Mini Steamed Pork Buns
I love steamed pork buns (also known as bao). The filling is flavorful and the bun is soft and fluffy.
I had a potluck to attend so I thought it would be a great idea to make some. Since they were going to be served as appetizers, I made mini ones.
The steamed buns were served with individually-portioned soy-based sauce and plated on shiso leaves.
Here's a pork-filled mini bun prior to steaming. Notice the flour on the exterior.
More formed buns
After steaming, the surface looks shiny.
I made some with holes (back tray) and some without the holes (front tray).
A closer look at the mini buns without a hole ...
... and with a hole on top
Since I was in charge of the appetizers, I thought I'd also make some lumpia. Will post on this next time.
I would love to hear from you, so please drop me a line below. That's all for now.
