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.

After steaming, the surface looks shiny.

I made some with holes (back tray) and some without the holes (front tray).

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.

Bon appetit!


I love steam buns, looking forward to the lumpia

Haha! Yes, the lumpia will follow. I've been attempting to post on it but haven't been able to just yet. Hopefully soon though.

I wish I were at the potluck. Those buns look so pillowy soft and I really like the idea of the individual soy based sauce. YUMMY!

Thanks so much @loveself! Well, come on over and we can make them and eat them too! =D

Mmmmmm mmmmmm mmmmmmm! That siopao and lumpia combo looks muy delicioso, tita! Nice touch on the delivery system for the sauce. People could already get a taste of it even before their first bite.
