Gyoza/Jiaozi/Pot stickers

Here's something you don't see in an American kitchen too often (made fresh, anyway)
Gyoza! Or pot stickers, whatever. I love these things. I make them so often Ihardly bother measuring the ingredients anymore. You get yer' ground pork, soy sauce, garlic, scallions, salt and pepper, and an egg white (to hold it all together!) mix it all up (get your hands dirty, it's easier that way) and then you enlist your mother and sister to take a little spoonful of the filling and wrap a won-ton wrapper around it (get these guys at the store). Then you sear-steam-sear and eat up.

I like this recipe because it stretches your meat budget. With one pound of ground pork you can make roughly... 70 of these guys. Serve with some rice and veggies and you've got a nice meal.

Oh, they freeze easy too! Once frozen you don't even need to that them, just toss 'em in a pan and steam them. Better than anything you'd find in your supermarket freezer section ;]
