Introduction: 10-Minute Boiled Dumplings
Frozen dumplings might not taste as good as my mom's homemade ones, but if I need a quick and cheap meal, 1 large pack of frozen dumplings can last me 2-3 meals, and they only cost around $5! There are a multitude of ways to cook dumplings: steamed, panfried, deep-fried, etc, but the easiest and fastest way to cook a pack of dumplings is boiling.
Step 1: Ingredients
- 1 pack frozen dumplings
- Chinese black vinegar
- Light soy sauce
- Sesame oil (optional)
Step 2: Boil Water and Make Sauce
- Boil around 2 cups of water
- As you are waiting for the water to boil, make the dumpling sauce:
- In a small bowl, mix together the black vinegar and soy sauce in a 3:2 ratio
- Add in a couple drops of sesame oil
- If you like spicy, add in some chili oil if you have any available
Step 3: Cook the Dumplings
When the water begins to boil, add in your frozen dumplings, which will cause the water to stop boiling. Wait for the water (dumplings included this time!) to start boiling again, and add in another cup of water. Do this boil and add water cycle around 3 times to make sure the dumplings are thoroughly cooked. After they've boiled 3 times, scoop the dumplings out of the water, dip them in your dumpling sauce, and enjoy!
