  • 1/2 Inch Ginger
  • 1 Stalk Green Onion
  • 1 Whole Egg
  • 1 tbsp Half & Half or Heavy Cream
  • 1/4 tbsp Salt
  • 1/8 tbsp Black Pepper
  • 1/2 Cup Pork Rinds unflavored
  • 1 tsp Sesame Oil
  • 1 tsp Soy Sauce
  • 1 tsp Japanese Sake
  • 9-10 Sheets Soy Paper 3x7 inches
  • 1 tbsp Cooking Oil

  • 1 tbsp Ponzu
  • 1/2 tsp Rice Vinegar / Distilled White Vinegar

  • Gather all the ingredients.
  • Soak dried shiitake mushroom in warm water until softens, should be about 5-10 minutes.
  • Crush pork rinds. An easy way to do this keep pork rinds inside the bag and use the palm of your hand to ‘grind’ them down or use a food processor. Add to mixing bowl. Note - you should end up with ~1/8 cup of crushed pork rinds.
  • Dice cabbage leaves and place into mixing bowl.
  • Grate garlic and place into mixing bowl.
  • Grate ginger and place into mixing bowl.
  • Thinly slice green onions and place into mixing bowl.
  • Shiitake mushroom should be soft now, so de-stem, dice mushrooms and add to mixing bowl.
  • Place ground pork, sesame oil, soy sauce, half & half, egg, and Japanese sake into mixing bowl. Moderately sprinkle salt and lightly sprinkle pepper. Mix well.
  • Fold over soy paper horizontally (longways) and cut. You should end up with 18-20 square pieces.
  • Lay the soy paper down at a 45-degree angle and place about 1 tbsp of the Gyoza mix in the center of the soy paper. Bring the bottom of the soy paper to the top forming a triangle and gently press down the center to flatten as shown in pictures below. Set aside onto holding a plate.
  • In a large Teflon frying pan, add cooking oil on medium heat. Once the oil is up to temperature (about 2 minutes), place gyoza down and cook for 1-2 minutes on each side until slightly browned.
  • Transfer to serving plate and serve with dipping sauce of choice.
