O My, Sui Mei!

Make sure to wrap the sui mei extra tightly.

Try not to over stuff the sui mei,
so that they will not fall apart while steaming.

 We learned that it is important to place each sui mei an inch apart
or else they will stick together.

Although the recipe says to add an inch of water when steaming,
we found that if you add more than a 1/4 inch of water that
the bottom level sui mei will become soggy while being steamed.

Make sure to wear protective gear when removing the lid!

These  tasty dumplings go great with soy sauce
and Sambal Oelek, Ground Fresh Chili Paste.

If you are having a hard time finding Gyoza skins,
pot sticker wrappers can be used instead.
Baby Bella mushrooms can also replace the Crimini mushrooms.
Also, make sure to line the steamers with enough
Napa (Chinese Cabbage) or else the sui mei will stick to the wood.
Overall, if you are craving some quick dim sum
this is definitely the way to go!
