Cooking by steam is one of the healthier ways to prepare a dish, but to ensure the meats are cooked thoroughly and successfully, there are tips and tricks you should follow.

First, make sure the water is boiling before setting the dish in for steaming; try to resist lifting the lid while the dish is steaming – it is best to use a glass lid for easy viewing of the cooking dish; and have enough water in the wok or pot for steaming. The art of steaming really isn’t that hard to master.
