Just a note that using Everything Bagel seasoning in lieu of salt in this soft pretzel recipe yields delicious results.
I was excited to attempt these since we had a similar dish at an izakaya in Tokyo. I definitely haven’t mastered deboning wings, but these still tasted good. I used leftover (frozen) filling from the gyoza I made a few weeks ago.
A successful Japanese recipe on the books! To be fair, I also made negamaki less successfully – since mine fell apart, I’m going to leave this one off the website, but note for Japanese Challenge tracking purposes.
These gyoza were a big hit with my friend Rachel and her two kids, who love dumplings. They aren’t terribly hard, either – just time consuming, especially to wrap. This is from my Japanese Soul Cooking book.
I finally made egg rolls! I’ve had these bookmarked for something like two years, but the deep frying step has always been kind of daunting. I also cheated and had John roll them while I was working on other stuff. Really delicious! I did not include the pork when I made these because my friend who was coming over is a pescetarian, but they work fine without it.
