bamboo steamer using a wok

A wok is a very essential tool in an Asian kitchen. Not only it’s great to stir fry and deep fry, you can turn it into a great steamer, another benefit of a wok that not so many people recognize. The bamboo steamer fits inside the wok snugly and the wok is usually deep enough for the number of bamboo layers you will use. Make sure it rests securely against the sloping sides without touching the surface of the water. Cover the bamboo steamer with its matching lids and check the water level time to time and add more boiling water if necessary.

The best thing about using the wok as a steamer is that you can use different sizes of bamboo steamers to fit your cooking needs. Bamboo steamers range in sizes from small for dumplings and dimsum to those that are large enough to hold a whole fish.
