  • 250 grams ground pork
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 3 tbsp green onion/scallion chopped
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil extra for cooking
  • 1 pack gyoza wrapper store bought

For dipping sauce

  • 1 tbsp vinegar
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/8 tsp chili oil


  • In a bowl, Mix all ingredients and marinate for 30 minutes NOTE: marinate overnight for more flavorful filling
  • Prepare wrappers and some water in a bowl to seal the filling inside. Place a wrapper on your palm and place 1/2 tsp of ground pork in the middle. Brush some water on the side of the wrapper then fold the wrapper over the filling, but do not seal yet.
  • With your thumb, and index finger, start making a pleat about once every ¼ “ on the top part of the wrapper from left to right. As you fold each pleat, press the folded pleat tightly against the back part of the wrapper using your other thumb and index finger. Repeat the procedure until you finish all wrappers.
  • Heat 1/4 cup water in frying pan/skillet over medium heat.  Put in some gyoza and let steam for 5 minutes or when water evaporated. Pour sesame oil to fry the bottom for about 2 to three minutes. NOTE: Do not flip the gyoza! fry only the bottom part.
  • Repeat the procedure until you cooked all of the gyozas! Make the dipping sauce by mixing vinegar, soy sauce and chili oil. Serve and enjoy! Bon Appetit!
