Gouza

These are a Japanese style pot sticker. We just love them. They are a little extra work but so worth it. Enjoy!

1 to 1 1/2 lbs ground pork
1 cup chopped cabbage
1/2 cup shredded carrots
1 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1 tsp ginger
1 pkg won ton wrappers
Squirt bottle of water

Dipping Sauce-
1/2 cup rice vinegar
1/2 cup teriyaki sauce or soy sauce
1 tbsp (+or-) Asian chili-garlic sauce {how hot do you like it?}

Brown pork. Add seasonings and soy sauce. Add cabbage and carrots and cook until desired softness. Fill won ton wrappers with about 2 tsp of mixture or what ever you think will fit, using a little water will help seal the edges.{ I don't normally fold mine the way they are pictured but I bought a different brand and they were awful to work with. The brand I prefer is Azumaya. I fold them in a half circle.}

Heat a pan with a small amount of oil- 1 or 2 tbsp. When hot enough that water sizzles, place gouza in the pan. Using a lid as a shield squirt about six squirts of water and shut the lid. Let them pan steam for 2-3 minutes squirting again about half way through the time. Gouza will be done when they are brown and crispy on the bottom and transparent and soft on top.
We like to eat them with rice and stir fry veggies.
