I just received my Joyce Chen 2-tier bamboo steamer in the mail and am eager to start cooking with it. Now, I know you can cook “anything” in these steamers, from reading what others have said, but I’d like some guidance. I purchased the paper lines to put in the bottom for easy cleanup, too.
First, I need to know how to make rice in the steamer. My rice cooker just died a few days ago, but from what I've read this will do the job. Any tips?
Second, I don’t cook fish in this apartment, the smell gets everywhere and makes my fiancé ill after awhile, so I need chicken, beef or pork recipes.
Any cooking tips, personal recipes or websites would be greatly appreciated. :)
(I hope this isn’t a duplicate post, I did a search for Bamboo Steamer Recipes and didn’t pull up much. Also, I hope this belongs in “Home Cooking” instead of “Cookware,” it seems like it should to me…)
