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?
These dumplings could use more green onion and ginger. The flavors needed a bit more kick.
This is an excellent recipe for gyoza. I make gyoza frequently, it is one of my favorite foods. I haven't made this one, but having years of experience, I think it's a winner. The only thing I have never used is the black mushroom. All of the rest ingreds are the ones I use. For the sauce, I add sliced ginger, sliced garlic, a few drops chili oil.
