Char Siu Bau Recipe

Char Siu Bau Recipes

Ingredients :

1 tsp oil

250g barbecue pork (char siu), diced

3 tsp Shaoxing rice wine

1 tsp roasted sesame oil

2 tbsp oyster sauce

2 tsp light soy sauce

3 tsp sugar

1 quantity basic yeast dough

chili sauce

Method :

Heat the oil in a wok. Add the pork, rice wine, sesame oil, oyster sauce, soy sauce and sugar and cook for 1 minute. Leave to cool. Divide the dough into 12 or 24 portions, depending on how large you want your buns to be, and cover with a tea towel. Working with one portion at a time, press the dough into circles with the edges thinner than the center.

Place 1 teaspoon of filling on the dough for a small bun or 3 teaspoons for a large bun. Draw the sides in to enclose the filling. Pinch the top together and put each bun on a square of greaseproof paper. When you get more proficient at making these, you may be able to get more filling into the buns, which will make them less doughy. Make sure that you seal them properly. The buns can also be turned over, then cooked the other way up so they look like round balls.

Place the buns well apart in three steamers. Cover and steam over simmering water in a wok, reversing the steamers halfway through, for 15 minutes, or until the buns are well risen and a skewer inserted into the center comes out hot. Serve with chili sauce.

Makes 12 large or 24 small
