Ravioli, pierogi, momo, xiaolongbao–every food culture has its own style of dumplings, and in Japan’s case, that’s gyoza. Already popular as an izakaya dish and bento box staple, gyoza is becoming a household name in the U.S. Making gyoza from scratch is a little hassle, but you can enjoy its hearty, comforting flavor at home thanks to Day-Lee Pride brand’s frozen gyoza. The brand recently expanded its gyoza selection by introducing a new, upgraded line: Umami Gyoza Dumplings.
Translated into savoriness or flavorfulness, umami is a taste delivered through the breakdown of protein in ingredients that release glutamates to generate the enticing, savory flavor. Day-Lee Pride’s regular gyoza line is already rich in umami, but the new Umami Gyoza Dumpling line enhances its feature by using carefully chosen umami-rich ingredients without adding MSG, and it tantalizes savory taste buds in three mouthwatering varieties: Chicken & Leek (light with a hint of onion), Chicken & Shiitake (light yet earthy) and Pork & Leek (rich and hearty). Made with only high quality chicken leg meat and premium pork, the three gyoza varieties contain different blends of ingredients like kombu (edible kelp), nira (Chinese Leek), soy sauce, garlic and shiitake mushrooms.
Easy to prepare by pan-frying, deep-frying, microwaving, steaming or adding into soups, Umami Gyoza Dumplings bring restaurant-quality taste to the dinner table in minutes. You can find their favorite Day-Lee Pride foods at national and local retailers across the United States.
