Vietnamese Pyramid Dumplings (Banh Gio)

Vietnamese Pyramid Dumpling (Banh Gio) is very common breakfast in Northern Vietnam. Banh Gio directly translates to “pork cake” which unfortunately doesn’t sound too appetizing but don’t let the name fool you. It is a tasty pyramid-shaped rice dumpling filled with ground pork, onions, minced Woodear mushroom and sometimes quail eggs for a heartier version. Everything is wrapped together in a banana leaf then steamed.

Dim Sum: Chinese Soup Dumpling (Xiao Long Bao)

Xiao Long Bao, also known XLB for short or Little Dragon Buns for a literal translation, are steamed dumplings made of ground pork and pork broth. The common question with XLB is how they get the broth inside the dumpling. The answer fascinated me and many others. To get the broth inside the dumpling, the pork broth is made ahead of time from slowly simmering pork bones with skin on them. The broth is then chilled and the gelatin from the pork skins solidifies the pork broth. It is cubed up then mixed together with the ground pork filling. The filling is encased into a thin flour wrapper and then steamed in a bamboo basket.
