Gyoza is one of my favorite things to eat when I am back home in the USA. I have always wanted to give it a try myself, from scratch. Before attempting I watched at least 10 videos on YouTube, and picked out the common steps. I highly encourage others to give it a try if you love gyoza as much as me! The possibilities are endless when it comes to the filling. My first time I made a traditional vegan filling, and the second time I used whatever I had.
Here is the video that I feel is the simplest explanation on how to make these beautiful little wrappers :) It is easier to see it than to read about it.
Here is another beautiful video that explains the process of making the filling.
As you can see in the videos above, there are 2 main ways to cook the gyoza. Boiling, and pan frying/steaming. I prefer pan frying them!
