer it to a plate and cover it with cling film.

  3. Repeat step 2 with the remaining ingredients.

  4. Heat oil in a large frying pan over high heat. Transfer the gyoza to the pan, leaving a tiny space between each one. Cook for 2 minutes until the bottoms are golden-brown.

  5. Add water to the pan and cover with a lid or a sheet of foil. Cook over medium heat until the water has evaporated. If you like extra crispy gyoza, add 1 tablespoon of plain flour to the water and mix well.

  6. For the dipping sauce, mix 2 tablespoons of soy sauce, 1 tablespoon of vinegar, 1 teaspoon of sesame oil, and 1 teaspoon of chili oil in a bowl.

Enjoy your delicious homemade gyoza with the dipping sauce!
