How To Reheat Bao Buns In The Steamer
This method works well for steaming plain bao buns but not for stuffed ones. This is because the stuffing tends to leak during cooking which makes the buns soggy. So, here’s how to do it:
1) Bring some warm water to boil with your steamer.
2) Take the buns out of the fridge and keep them at room temperature. You can put frozen buns directly in the steamer from the freezer, but I like to let them thaw first.
3) To place the buns in the steamer, lower the heat to medium-high once the water is boiling.
4) Put the steamer lid on by covering it with a dishcloth.
5) Let the filled buns steam for 5-7 minutes for frozen buns and 3-5 minutes for refrigerated buns. Unfilled buns need to be reduced by a couple of minutes for steaming.

How To Store Leftover Bao Buns In The Fridge
Storing Bao or a steamed pork bun in the fridge helps preserve its flavor better than freezing. Here are the steps:
1) Wrap leftover bao buns tightly in plastic wrap or airtight container, so no air gets inside. This way, there won’t be any chance of mold forming. If you don’t want to do this, put them into resealable bags first before putting them in the refrigerator.
2) Put them in the bottom drawer of the refrigerator where the temperature stays cool. You may even place them in the back corner if space allows.
3) If in a very hot climate – Make sure not to open the door too often because opening the door lets out all the cold air, making the room warm again.
What Size Cabbage To Use
For this recipe, I used a small sized head of green cabbage.
As you can see from the picture above, it only reaches about half way up the instant pot.
If you have a larger head of cabbage, here is what you do to adjust the recipe:
- vegetable broth amount: stays the same. There is plenty of broth in this recipe.
- butter: if you have a bigger cabbage head, consider adding another 1-2 tablespoons of butter to add more flavor.
- cook time: stays the same. It will just take a little longer to come to pressure.

I LOVE this recipe. I have always loved this recipe, but now I am even more in love with it because I can make it super quick in my Instant Pot.;When we would grill out as a kid, my mom would always make boiled cabbage to go with it.

Cooking Cabbage In Instant Pot
As I have mentioned, you can cook any vegetable in the instant pot. Whether you want to do instant pot carrots, instant pot broccoli, or even instant pot cauliflower, the instant pot will do an amazing job.
There are two ways for cooking cabbage in Instant Pot, which also applies to any instant pot vegetable:
Instant Pot Boiled Cabbage You cook the cabbage directly in the water in the instant pot inner pot. Imagine that you add water to your inner pot, load it up with cabbage and then pressure cook. But this method is simply a faster version of boiling cabbage on the stovetop.
When you boil cabbage, you lose a lot of its nutrients and it often strips it of flavour and makes it bland. Like when you had cabbage fed to you as a kid and thought not that cabbage mush again!
Though, if you have a lot of cabbage to cook at once, then this can be a great way to feed several people via the instant pot.
Instant Pot Steamed Cabbage In my opinion this is the best option. What you do is use a container to keep the cabbage out of the water. That might be a steamer basket, a trivet or even a spring form pan that is sat on the trivet. You can be imaginative here if you dont have a steamer basket. Or check out our list of the best instant pot steamer baskets.
This method of instant pot steamed cabbage is what we are going to show you in this recipe today.

How To Make Tender Corned Beef
Tough corned beef is not enjoyable at all so you need to know how to make sure that it comes out tender. After all, who wants to eat shoe leather for dinner?
- Brisket corned beef is a tough cut of meat, so cooking it low and slow is a must, especially in the crock pot which is designed to make things at a slow pace.
- Once the meat is cooked then let it rest for about 15 minutes before slicing.
- When the corned beef is done resting, now its time to cut the meat. Cut it against the grain so that the long fibrous strands get broken up. This is very important for the tenderness of the meat.

What Are Different Ways In Reheating Bao Buns
Reheating buns is not difficult as long as you keep some things in mind. First off, don’t reheat them straightaway. Letting them rest first helps lose any excess steam so that they won’t become soggy. Secondly, avoid pouring hot water since this would cause the bread or bun to expand quickly, making it lose shape.;
When To Add The Cabbage
Do not add the cabbage at the beginning of the cooking process when you start the corned beef. If you do, it will cook much faster than the meat and you will have soft, soft, soft cabbage that falls apart, unless you like it that way.
We recommend that you put the cabbage in the pot for the last ½ or even the last ¾ of the cooking, depending on how you want your cabbage to come out.
