Pot stickers gyoza dumplings delish! 

We dig pot stickers.. And I know my good pal Ramsay delights in them.. Although these are just for us!  Soz Rams! 

Now I am sure that if you do these often enough you can get a speed on.. I don’t.. So this takes time..

Starting with the filling though., 

Pork of course! Although any animal will do and with the game season now in full swing I am expecting to make these from some ‘exotica’ soon💥 although I must freely admit that shrooms or just pure veggies would rock out here too! 

 

Rind removed .. And a small piece of the fat.. 

And minced ..

Hand cranked minced.. 

  
(Because I broke my other one .. Again!.. ).. 

And then the additions.. 

Green onions .. For bite and flavour

 

A few water chestnuts for crunch .. 

 
And then parsley and coriander, fish sauce, soy sauce, green finger chilli, garlic and ginger grated..

 

That’s all mixed up and popped in the fridge to get to know each other a lot better.. 

In the meantime make the dough.. I decided after normally buying the wrappers that they must be easy enough to do.. 

So I thank the google gods once again, although not finding a definitive recipe I took ‘inspiration’ from many.. 

It went like this though.. 

Two cups of plain/ap flour. And about two thirds of a cup of boiling water.. It has to be boiling.. You could do this by hand perhaps using chopsticks to mix it.. Yet feck it. Do it in the processor.. 

 Let that dough rest .  I am no scientist yet there is reasoning behind this.. 

Anyhoo.. 

Then cut into bits.. Lots of flour to prevent sticking.. 

And roll out thin and smallish. 

 

The filling placed in the middle and an attempt to fold them over.. Sticking them with water only. 

 Do they win first place or even third in a pretty comp? 

Nope.. 

Yet into the pan first with a spritz of mrsmiddletons straight up oil . 

Then hot water added.. And a lid popped on.. 

 

The water disappears.. And you have pot stickers! Crispy on the bottom.. Chewy on top.. Darn tasty filling! 

To go with a lip smacking slaw of mooli, pink onion, heritage carrot, cabbage and an apple.. All drilled through the processor with a pinch of cumin seed a splash of cyder vinegar and a sprinkle of seasoned rice vinegar.. 

 
Then ‘artistically’ plate up.. 

Drops of Japanese soy , miso dressing and yakiniku sauce..

 

It ain’t pretty darn well ! 

Must get quicker at em though..

  4. These are favorites to have as an appetizer or a meal. Like your filling… Credit to you for making your own wrappers – I should as I even took a class. What would anyone do without the “google gods”. I love my books, magazines, cooking shows, classes and so on but in a pinch “google” comes to the rescue. Happy Fiesta Friday 🙂
