Recipe: Shiitake Gyoza with Stir-fried Pak Choy00:53|BRANDED
Gyoza is a Japanese style dumpling. These shiitake gyozas are succulent and juicy, packed full of shiitake mushroom umami. Serve with some fresh stir fried pak choy for a balanced dish. INGREDIENTS: - 1 packet Shiitake Gyoza - 2-3 Shanghai pak choy - 1 clove garlic, minced - 1 small piece of fresh ginger, minced - 1 tbsp sesame oil - vegetable stir fry sauce To serve - dumpling sauce - chili flakes - 2 spring onions, thinly sliced - 2 tbsp sesame seeds, black and white The Le Creuset non stick fry pan works very well when cooking Gyoza. METHOD: 1. In a non stick frypan, heat a dash of sesame oil over medium high heat. Place shiitake gyoza in the pan. Cook for 1-2 minutes, until the bottom of each gyoza browns. 2. Pour a cup of water in the pan then cover with a lid. Leave to steam for 5-6 minutes until all the water is evaporated. 3. Meanwhile, prepare and cook pak choy. Cut the end of pak choy – don’t trim too much – just the end. Separate the pak choy leaves and rinse. Keep the tender baby leaves in the middle of each bunch intact. In a cold wok or frypan, pour a dash of sesame oil and add minced ginger and garlic. Heat on medium high heat until the oil is hot and fragrant. Add the pak choy and stir fry until wilted. Add the stir fry sauce and continue to fry until tender. 4. Arrange pak choy and shiitake gyoza on a platter. Garnish with spring onions, chili flakes and sesame seeds. Pour over the dumpling sauce. Tip: You can cook these Shiitake Gyoza from frozen, straight out of the freezer. Adjust your steaming time. The wrapper of gyoza become a little transparent when cooked.
