BAM 36: Sui-gyoza 2 (2 of 3)

Saturday, November 27th, 2010
Here's the second super easy sui-gyoza dinner. I used a semi-instant ramen because I wanted to keep this recipe simple but I wasn't going to go as far as using instant ramen. The semi-instant ramen is available at most Japanese grocery stores and some Chinese grocery stores. I like tonkotsu ramen with suigyoza because the noodles thin and not too chewy (I want to keep the focus of the chewy texture on the sui-gyoza) and the soup is rich and flavorful. I chose tonkotsu ramen because I think the soup goes well with sui-gyoza.

Ingredients (Servings 2)
1 package of tonkotsu ramen noodles (usually it comes in a pack of 2)
8-10 sui-gyoza (4-5 per person)
any kind of green vegetable (bok choy, Chinese broccoli, etc.)

1) Boil two pots of water. One for the ramen soup and one for the ramen noodles.
2) Add the soup base to the water. Follow the directions on the package.
3) Separate the noodles so that they don't clump together when they boil. (Tip: Make sure the soup is ready to go before you boil the ramen noodles because they will only take 1-2 minutes and you don't want them to sit for long before you serve them.)
4) Wash and prep some sort of green vegetable to top your ramen. I like to use Chinese greens such as bok choy or Chinese broccoli. I used a spinach like green so I cooked it after the sui-gyoza were ready but if your greens take a little longer to cook such as Chinese broccoli, cook them before you drop in the sui-gyoza.
5) Add the suigyoza and cook them for 3-4 minutes if they are fresh or 4-5 minutes if they are frozen.

Semi-instant ramen comes with fresh noodles and a soup base.

Simmer the sui-gyoza for 3-4 minutes (fresh) or 4-5 minutes for frozen.

Add the greens. If you use bok choy or chinese broccoli, add them before you add the sui-gyoza.

Drop the ramen noodles into the boiling water when the suigyoza are cooking. They should take 1-2 minutes. Follow the directions on the package. Drain them and add them to bowls.
