Missing the annual Gyozapalooza, I had been gathering ingredients for making my own gyoza and finally got around to making them recently. I started with this recipe from Use Real Butter, which I suppose is technically chinese potsticker filling.
I used Marin Sun Farms ground pork, which I think perhaps was on the lean side, so the filling wasn’t as moist as I would’ve liked. I think I’d like to try the shrimp and pork variation as well.
I made the first batch with gyoza wrappers, and another batch a few days later with potsticker wrappers, which are significantly thicker. With this particular filling, I did prefer it better with the potsticker wrappers, which gave the whole piece a nice chewiness, and browned very nicely.
