Gyoza were a staple snack in my house growing up, although we called them potstickers and bought them from the frozen aisle in bulk. They are easy to make but making them from scratch does take a little extra time. I love making them myself so I can experiment with a variety of flavors and different game meats. This is a fun way to use up that ground meat and is also a fun way to involve your family. These gyoza can be frozen in an airtight container for up to 3 months! You can cook them from frozen the same way you would cook the freshly made ones.
Some ingredients may be hard to find. I found all of these ingredients at my local Asian market, but substitutions can be found and your regular grocery store. To save time I opted to purchase pre-made gyoza wrappers but there are plenty of recipes online that can show you how to make your own from scratch.
