So, in my previous post I discussed how I used the leftover gyoza filling for a stuffed cabbage. Today I will tell you what I did with the rest of the filling. For this I have to thank Ellie from Home Cooking in Montana. She gave me a recipe idea that I'd never heard of. She told me of a dish called Okonomiyaki. It's a Japanese style pancake and means "what you like cooked/grilled". You can read more about it here.
It was a perfect solution for my left over filling. You basically make a pancake batter that includes whatever filling you want. In this case it was my gyoza filling, and cabbage.
- 1/2 Cup flour
- 1/3 Cup water
- 1 egg
- 1 1/2 Cup of gyoza filling (you can use sausage, or left over chicken, etc.)
- 1 1/2 Cup finely chopped cabbage
It's simple to make.
Ingredients for sauce
- 2 Tbl butter
- 2 Tbl low sodium soy sauce
- 2 Tbl apple cider vinegar (or rice)
- 2 Tbl ketchup
For the pancakes, first combine the flour and water. Then stir in the egg.
Cook the meat in a pan until the pink is all gone.
The cabbage will brown on the bottom. Then flip the pancake and cook the other side for also about 3- 4 minutes.
This will not be my last experiment with Okonomiyaki, although I hope it's the last time I need to spell it. You need to try this!
