Top Review by The roaming cook

Could be a good idea to make gyoza with friends: prepare the mix, then have them pack the gyoza. They usually have fun helping you. Now, gyoza is a japanese adaptation of the chinese Kao-Tien/Pekinese fried "raviolis". In Japan, they usually put some garlic or garlic leaves whereas in china they don't. Heat your pan hot before frying your gyoza so that the bottom will be crispy and the top soft. Beef seems better suited for deep-fried gyoza since it gets dry at cooking. Why not try a mixture of chicken & shrimp + ginger + spring onion?
