Update 2/6/2018: Costco has a coupon for $4.00 off a box of Bibigo Steamed Dumplings that is valid 2/8/18 to 3/4/18. There isn't a limit so stock up now. This is a great deal!
In the past, I could only enjoy delicious steamed dumplings at restaurants because it is one of those foods that I would never attempt to make at home. Now I can enjoy steamed dumplings whenever I want without going to a restaurant. My secret? Bibigo's steamed chicken and vegetable dumplings from Costco. The tender dumplings are filled with savory chicken, cabbage, onions and mushrooms. While they are fully cooked and stored in the freezer, the unique tray packaging allows the dumplings to steam while heating in the microwave. They are ready in a total of 3 minutes, (2 minutes to heat and 1 minute to rest). There are six dumplings to a tray and the box contains six trays. You get 36 dumplings for $11. 99! One tray of 6 is considered a serving. The box also includes 6 packets of dipping sauce. The sauce is not just a packet of soy sauce. It is on the sweet side, but perfectly compliments the dumplings. The dumplings are pinched together at the top instead of being crimped on the side like a pot sticker. Bibigo claims this Korean style of dumpling "allows for a larger filling to wrapper ratio." All I know is that they are GOOD!
The dumplings can be used as a snack, an appetizer or a light meal. Make a more ample meal out of it by adding a chopped Asian salad. The box I bought had a freezer life of 9 plus months. These are great to have in the freezer at work for those days when you have to work through lunch. All you need is a microwave because you can enjoy them straight out of the tray. Watch out for lunch thieves though, the dumplings won't last long!
