Gyoza Party

Dinner tonight was my parents’ specialty dish – gyoza. But first they made us work for our dinner. The sight of us daughters and sons-in-law diligently stuffing gyoza wrappers with a pork and veggie filling then pinching them closed with neat  pleats probably resembled a scene from a Chinese dumpling factory. But the employee meal provided afterward was well worth the hard work!

Piping-hot juicy gyoza:

Sautéed asparagus with bacon:

Black bean salad with avocado:

and not pictured was a seaweed and tofu soup.

My parents took a day trip to Hilo the day  before to visit Brother-in-Law #5’s (sister’s hubby’s) family so after dinner we enjoyed dragon eyes and rambutan fresh from the Hilo Farmer’s Market.

    saturday night i was alone wrapping gyoza in my lone factory until 11:30pm. our gyoza is becoming really popular! can never have our precious gyoza for staff meals. Actually once, i tried to follow otosan’s advice (precook veggies, increase sesame oil, increase salt) and got a bad result so we do have a stock of dekisokonai gyoza in the freezer. it is not his fault, the fatal mistake was my increasing the salt without alot of calculation.

      Wow – you wrap your gyoza all by yourself? I wonder if there is a “gyoza wrapper” or a machine that wraps gyoza. Congrats on your restaurant doing so well!! Don’t work too hard!
