How to make homemade Kimchi Gyoza
If you are wondering how complicated this recipe gets, read on. This is the general overview of the steps.
For the full instructions make sure to follow along with the recipe card at the bottom of the post when you are actually cooking things.
Mix the filling
Toss all the filling ingredients in a bowl and mix it up with your hands until everything is mixed and evenly distributed.
Fill the wrappers
Don’t overfill. You need less than you think, and you’ll have a much easier time closing things if you don’t stuff them. Don’t forget that signature crimp!
Steam & Fry
Fresh dumplings need to be fully cooked, and we love using our Blackstone for this! Preheat your griddle, lay down some oil, brown the dumplings on the bottom, and then cover with a domed lid and squirt some water under and let the dumplings steam.
Serve these with a gyoza sauce or our spicy potsticker sauce!

Kimchi Gyoza FAQ
How do you store gyoza?
It is best to only cook as many gyoza as you will eat in one sitting. They fry up really quickly, so try to only cook what you can eat.
Uncooked gyoza can be frozen until you are ready to cook them.
How do you reheat cooked gyoza?
If you overshot the mark and still have some gyoza left that have already been cooked, the best way to reheat them would be in your air fryer or oven. That’ll maintain the crunch, which is what you want!
Can you cook these on the stove?
Absolutely! Just use a non-stick pan and follow the same general instructions for the stovetop that are for the recipe card.

Kimchi Gyoza Recipe
Homemade kimchi gyoza are going to blow you away! WAY easier to make than you are probably imagining too, and the folds are simple to master after a few tries!
- 1 package round gyoza wrappers
- 1 pound ground pork
- 1 cup kimchi, chopped
- 1 bunch green onions or scallions (greens only), chopped
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- 2 teaspoons sesame oil
- 3 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon mirin
- 1/2 teaspoon gochujang (optional)
- Combine the ground pork, kimchi, green onions, garlic, sesame oil, soy sauce, mirin, and gochujang (if using) in a bowl. Mix with your hands until all of the ingredients are evenly distributed.
- Carefully remove a wrapper from the package and wet the edges with water. Place a heaping tablespoon of filling inside, and fold into a half-circle.
- Make small pleats in the edges of the gyoza and repeat until you have used up all of the filling. Set aside. (If you are looking for a good tutorial on folding dumplings, check out one of my FAVORITE sites ever, The Woks of Life.
- Preheat your Blackstone Griddle over low heat for 10-15 minutes. Lay down a generous layer of oil and place the gyoza seam-side up onto the oiled griddle.
- Let cook for 3-4 minutes, or until the bottom is golden brown.
- Get a large domed cover ready and squirt some water down in the midst of the dumplings onto the griddle and cover quickly to steam. Listen for the water to burn off, and check the dumplings. The internal temperature needs to be at least 160°. If it is not, steam a bit more.
- If desired, you can brown another side of the gyoza, but this is optional.
- Remove and serve with dipping sauce.
* You can cook this indoors in a non-stick frypan if necessary!

Yup! Just put them on a big cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and freeze them while they aren't touching. Once they are frozen, you can put them all in a big freezer baggie.
