Mom’s original gyoza recipe by Mikiko
Mikiko Ellison is from Tokyo, Japan and is a board member of JCS Maui, now residing in Pukalani. She learned how to make gyoza by helping her mom when she was a child. Whenever she goes home to Japan from Maui, her mom, who loves gyoza, is always happy to make some for her.
At this event, Mikiko will introduce her mom’s gyoza recipe, which she describes as “so simple and easy that anyone can make and enjoy!”
Gyoza is a Japanese dish consisting of wonton wrappers that have been stuffed with ground meat and vegetables. These may be popularly known in American culture as potstickers, but gyoza tend to have smaller or thinner skin. Japanese soldiers first had gyoza during World War II while in China. Once home, they wanted to recreate the delicious dumplings they had eaten in China. Today in Hawaii, gyoza is enjoyed as a side dish or snack.
