These "dumplings" can be pan-fried or steamed. Serve with the dipping sauce. Make it as spicy as you like by either using spicy sesame oil or Tabasco sauce, to taste.

Tink is right . . . they are wonderful. Followed your recipe with the exception of adding diced water chestnuts! It added a nice crunch! Instead of frying I steamed in my bamboo steamer for about 10 minutes! Great appetizer! Made for Unreviewed Asian Tag!

OMG! These are TDF! I make a lot of wonton/egg roll type foods & was surprised at how quickly this recipe came together; most of the prep time was filling & folding. I used a 1 tsp cookie scoop to portion out the filling & it made about 35 gyoza. Made as directed for filling & for the dipping sauce I used about a 1/4 teaspoon hot chili sesame oil (instead of Tabasco) & then topped the Tablespoon off with plain sesame oil. It was delicious! I used a full pound of pork but didn't change the other ingredient ratios. I'll definitely be making this again! I did notice that without a package size or number of wonton or gyoza wrappers needed to make the recipe listed in the ingredients, when printed out the line reads, "minced cilantro OR wonton wrapper" & I nearly missed the wrappers at the store because of it. My gyoza package is 12 oz & contains approximately 60 wrappers. Thanks for sharing, dawnie! Made for Unrated Asian recipes tag game in the Asian forum.
