Gyoza are typically pan-fried to a crispy golden brown on one side and steamed to a tender finish on the other. Whether served as an appetizer, snack, or main course, gyoza are sure to impress. In this recipe, we'll guide you through the steps to make delicious and authentic gyoza at home, for a truly authentic and satisfying dish.



  • 1/2 onion

  • 10g fresh ginger

  • 200g pork loin

  • 280g chinese cabbage

  • 100g leeks

  • 100g water

  • 1 tsp sugar

  • 2 tbsp soja sauce

  • 1 tbsp sesame oil

  • salt


  • 20 gyoza wrappers

  • 2 tbsp oil


  • 3 tbsp soja sauce

  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar



Step 1:

Chop the onion, ginger, and meat and reserve.

Chop the cabbage and the leek. Put in a pot with the water, and cook for 6 minutes or until tender.

Step 2:

Drain your vegetables and press them down to remove the excess water.

Step 3:

Using a mixer, mix your cooked vegetables, chopped meat/ onion/ginger, sugar, salt, soja sauce, and sesame oil, on medium speed for 5 seconds.

Step 6:

Leave your filling to rest for 30 minutes in the fridge.


Step 7:

Put your gyoza wrappers on a sheet of baking paper.

Humidify the edges of 1/2 of the disc.

Add 1 tsp of the filling in the center of the disc.

Close the wrapper on top of the filling by bringing 2 sides of the disc together, while welding the edges by pinching them to create small folds on one side.


Step 8:

Line your bamboo steamer with baking paper and place your gyoza inside. Place your steamer in a pot over steaming water and cook for 3 min, or until the wrappers become translucent.

Step 9:

Using Avere's soaking method, wet another sheet of baking paper and line a pan with it.

Add 2 tbsp of oil and put your pan on high heat.

Put the gyoza on the baking paper and fry for 5 min to give your gyoza a golden, crispy texture.

Step 10:

Serve while it is still hot.


Step 11:

Mix together the soja sauce, and rice vinegar.
