The blob, part ii. Another baggie of “merged” dumplings. Options were to toss it or “bite the bullet” and eat it. Ugh! Erring on the side of not wanting to waste, The Mouse decided to tackle the blob. Instead of another steaming episode, The Mouse decided to fry it. A little oil, non-stick fry pan, and medium low heat. About ten/fifteen minutes on one side, flipped for another ten/fifteen minutes on the other side, half cup of water or so, turned the heat to medium/medium high, and covered for another five/ten minutes.

Fried Blob

Also known as one giant pot-sticker. Hee hee. 

Hundred times better than steamed, but still a challenge. The Mouse had to take a food coma nap after. Zzz.

BTW, much thanks to https://hangakugozen.wordpress.com/ for the suggestion and instructions for frying, I guess great minds think alike. \ooo/

Stay safe and well.

The Cat brought home a bag of pork and shrimp filled dumplings. Problem is either they defrosted or something. The dumplings became a massive lump of dough, the dumplings could not be pulled, pried, or chiseled apart (The Mouse tried). Not to waste, The Mouse tried steaming the whole thing in one lump.

Steamed Blob

At first The Mouse thought maybe ravioli or lasagna-like? This was before the first bite. Uhm, no. Raviolo and lasagna have a balanced texture and taste (designed). This blob had parts that were all dough, no filling, bleh. Maybe gravy or marinara or meat sauce (yeah meat sauce) would help? Ugh!

Or … Maybe target practice? Just kidding … Hmm.

Oh well, win some …

Stay safe and well.

Rabbit Raviolo

Chef H made for The Cat and The Mouse. The Mouse thinks Chef had some extra time on his hands, dining room closed, take-out only.

Vacuum Pack

Chef H made it easy, drop bag in boiling water for 10-15 minutes, cut pack and serve. The Mouse followed directions.
