I made Dim Sum

Not really. Whenever I have the crave for some dim sum, I steam these ready-to-cook dim sum pieces. They came out just like in the restaurants, without the hassle of driving somewhere to wait in line. Best of all, you cook what you want to eat.

The important thing is buying the correct items. Kimbo Dimsum Hap and Wei-Chuan Pork Mini Buns can be found at Viet Hoa International Market. They can be kept in the freezer for a few months.
Steam these ready-to-cook dimsum pieces bought at Viet Hoa International Market.
Easy steps:

  • Traditional flavor is to cook them in bamboo baskets. Alternative is using stainless steel steam pot.
  • Wet the baskets and follow instruction on package for water amount.
  • Line the baskets with vegetable leaves to prevent sticking and food fall into water. I used bok choy. Alternatives are Napa cabbage, green leave lettuce, kale or waxed paper.
  • Steam over high heat for 10 minutes, or directed by the manufacturers. Don't over cook the sticky rice wrapped dim sum. They will not retain the shape when mushy.
  • When done, remove baskets from the pot and place on plates. 
  • Ready to enjoy.
