How To Reheat Leftover Dumplings - Say NO to Soggy Dumplings

At United Dumplings, we understand that sometimes you can't finish all the delicious dumplings in one sitting. No worries, we've got you covered! At United Dumplings, we totally get it - no one wants to sink their teeth into a soggy dumpling. That's why we're here to share the ultimate guide on how to reheat your dumplings while keeping that satisfying crunch intact. First things first, this is for our leftover dumplings that were fully cooked.. They're like little pockets of happiness, and we want to ensure that they taste just as delightful when you reheat them.

Method 1: Pan Searing (Recommended):

We recommend pan searing as the best way to reheat your dumplings. Not only does it maintain their crispy bottoms, but it also brings out their wonderful flavors. Here's how to do it:

  1. Add 1 tablespoon of neutral cooking oil to a pan over medium heat. Ensure the oil coats the pan without pooling. Let it shimmer without smoking.

  2. Place your dumplings in the pan, ensuring they're not touching. Reduce the heat to medium-low.

  3. Add 1/4 - 1/2 cup of water (adjust for pan size) to the pan. Shield yourself with the pan lid and carefully pour the water into the hot pan. You'll hear the delightful sizzle.

  4. Cover the pan to let the steam cook the top of the dumplings. Let them simmer for 4-6 minutes (7-10 minutes if frozen).

  5. Keep an eye on the pan to ensure there's enough water.

  6. Uncover the dumplings and let any remaining water evaporate. Allow the bottoms to crisp to a light golden brown.

  7. Serve with your preferred sauce and indulge in the deliciousness!

Method 2: Microwaving:

If you're in a hurry, microwaving is a convenient option. Here's how to do it:

  1. Transfer your desired number of dumplings to a microwave-safe dish or a shallow bowl.

  2. Add 1-2 tablespoons of water to the dish.

  3. Cover the dish with a damp paper towel and microwave for 2 minutes.

  4. Check the temperature and continue microwaving in 30-second intervals if needed.

  5. Drain any excess water and get ready to enjoy your dumplings!

A Note of Delight:

Remember, reheating leftover dumplings is about preserving their wonderful taste and texture. Whichever method you choose, you'll be treated to a satisfying meal that brings back memories of the first bite.

We're here to make your dumpling experience a delightful journey, from cooking to reheating. Visit us at United Dumplings and savor the joy of authentic Northern Chinese cuisine!
