Celebrate Chinese New Year with these filling Steamed Pork Buns that are oh so easy to make.
My dear friend, Tola, gave me this recipe a year ago and I am just now getting around to making it. I had to adjust it a bit for my family’s tastes and for my laziness to drive cross town to the Asian Market.
She uses a ready made mix for the bun dough, but you probably need to get it at a specialty market since I didn’t see it in the Asian Food Aisle of my supermarket. So, I used the recipe in Ming Tsai’s Blue Ginger cookbook. I also couldn’t find the Chinese sausage so I went with some linguisa so I can make some Portuguese Beans with Linguisa another day.
There is no way my husband and son would go for the boiled egg inside these, so I made a few for me with egg, and left them out of the rest.
One word of caution: leave space for them to rise in the streamer. Six will fit nicely in most steamers, until they expand and stick to the sides and each other. Learn from my mistake. Still tasty, but I had to cut them away from the sides and each other. 🙁
