Maruko Gyoza – Cooking gyoza at home + Giveaway!

It was a cold, wintry AND rainy night, and DS and I had run out of food at home. What to do? The solution, we have learned, is always to have a pack of Maruko Gyoza frozen in your freezer, ready to go for these dire times. SD Marketing Global invited me to try it out, so here’s a step by step guide below – and a competition for you to enter at the bottom! Don’t forget to scroll down to the end or check out the competition details on my Facebook page.

Happy cooking!

Maruko Gyoza is not hard to find if you’ve got a good Asian supermarket – look for the bright red packet amongst the frozen dumpling section! Then once you get home, the below image shows just what you need to make your gyoza. Super simple – a fry pan with a lid, some oil, some water and of course, your gyoza!

Add some oil to begin with…then chuck some frozen gyoza in straight from the packet (hopefully arranged more neatly than mine here!)

Then throw in 100mL of water and whack on your lid for a solid 4 minutes.

When your 4 minutes are up, take your lid off and let the water evaporate for a few more minutes. Then your gyoza should look like this! OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

And just like that, it’s ready to be served!

[Just as a side note, we’d recommend cooking in a well-ventilated area with an exhaust fan, as it does get quite smokey!]

Yum! Even Totoro thinks it looks like a good meal!

Don’t they look profesh? They taste amazing too, both DS and I were really surprised at the quality of the ingredients and how juicy the gyoza turned out to be on the inside while still keeping the crunch on the outside. If you’re keen to get an insider’s look into how they’re actually made, SD Marketing Global actually went to their factory! Check it out here.
