Steamed dumplings are best cooked in a bamboo steamer. I learnt a new valuable tip when using the bamboo steamer in a wok. If your 1. wok is quite wide and large and your 2. bamboo steamer sits fairly close to the bottom of the wok, then there won’t be enough water for the steam to rise into the bamboo steamer. So what you need is this little contraption called a 3. wok ring. 4. You place the wok ring in the wok and place your bamboo steamer on top of the wok ring. What this does is keep your bamboo steamer high enough to have water sit underneath it to boil and the wok ring has holes on the side for water to come in and out of, making it perfect match for your wok and bamboo steamer.
