     1/4 c  Japanese soy sauce
       1 ts Rice wine vinegar
       1 ds Rayu or sesame oil
  
   “Pot Stickers”
   
   Cook cabbage in a small amount of boiling salted water
   until tender. Squeeze out all liquid and mince fine.
   Chop mushroom. Mix soy sauce, sesame oil, Mirin, pork,
   green onion, ginger, mushroom, and cabbage.
   Refrigerate for 1 hour or more.
   
   Place a scant teaspoon of mixture on each gyoza skin.
   Moisten edges with cornstarch and water, fold over and
   seal. Crimp edges with a fork. Cover bottom of a large
   non-stick skillet (electric is good) with oil. Brown
   the gyoza over medium heat (350 degrees) turning
   frequently. Add 1/4 c water to skillet- let, cover and
   steam on low heat 7 minutes. Stir often to prevent
   sticking. Remove cover, raise heat and cook for 2
   minutes until crisp.
   
   Place sauce on table in small individual bowls. Gyoza
   may be prepared in advance or frozen. Lay them in a
   single layer on a greased cookie sheet, and cover with
   greased paper. Thaw before cooking.
   
   “Pot Stickers” are usually served as a first course.
   They are also excellent as an appetizer.
   
   Suggestion: Egg Drop Soup and “Pot Stickers”, followed
   by Beef and Oyster Sauce a crisp green vegetable and
   hot Chinese tea.
