This is a great recipe for Gyoza. It is a little time consuming to make, but oh so worth the effort. A gyoza press makes the job easier. It makes 100 gyoza. I make them all and freeze the others (uncooked)for another time. The dipping sauce is so tasty that you will tempted to get up in the middle of the night and stick your finger in for a little taste. MMmmmm!

Original review Sep 7, 2003I didn't make the Gyoza becuase there was no way I could eat that many and there's not enough room in my freezer for that many. I may try to cut the recipe down to make a dozen or so and see how they come out. :) I did make the sauce and used it as a dressing on a crab and lettuce salad. I didn't use the chili oil because I can't eat hot things like that and I didn't have any szechwan pepper. (I'll have to look for it in the store.) Even without those two ingredients, the sauce was very good!! I will definitely be making it again. Thanks for the tasty recipe. Editing to say I am removing the stars since I did not make the recipe as written. The dipping sauce deserves 5 stars but since I did not make the Gyozas, I cannot fairly give the whole recipe 5 stars but it is not fair to give it 3 since the gyozas might be really good. Thanks
