    Japanese-style Naked Gyoza Kebabs (Gluten-Free)


    Jefferson Adams

    Celiac.com 08/22/2013 - I love gyoza, Japanese pot-stickers that are often pan-fried, but can also be steamed. However, since giving up gluten, I've had to say goodbye to many of my old favorites, including gyoza.

    Photo: CC--loozrboyNow, I've experimented with gluten-free version of gyoza, but I haven't yet produced a winner. Until I do, whenever I crave gyoza, I fire up the grill, and get busy mixing up some gyoza skewers. I think they're a great alternative to traditional gyoza.

    My wife calls them grilled meatballs, but I call them naked gyoza kebabs, which, for me makes them even more appetizing than they already are. My wife may quibble, but we both agree that, whatever we call them, they are delicious.

    Ingredients:

    • 1 pound ground pork
    • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
    • 1 cup shredded Napa cabbage
    • 2 green onions, or chives, finely chopped
    • 1 tablespoon minced ginger
    • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
    • ⅓ teaspoon hot chili oil, or to taste
    • ⅓ teaspoon sesame oil
    • 1 dozen skewers, soaked in water for 20 minutes
    • salt
    • pepper

    Directions:
    Blanch the shredded cabbage in salted boiling water, until it is tender, but still crisp.

    Plunge into ice cold water, remove, and drain thoroughly, and dry on a paper towel.

    In a medium bowl, combine the ground pork, cooked cabbage, green onion, minced ginger, egg, soy sauce, chili oil and sesame oil.

    Roll meat mixture into 2-inch ovals. Skewer and grill.

    Serve these kebabs with a bit of ponzu, or with soy sauce with a bit of minced ginger, garlic and a splash of rice vinegar.

    I wonder if blanching cabbage leaves and using them as a wrapper would work? I'm not sure about the mechanics of doing that, but I've separately used lettuce leaves as a sandwich "wrap" and found that quite acceptable.

    How about spring roll wrappers, or pieces thereof? Many of them are made of only white rice and water.

    I've been missing gyoza too. I was thinking of doing gyoza meatballs and baking them in the oven. I wonder how that would work out.

    Gluten-free Pork Gyoza

    Serves: Makes 20

    Preparation time: Approx. 45 minutes (plus 30 minutes resting time if making wrappers)

    Cooking time: Approx. 15 minutes

    Ingredients

    Wrappers*

    300g cooked, peeled taro

    3 tsp baking powder

    1kg glutinous rice flour

    2 tbsp. vegetable oil

    Pork filling

    400g lean minced pork

    1 cup finely shredded Chinese cabbage (wombok)

    1 tsp sesame oil

    1 tbsp. Gluten free soy sauce

    3cm-piece ginger, peeled, grated

    2 garlic cloves, crushed

    Dipping sauce

    80mL (1/3 cup Gluten free soy sauce

    2cm piece ginger, peeled, grated

    1 tsp sesame oil

    1 red birds-eye chilli, chopped

    Method

    1. To make the wrappers, process taro in a food processor with 1 tbsp. salt and baking powder. With the motor running, add a little water, then a little flour. Repeat, alternating with water and flour until you have used 500mLs of water and all the flour, and mixture forms a dough. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 5 minutes or until smooth. Rest for 30 minutes.

    2. Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface until 2mm thick. Using a 7cm round cutter, cut the wrappers into 20 rounds.

    3. To make the pork wrappers, combine all the ingredients in a bowl.

    4. Spoon 1 teaspoonful of the filling into the centre of each wrapper. Brush edges with water and fold wrappers over filling, pressing edges together to seal.

    5. Spoon 1 teaspoonful of the filling into the centre of each wrapper. Brush edges with water and fold wrappers over filling, pressing edges together to seal.

    6. Heat half the oil in a large frying pan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium high and cook half the gyozas for 1 minute or until bases are browned.

    7. Add 125mL hot water, cover and cook for 4 minutes, adding more water, if necessary.

    8. Remove from heat. Uncover and stand for 1 minute or until gyozas come away from pan easily. Repeat with remaining oil and gyozas.

    9. Meanwhile, to make dipping sauce, place all ingredients into a bowl and stir to combine.

    10. Serve gyozas with dipping sauce on the side.

    Celiac.com 02/05/2015 - If you love fried chicken, and especially if you love great fried chicken that happens to be gluten-free, then you’ll love Japanese-style fried chicken that uses potato starch to create a golden crispy crust, and a truly tender, juicy fried chicken that will have empty plates asking for more.
    This chicken is marinated in soy sauce, ginger and garlic, then dredged in potato starch and fried until it is crispy, yet tender, and delicious, oh, so delicious...
    Ingredients:
    1 pound chicken thighs – boneless skin-on cut into 1-inch pieces 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated 2 cloves garlic, minced 2 tablespoons gluten-free soy sauce 1½ tablespoon sake 2 teaspoons granulated sugar ½ cup potato starch lard or vegetable oil for frying Lemon wedges as garnish Japanese Mayonnaise (Miracle Whip), as desired Hot mustard, as desired Directions:
    Add the ginger, garlic, soy sauce, sake and sugar to a bowl and whisk to combine. Add the chicken, then stir to coat evenly.
    Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for at least an hour.
    Line a wire rack with paper towels and have your tongs or cooking chopsticks handy.
    Put the potato starch in a bowl.
    Add a few pieces of chicken to the potato starch and toss to coat each piece evenly.
    Add 1 inch of vegetable oil to a heavy bottomed pot and heat until the oil reaches 360 degrees F.
    Fry the chicken in small batches until the outside is a golden brown and the chicken is cooked through.
    When chicken is golden brown, transfer to the paper towel lined rack. Allow to cool. Serve warm with small bowls of hot mustard and kewpie (Japanese mayonnaise).
    If you want the chicken to stay crispy longer, especially if you are transporting it, or plan to serve it later, you can fry the chicken a second time. Just repeat the frying process after it has cooled off.
    Serve with lemon edges, mustard and mayonnaise.

    Celiac.com 06/21/2018 - Would you buy a house advertised as ‘gluten-free’? Yes, there really is such a house for sale. 
    It seems a Phoenix realtor Mike D’Elena is hoping that his trendy claim will catch the eye of a buyer hungry to avoid gluten, or, at least one with a sense of humor. D’Elena said he crafted the ads as a way to “be funny and to draw attention.” The idea, D’Elena said, is to “make it memorable.” 
    Though D’Elena’s marketing seeks to capitalizes on the gluten-free trend, he knows Celiac disease is a serious health issue for some people. “[W]e’re not here to offend anybody….this is just something we're just trying to do to draw attention and do what's best for our clients," he said. 
    Still, the signs seem to be working. D'elena had fielded six offers within a few days of listing the west Phoenix home.
    "Buying can sometimes be the most stressful thing you do in your entire life so why not have some fun with it," he said. 
    What do you think? Clever? Funny?

    Celiac.com 06/20/2018 - Currently, the only way to manage celiac disease is to eliminate gluten from the diet. That could be set to change as clinical trials begin in Australia for a new vaccine that aims to switch off the immune response to gluten. 
    The trials are set to begin at Australia’s University of the Sunshine Coast Clinical Trials Centre. The vaccine is designed to allow people with celiac disease to consume gluten with no adverse effects. A successful vaccine could be the beginning of the end for the gluten-free diet as the only currently viable treatment for celiac disease. That could be a massive breakthrough for people with celiac disease.
    USC’s Clinical Trials Centre Director Lucas Litewka said trial participants would receive an injection of the vaccine twice a week for seven weeks. The trials will be conducted alongside gastroenterologist Dr. James Daveson, who called the vaccine “a very exciting potential new therapy that has been undergoing clinical trials for several years now.”
    Dr. Daveson said the investigational vaccine might potentially restore gluten tolerance to people with celiac disease.The trial is open to adults between the ages of 18 and 70 who have clinically diagnosed celiac disease, and have followed a strict gluten-free diet for at least 12 months. Anyone interested in participating can go to www.joinourtrials.com.

    Celiac.com 06/19/2018 - Could baking soda help reduce the inflammation and damage caused by autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease? Scientists at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University say that a daily dose of baking soda may in fact help reduce inflammation and damage caused by autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease.
    Those scientists recently gathered some of the first evidence to show that cheap, over-the-counter antacids can prompt the spleen to promote an anti-inflammatory environment that could be helpful in combating inflammatory disease.
    A type of cell called mesothelial cells line our body cavities, like the digestive tract. They have little fingers, called microvilli, that sense the environment, and warn the organs they cover that there is an invader and an immune response is needed.
    The team’s data shows that when rats or healthy people drink a solution of baking soda, the stomach makes more acid, which causes mesothelial cells on the outside of the spleen to tell the spleen to go easy on the immune response.  "It's most likely a hamburger not a bacterial infection," is basically the message, says Dr. Paul O'Connor, renal physiologist in the MCG Department of Physiology at Augusta University and the study's corresponding author.
    That message, which is transmitted with help from a chemical messenger called acetylcholine, seems to encourage the gut to shift against inflammation, say the scientists.
    In patients who drank water with baking soda for two weeks, immune cells called macrophages, shifted from primarily those that promote inflammation, called M1, to those that reduce it, called M2. "The shift from inflammatory to an anti-inflammatory profile is happening everywhere," O'Connor says. "We saw it in the kidneys, we saw it in the spleen, now we see it in the peripheral blood."
    O'Connor hopes drinking baking soda can one day produce similar results for people with autoimmune disease. "You are not really turning anything off or on, you are just pushing it toward one side by giving an anti-inflammatory stimulus," he says, in this case, away from harmful inflammation. "It's potentially a really safe way to treat inflammatory disease."
    The research was funded by the National Institutes of Health.

    Celiac.com 06/18/2018 - Celiac disease has been mainly associated with Caucasian populations in Northern Europe, and their descendants in other countries, but new scientific evidence is beginning to challenge that view. Still, the exact global prevalence of celiac disease remains unknown.  To get better data on that issue, a team of researchers recently conducted a comprehensive review and meta-analysis to get a reasonably accurate estimate the global prevalence of celiac disease. 
    The research team included P Singh, A Arora, TA Strand, DA Leffler, C Catassi, PH Green, CP Kelly, V Ahuja, and GK Makharia. They are variously affiliated with the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, Massachusetts; Lady Hardinge Medical College, New Delhi, India; Innlandet Hospital Trust, Lillehammer, Norway; Centre for International Health, University of Bergen, Bergen, Norway; Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, Massachusetts; Gastroenterology Research and Development, Takeda Pharmaceuticals Inc, Cambridge, MA; Department of Pediatrics, Università Politecnica delle Marche, Ancona, Italy; Department of Medicine, Columbia University Medical Center, New York, New York; USA Celiac Disease Center, Columbia University Medical Center, New York, New York; and the Department of Gastroenterology and Human Nutrition, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India.
    For their review, the team searched Medline, PubMed, and EMBASE for the keywords ‘celiac disease,’ ‘celiac,’ ‘tissue transglutaminase antibody,’ ‘anti-endomysium antibody,’ ‘endomysial antibody,’ and ‘prevalence’ for studies published from January 1991 through March 2016. 
    The team cross-referenced each article with the words ‘Asia,’ ‘Europe,’ ‘Africa,’ ‘South America,’ ‘North America,’ and ‘Australia.’ They defined celiac diagnosis based on European Society of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition guidelines. The team used 96 articles of 3,843 articles in their final analysis.
    Overall global prevalence of celiac disease was 1.4% in 275,818 individuals, based on positive blood tests for anti-tissue transglutaminase and/or anti-endomysial antibodies. The pooled global prevalence of biopsy-confirmed celiac disease was 0.7% in 138,792 individuals. That means that numerous people with celiac disease potentially remain undiagnosed.
    Rates of celiac disease were 0.4% in South America, 0.5% in Africa and North America, 0.6% in Asia, and 0.8% in Europe and Oceania; the prevalence was 0.6% in female vs 0.4% males. Celiac disease was significantly more common in children than adults.
    This systematic review and meta-analysis showed celiac disease to be reported worldwide. Blood test data shows celiac disease rate of 1.4%, while biopsy data shows 0.7%. The prevalence of celiac disease varies with sex, age, and location. 
    This review demonstrates a need for more comprehensive population-based studies of celiac disease in numerous countries.  The 1.4% rate indicates that there are 91.2 million people worldwide with celiac disease, and 3.9 million are in the U.S.A.
