Reviews for Steamed Pork and Shrimp Dumplings
"I made these for the first time and found them quite good but a bit bland. I think I will add a half teaspoon of red pepper to the next batch."
"I made them again today for the third time. Hubby loves them, had to chase him out of the kitchen before he ate them all!Ranie"
