Recipe #6: Home made Gyozas
Earlier this week, I made gyozas for the first time, and it was very yummy! Lots of you asked me to post the recipe so, here it is!
I do want to add that I found the recipe on Brussels Kitchen (for a change, I know!)
You need (for 25 gyozas – which is the amount of gyozas dough in one pack):
- one pack of gyozas dough
- 200gr of meat (I used pork/beef) they say 300gr on BK, bust I took 200gr, and almost had too much
- soy sauce (2 tablespoon)
- 2 garlic cloves (3 if you go for 300gr)
- 2 table spoon of soy sauce
- 2 table spoon of rice vinegar
- 1 tea spoon of sesame oil
- 1 tea spoon of sugar (which I did not have)
- chili flakes
You will be able to find the gyozas dough – in Brussels – at the chinese supermarket downtown. The gyozas dough are in the fridge. Here what the pack looks like
Mix all the ingredients for the gyozas stuffing: the meat, garlic, cilantro, ginger and soy sauce (important: if you picked already seasoned meat, pay attention to how much soy sauce you add, because it could make it too salty)
With a spoon, make some little balls and place them on the gyozas dough
Fold the sheets in 2, humidify the borders (inside) to help them stick together, then press the edges with your fingers and leave the prints. Keep on going for all of them.
Cooking the gyozas might seem a bit difficult, but actually it went pretty well.
First you need to « color » the gyozas, by putting them in a pan with a bit of sesame oil, but only on one side. After a few minutes (2-3), add water in your pan, it should cover half of the gyozas.
Wait for the gyozas to absorb all the water. Once they did, add some more sesame oil, and fry them again, both sides.
And you’re done! Yummyyyy
Sorry for the bad quality of pictures, but I thought it would be hard to make, and since it was my first, I did think it was going to be a mess, and pictures were then not included.
Let me know if you try to make it, easy and delicious!
Have a super great weekend guys! xx
