Tupperware Microwave Steamer

I have a microwave and apart from using it to melt butter and re-heat leftovers, I use it for little else. So, when I was sent Tupperware’s new MicroSteamer to try out, I was intrigued. Particularly, as the steamer has a inbuilt protective lining to protect whatever you are cooking from the microwave itself.

I instantly fell in love with the retro-ness of the steamer, it reminded me of the old school Tupperware that my mum had and still has. The resilience of the stuff is quite extraordinary.

Aesthetics aside, I was keen to take the MicroSteamer through its paces. The MicroSteamer comes with a really cute cookbook featuring 20 healthy and delicious recipes, but me being me had to try out one of my own creations, Prawn and Pork Dim Sum. The dumplings were steamed to perfection and I’ll definitely be trying out other recipes in this nifty kitchen accessory.

I recommend you add the MicroSteamer to your next Tupperware party shopping list. That, and the avocado saver, which is just pure genius.

Prawn & Pork Dumplings
Prep 30 minutes

Cook 14 minutes
Serves 6

You’ll need:

100g spring onions, finely chopped
300g pork mince
6 raw prawns, chopped into small dice
1 tsp salt
2 tbs sesame oil
2 tsp fresh ginger, grated
3 tsp Chinese rice wine
1 tbs cornflour
1 pckt round dumpling skins

Chives for garnish and chilli sauce to serve

Mix together the spring onions, pork, prawns, salt, sesame oil, ginger, rice wine, and cornflour together in a bowl.

Place a teaspoon of mixture into the centre of a dumpling skin and moisten the edges with water. Press down the edges into a half moon shape and press firmly to seal, ensuring that there are no air pockets. I used a ravioli cutter to seal the ends, but this is not necessary. Repeat this process, until you have used up all the mixture.

Bring a wok half filled with water the boil & line a bamboo steamer with baking paper pierced with holes. Place 8 or so dumplings in the steamer and place over the wok. Reduce the temperature to a simmer and steam the dumplings for 20 minutes. Repeat with remaining dumplings, garnish with snipped chives and serve with chilli sauce.

{If using the MicroSteamer, fill the water tray with 400ml of cold water. Line the base with cabbage leaves or baking paper pierced with holes. Place 8 or so dumplings on top, place the base on top of the tray, cover and cook on medium for 14 minutes. Repeat with remaining dumplings, garnish with snipped chives and serve with chilli sauce}
