09 Feb Gyoza
This is one of our family’s very favorite things to eat. Gyoza are Japanese potstickers filled with savory filling that you could pop for days! My husband lived in Japan for 2 years and ate these all the time, then learned how to make them. I double checked with a friend from Japan who is am amazing cook and sure enough Matt really did have an authentic recipe! This recipe makes about 40 gyoza, and my favorite thing to do is make a bunch, freeze them in a single later on cookie sheets as to not stick together, and then transfer to a ziplock bag to freeze for whenever you want a delicious snack! They freeze super well and you don’t have to thaw them out before cooking them. Gyoza are surprisingly easy to make and have super simple ingredients. Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do!
