Pat your pork confit into thin patties, then sear until deep golden brown on each side and fat has started to soften. Remove patties from heat and set aside. You may also want to use this time to carefully cut your egg in half. Be gentle with them--the yolk is still soft inside! Step 5: Add your noodles to the pot of boiling water and set a timer for 1:30 minutes. Using chopsticks or a fork, break up the noodles so they can cook evenly.

GYOZA KIT

GYOZA


Step 1: Unpack your box and thaw the raw filling in your refrigerator overnight, or under cool running water. Step 2: Gather the equipment necessary. You will need a mixing bowl, a saute pan with a lid, and a clean work surface with a small bowl of clean water. Step 3: Empty the filling mix into a mixing bowl. Holding a gyoza wrapper in your hand, pinch about one ounce of the filling from the bowl and place in the center of the wrapper. Dip your a finger or two into the water and run around the edge of the wrapper. This will allow the wet starch to act as a glue. Step 4: Fold your wrapper into a half-moon shape and press to seal. Beginning at one end and working to the other, pinch the sealed edge onto itself to create small, decorative folds in the top of the wrapper (See video for example). Do this with remaining wrappers and filling. Step 5: Heat your saute pan over medium heat and add enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan. Once oil is shimmering, place your gyoza in the pan and allow to sear until a bright, golden crust has formed on the underside. Drain any excess oil from the pan and pour ½ cup of water in the bottom and cover with lid. Allow to steam about 5-10 minutes, or until wrapper is soft and filling is fully cooked inside. You may want to cut one open to test after the 5 minute mark. Step 6: Remove the gyoza from the pan, dip in ponzu, and enjoy
