The instructions recommend nuking the dumplings in the microwave in the packets provided. The cooking process included an exciting-sounding explosion. This certainly impressed Pat, who was roped into an evening of dumpling reviewing. It adds a certain edge to a meal when it sounds like your food is attacking.
The explosion didn’t harm the dumplings, but I thought they did turn out a little dry. But to be fair, as Pat said, you can’t complain for a dumpling ready to eat in a minute and a half.
