Best way to reheat cheong fun, leftover from dim sum?

I had some beef rice noodle rolls at a dim sum place yesterday, and took some of it home with me. I'm hoping to heat it up for lunch...anyone got tips? It has a fair amount of filling, and was topped w/ the sweet soy sauce previously. I am thinking steaming might be best? But could also use microwave or something else.

Any experience with this?

  1. Steaming is best but you have to be careful not to over steam or it disintegrates when you pick it up. Microwave is okay too, but cover it so it doesn't dry out.

    1. My family has always put it on a glass pie plate, then put that onto a steaming rack (which for us was a small, flat round wire rack about the size of a cake pan). This way, you don't have to transfer the noodles to/from the steamer basket, plus the sauce stays put. We use this method for all leftover steamed dim sum. The baked stuff is either briefly microwaved or eaten at room temp.

      1. The Microwave has always worked well for Rice Noodles

        1. Thanks everyone. I ended up putting the noodles in a bowl, and then putting the whole bowl in the steamer. I steamed until it was just heated through, so it held up pretty well.
