   Chop cabbage fine, place in colander and pour boiling water over the
   cabbage. Cool to touch, then squeeze cabbage well to get the water
   out. In a bowl mix cabbage, chopped green onions, chopped mushrooms
   and grated ginger. Mix ground beef, wine, soy sauce, sesame oil and
   black pepper together with vegetables; mix well. Place a small amount
   of filling (about 1 teaspoon) in center of gyoza wrapping and fold in
   half. Pleat edge to seal. If edges won't stick together, dampen the
   inside edge with a little water, then pleat. Put 2 tablespoon salad
   oil in heated skillet (on medium heat). Place gyozas in skillet,
   close together and fry until golden brown. Then, at edge of pan, pour
   in a little water, up to 1/4 of the depth of the pot-stickers. Cover,
   turn heat to low and simmer until water is gone. Serve with dipping
   sauce as appetizer, or with hot rice as entree.

   SAUCE:Mix soy sauce with chili sesame oil. Use a proportion of 10
   parts soy sauce to 1 part oil; if you use a 5 to 1 proportion it may
   be a little hot for most people. The authentic sauce is a 2 to 1
   proportion.
