Preparation of steamed soybeans

The dried beans can be soybeans or black beans, but this time we will introduce how to make steamed soybeans using normal size dried soybeans.

First, transfer the soybeans to a bowl, wash them quickly, and add plenty of water.

Soak in water and put it back overnight (about 8-12 hours) (* Be sure to keep it in the refrigerator when the room temperature rises).

How to make steamed soybeans / Steaming time

Prepare as large a colander as possible according to the size of the pot (I used a bamboo colander underneath, but of course a metal colander is OK).

Spread the soybeans in a colander and wait for the steamer to boil (for flat colanders, spread them evenly, and for round colanders, dent the center a little to make the thickness as uniform as possible).

* If you don’t have a steamer, you can prepare a deep pot and use “steaming plate + colander” or “dish that comes out of the hot water at the bottom of the pot + colander”.

Set the soybeans in the steamer while it is boiling well,Approximately 1 hour with low medium to medium heat with steam boilingSteam to.

If the soybeans are fluffy and cooked, remove them, and if they are still hard, continue steaming them every 2-3 minutes until they are cooked.

After that, remove it from the steamer and remove the rough heat.It lasts 3-4 days for refrigeration and 2-3 months for freezing...

For freezing, it is recommended to put it in a sealed bag such as a zip lock or put it in a storage container such as a tapper to freeze it (it is easy to use because it can be separated moderately even after freezing).

* The decompression method isWhen using it for salads and stir-fries, thaw the desired amount naturally in the it,When using it as a soup, add frozen steamed soybeans directly to the boiling soup.And it’s OK.
