Was very good. I used chicken stock instead of water and I put whole onions and garlic cloves in the steamer basket to help flavor the meat. I served it withe roasted vegetables and rice. Tasted...

I thought this was pretty good. I omitted the salt completely and just added a pinch of it while it was steaming. What is the point of rubbing it in salt and rinsing, anyway??

delicious! after reading another review, i was worried that this would be too salty, so i only used 1 1/2 tablespoons of sea salt. very yummy!
