How to Cook Steamed Dumplings

Updated: May 3

The best way to cook perfectly steamed dumplings.



Step 1

Bring half a pot of water to boil.


Step 2

Add your dumplings, but make sure not to overcrowd the pot with too many dumplings (tempting though, we know).


Step 3

Let your dumplings cook for 2 minutes.


Step 4

Add some cold water to your pot to lower the water temperature and allow the meat inside to cook through. This method helps prevent the skins from over cooking.


Step 5

Let cook for 1 minute at medium heat.


Step 6

Repeat steps 4 - 5 two more times.


Step 7

Scoop your dumplings out of the pot, serve, and enjoy with our go-to simple dumpling sauce.
