  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook noodles at a boil until softened yet firm to the bite, about 3 minutes. Drain and run under cold water for 1 minute. Transfer noodles to a flat work surface; cut into small pieces.
  2. Combine noodles, pork, onion, napa cabbage, soy sauce, chile-garlic sauce, sesame oil, garlic, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Stir filling together with a spoon or mash by hand.
  3. Place 3/4 tablespoon filling in the center of each wrapper. Wet your fingers and run them along the edges of the wrapper. Fold over the filling; press ends together using a fork. Flip and repeat on the other side to strengthen the seal. Repeat filling and shaping with the remaining filling and wrappers.
  4. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add mandoo; cook until lightly browned and crispy, 4 to 5 minutes. Add about 1/2 inch water. Cook, covered, until liquid is absorbed, about 5 minutes.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • You can use wonton wrappers in place of the gyoza wrappers.
  • Ground chicken may be substituted for the pork.
  • You can find the sweet potato noodles at international grocery stores. They are clear with a greenish tint. The chile sauce is usually sold in small plastic tubs. The one I usually buy is made by the same company that makes the sriracha sauce in the squeeze bottles.
  • These also freeze extremely well. Steam them first and let them cool before tossing them in the freezer. Later you can still cook these how you like.
  • To cut down on prep time throw the vegetables in a food processor. It will grind them to the perfect consistency!
