This is a fun quick meal. Pair it with an Asian soup or some rice and you have yourself a meal.
(Wow those last 5 words remind me of a very funny long story joke that has been told a few times in my prescence.  Anybody know the joke?)

I digress...

You fill a wok up with a few inches of water and place the steamer on top. You can bring the water to a boil and then turn down to a simmer.

Place the frozen buns, wontons or pot stickers inside and place the lid back on.

(Trader Joe's is a killer place for these frozen masterpieces.  They have vegetarian, pork, & chicken varieties.  The pork are usually the most tastey as well as traditional.)

I had placed the lid on for the steaming session, but in order to get a photo of the action, I quickly removed it.   Literally, we have steam in this picture.

Steam these little babies until they turn opaque or until the buns are soft and warm inside. About 7 minutes or so.  You could add the frozen brown rice (miecrowavable), sesame oil and green onions together in those 7 minutes and you're ready to go. 

Tip: The (pork) buns come with little papers on the bottoms, leave those on as they are there so that the bun doesn't stick to the bamboo. Sticky buns is not the goal here.

Have a rockin day and eat well and play well~
