Check Out These Terrific Soup Dumplings You Can Make At Home!
First: this is my review of a product I bought online. I do not know these people, and this is NOT a sponsored review in any way!
Time To Hug A Dumpling!
I order food from Goldbelly and other online websites – perhaps that’s why this ad showed up on my Facebook page…but it intrigued me, as I am a huge fan of “soup dumplings”, named for the small amount of broth that is inside a traditional dumpling.
So I bought them and made them – here’s my review!
My wife had already bought me a bamboo insert for my deep dish frying pan, so I set it on the stove with an inch of water as a base, and started to lay out my frozen dumplings:
When you buy the bags of frozen dumplings, 50 to a package, they give you some thin steamer sheets to put down on top of your bamboo steamer.
I spaced the dumplings out, put the top on, and let them steam for 11+ minutes…
There really is nothing to do but watch the clock…and watch and check I did…
Now, you know what they say about a “watched pot”, so I walked away.
After eleven minutes, I turned the heat off and waited another two minutes before I lifted the lid to this:
So now that they are cooked and sitting there steaming, it’s time to eat!
Soup Dumplings are supposed to be eaten by taking a small bite out of the corner and slurping up the soup inside – and then eating the rest.
While I do that on some, some I also just pop in whole and let the soup burst out inside my mouth!
One of the best aspects of this company is that they also sell dipping sauces – I got all three, which are unique and delicious in their own way:
Classic Vinegar and Chili Crisp are both delicious – but the Scallions in Vinegar And Oil is amazing – and while, as I said, the traditional way to eat a Soup Dumpling is to bite the corner and drink the juice first, I like mine this way:
I put whatever sauce I want on a spoon, add the dumpling and pop the whole thing in at once – love it!
According to the company, they make all of these by hand – all of the ingredients inside are fresh, and they taste amazing!
Again, I bought this online, paid full price, and the company has no idea I reviewed them – bravo to them for a terrific product, delicious flavor, inventive sauces and a great price at 50 frozen dumplings to a bag for about $40!
