      I bought a few silicone dumpling steamer mats that go inside the steamer trays, from Aliexpress, they work well (they are perforated so they let the stem through)

      •  

        yes my worry with baking paper that doesnt have holes the steam wont go up easily

      I use silicone mat too. You can easily cut them to size to fit whatever steaming devices you are using.

      Alternatively I think you can use linen clothes for a more refined experience.

      buy "steamer paper" from eBay. It's lifechanging.

        I bought some air fryer liners but they don't really work well for that, so I think I'll use them in the steamer basket

        Thanks for the tip!

      Try a thin slice of carrot

      I used to just put in baking paper which also required that I cut it to shape and then cut some holes to allow the steam to go through. I ended up getting silicone steaming mats that were pre-cut to my steamer's size. This works a lot better since they're easy to clean.

      Cabbage/lettuce works too

    Thanks OP, any big sauce pockets inside the box? It happens with Mr.Chen prawn hargow, 1kg net weight includes 150g of dipping sauce.

    • +2 votes

      no sauce inside (other than the soup inside the dumpling)

    • +1 vote

      Dip it in some dark vinegar (w/ soy sauce if you prefer) No special sauce required.

      •  

        does that make the same taste at yumcha/packets in mr chen hargow

        •  

          Yes and no I suppose.

          At Yumcha they give you dark vinegar and/or soy sauce which is the traditional dip for SiuLongBao.

          The packet in Mr chen's is some sort of sweetened light (not salty) soy sauce. For hargaw it's tolerable but it's gonna ruin the soup taste in these dumplings.

          My personal take anyway.

  •  

    When they say soup filled, are they just the shell and the inside is just a liquid, or are there soilds inside the soup?

    • +4 votes

      It’s meat with frozen fat/soup cube. When heated up it will melt therefore creating the “soup filled”

    •  

      Yep, there is meat inside the dumpling (as well as the soup). As such, you have to be careful when you bite into it, as the soup will be piping hot, and the dumpling may pop when you bite into it and squirt the soup everywhere.

    Pray let me improve your culinary knowledge :-)

    The dumplings have a filling of mince pork with tiny "cubes" of gelatinous stock. Please do not ask how the stock is made. When steamed, the gelatinous stock turned into liquid , hence the "soup". The traditional way to eat these suckers is to take a nip into the side of the wrapping, suck the "soup" out, (NB tongue burning is optional.) Then dip the dumpling into chinese dumpling vinegar, with slivers of ginger if preferred, and swallow whole. Chewing is also optional ;-)

    How are these compared to the xlb in the thin plastic box with red text on the label?

  •  

    Warning.. It may burn the crap of your mouth.. If you were like me, totally oblivious to the danger due to too hungry 😂

    Don’t waste your money to buy this. It just worth 7 dollar for half kg. The best Soup Filled Pork Dumpling sold by Costco for $15 per kg.

    Tried various brands from woolies, coles, aldi & costco. Aldi’s is the best, one dumpling has nearly 1 table spoon of soup.

    Tip for steaming these: cut the cooking time to half (on high heat) then turn to low heat for a few minutes and turn the heat off, let them stand in the covered steamer for the remaining time. The dumplings will be burst or, leaked the soup when they are over cooked.

      I just tried cooking these for the first time and half of them burst and they definitely weren't over cooked, in fact they burst before they were even half cooked. They were still cool to the touch and the pork clearly not cooked.
