Beef Gyoza With Black Vinegar Dipping Sauce

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Aunty Dotty

I always ordered the chicken gyoza in Wagamama London - little parcels of meat with a crisp base - yummo. Don't stress too much if you can't find the black vinegar, just make up your own sauce with soy etc. We use 'gow gee wrappers' here, but RZ didn't recognise that. They are small circular wrappers.

These were excellent! Normally when I make dumplings, I just steam them, but I loved the crispy base of these. I was able to find the black rice vinegar, which I've never cooked with before. Really enjoyed it. Thanks for introducing it to me, Aunty Dotty! Made for PAC Fall 2007.
