Tips for Cooking Gyoza

Gyoza - Iconic Japanese Dumplings Tired of messing up these little morsels of goodness?

Here are a few quick and easy tips for this popular Japanese food.

  1. Thawed, not frozen.
  2. Use a non-stick pan heated on medium-high heat.
  3. Add oil when pan is hot.
  4. Don't crowd the pan - make sure each dumpling has its own space and place it flat side down.
  5. Let them fry up until the bottom is almost golden brown. NO FLIPPING!
  6. Add a splash of water and cover the pan with a lid for about 2 -3 minutes. Adding a splash of water and covering the pan will steam the gyoza, finishing the cooking process while keeping the bottoms crispy.
