What is Gyoza?

The original gyozas are from China and consist of ground meat and vegetable filling wraps or empanadillas. Usually boiled, steamed, pan-fried or deep-fried.

The Japanese version though consists of pan-fried and steamed gyoza. First fried in a pan to get a crispy bottom and then steamed on the same pan to get a soft top gyoza.
