Instant Pot Soup Dumplings (Xiao Long Bao)

You’ve probably heard of the Instant Pot ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

But these simple & easy to follow recipes work with any pressure cooker! All pressure cookers work on the same, simple principle: Steam pressure.

Within the sealed pot, the steam builds up therein to a very high pressure, which helps food cook much faster than other traditional methods, such as with crock pots and or ovens!

To those tho know me well, they may tell you I’m the Soup Dumpling King of NYC. I’ve been crowned this title because I’ve been to pretty much all the joints that serve up these little pillows of heaven. We are talking dumplings that aren’t just regular dumplings. No, these are dumplings where SOUP is embedded INSIDE the dumpling skin encasing the pork mixture! They are Shanghai-style and known as Xiao Long Bao in Chinese (and commonly referred to as XLBs). If you go to the right put (after going to all of the “must trys,” I’ve found that Joe’s Shanghai in Flushing, Queens in NYC is consistently THE best) you will literally be transported to cloud nine. So – HERE IT IS GUYS! The HOMEMADE SOUP DUMPLING in the INSTANT POT! They are going to make ALL of your nearest and dearest go “WOW! – You actually made these?!
