anyone eat pre frozen package dumplings?
I prefer to just buy them. I think it's just isn't worth it to manually make them at home. It's time consuming.
I found getting frozen dumping skins is a pretty good in-between. You save yourself the most labor intensive part of the work and you can choose yourself what to put inside.
Making the dough isn't remotely labour intensive. It's stuffing them that's a twist to the tits.
I've made lots of dumplings in my time, the dough is the shittiest part. Flour everywhere, kneading, resting. And then constant rolling once you're ready to actually fold. If you have the dough it saves a ton of frustration.
I make my own dumplings. It's not hard, it just takes awhile. Folding dumplings is a fun activity if you have a girl over.
I use the frozen wrappers too. Shanghai style instead of Hong Kong style though.
>Folding dumplings is a fun activity
When I was a kid, my mum used me to do all the simple, labour intensive kitchen tasks she or the kitchen help didn't want to do, like stuffing dumplings or shucking and shelling beans. I hate making dumplings to this day.
Find a local Chinese store that sells locally produced skins worth few ingredients and short expiration date.
The skin must have structure and bite. The frozen dumplings have skins that are pure trash.
Don’t stuff too much filling. Dumplings are not supposed to be bulging. Having the right amount of filling means you can wrap these in seconds
I just had these today
Similar concept, different execution.
Believe it or not, that company used to have a fantastic line of dumplings sold exclusively at Dollar Tree which were above and beyond any other brand of frozen dumpling out there, including the "normal" varieties they sell at Asian supermarkets like the one in OP.
O'Tasty Tasty Selects.
They were tits.
They usually suck (usually very bland and flavorless), especially compared to my local Chinese place. I have to find any brand/package that I actually like. Shame I don't have a decent asian market that has good ones near me.
I dunno, my place nearby does their own, and they are WAY better than the shit in the frozen section. Especially fried they are fantastic.
*I have yet to find any brand/package that I actually like
>Shame I don't have a decent asian market that has good ones near me.
You might be surprised. There are Asian markets literally everywhere nowadays.
the Tai Pei brand they sell at Walmart is surprisingly good for frozen food. I'm not comparing them to real dumplings from a restaurant because that's retarded but if I had to choose between a frozen pizza or tendies or something I'd go with potstickers every time. The sauce they come with is trash though and it takes like 90 seconds to make your own.
Bibigo, a Korean brand, is pretty good if you can find it. They're slightly pricier but worth it, if you can't be bothered to make your own.
Yeah. These in particular.
Does Wei Chuan even make anything that isn't good?
i get these all the time. they are the best. follow the instructions exactly to get crispy bottom/steamed top.
yeh bro. My freezer has 3 bags atm. Find a good brand with all natural ingredients and it's a relatively healthy frozen snack. With little to no goysloppyness.
yeah but only the japanese ones are good and you cant get them easily outside of japan
you can get the chinese ones everywhere in the west but they're trash and dont fry up properly
Yep, love putting them into a bowl of ramen or say fuck it and put them in a bowl of Hispanicy gumbo
Probably the most unhealthy frozen food I can imagine my gf is a homosexual redditor and loves this stuff I have no idea why
I like the Bibigo ones they sell at Costco.
those are good, I also like the bibigo mini wontons
How tf do you fry these without them sticking to the pan? I followed the recipe on the bag and all of them stuck
bit of oil
I used more oil than the bag recommended because it seemed too little. Still stuck
What pan you using? post pic
Put cold oil in the pan after the pan reaches temp.
Yes, especially as Germany is now flooded by Ukrainian dumplings. Cheap too, so probably here to stay.
I always put a few in my rice cooker's steam basket. I know they'd be better fried, but I don't care.
I prefer the buns personally
Pretty sure I was eating that exact brand and flavour of dumplings every other day last winter. Used to boil them then just add powdered stock to the water and eat it like a soup. Good for arriving home way too fucking late every day in -20C and hating yourself.
Costco sells lingling brand pot stickers and they are delicious
love these from costco
also i wish there were some good frozen perogies out there
