Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.

  1. These look great and I havea lot of cabbage to use up at the moment! I like that you used jalepeno. These look like they would freeze well. Since the recipe makes 40-50 you could make a big batch and then bring them out a few hours before lunch or dinner as needed. Great job!

    • Yeah they do freeze really well, and it’s pretty good after it thaws out… I’ve actually just cooked them straight up without thawing too and they turn out okay as well,… but just remember to have a lid on when you do that cuz they will splatter a lot.

  2. Guess it’s time to find some real Tamari sauce! All ever seem to be able to find is garbage.

  10. These look great, they are going on the menu for next week. I’m just wondering have you ever tried steaming them? Oh I bet they would be great in soup as well.

    Thanks for the recipe, I’ll be voting for you!

    • I’ve never directly steamed these before. Steaming raw meat seems tricky to me. I have added water after frying them (2 tbsp) to create a steam effect and closing the lid and then the water evaporates and it frys again… this is the traditional way to make gyozas with the skin(creates a crispy and chewy texture)… however with the skin off,… this method doesn’t seem to change the texture all that much so I just leave that step out and just fry it.

  17. Made these last sunday night & froze them. Cooked them tonight (Friday)

    Very nice indeed!

    I did however make them a little big. Only got 20 out of the recipe :S

    I fried them to seal & them popped them in the bamboo steamer to finish off

  20. These sound scrumptious. Eager to try them. If I plan to freeze some is it best to freeze them cooked or raw?
