Pork and cabbage gyoza

These dumplings are a modified recipe we read out of a magazine somewhere. They are simply delicious and make a great side of main course with rice. I like to cook fried rice with these, but any rice would do or you could add them to some chicken terriyaki. We forgot to add ginger to this batch, but if you do it is great! This recipe makes about 48.

1 lb pork
Half a cabbage
2 tablespoons of grated ginger (we didn’t add to this)
3 green onions
Cumin, salt, pepper to taste
Wonton wrappers (48) We normally make our own, but we didn’t feel like rolling them all out.

Step 1.  Chop up cabbage and salt. Let sit out for 20 minutes so the water sweats out of the cabbage.

Step 2. Squeeze cabbage to get water out and put in a large mixing bowl.

Step 3. Cook up pork chops and cut green onions up. When cooking the pork I added pepper and cumin.

Step 4. Cut pork into small cubes to stuff into the wrappers.

Step 5. Mix all ingredients together except for wrappers. I added more cumin at this point too.

Step 6. Get wrappers and read instructions on how to seal them. Put about two spoonfuls of filling in each wrapper. Make sure they are sealed well.

Step 7. Turn on the music and begin the wrapping fun. It took about 45 minutes for us to get all 48 done. We did random shapes and sizes, do whatever works for you.

Step 8. When cooking pan fry on one side and then steam for 5 minutes. Serve on top of fried rice and have dipping sauce nearby for these delicious things.
