How to make chinese steamed pork buns

This is a simple recipe that you can make at home.

Dough Ingredients:

  • 2 and 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup warm water
  • 1 and 1/2 tsp yeast
  • 2 tbsp grapeseed oil or you can substitute it with canola oil
  • 3 tbsp instant dry milk powder
  • 4 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder

Filling ingredients:

  • 1/2 pound ground pork (or meat of your choice)
  • 1/2 cup cabbage (chopped)
  • 1/2 cup green onion (chopped)
  • 1 tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 slice tofu (optional, but I suggest you use it because it makes the pork moist)
  • 1 chinese sausage (optional, sliced into small pieces)
  • hard boiled eggs (optional)
     

Making the dough

  1. Combine the yeast with the warm water, set aside.
  2. Combine all the dry dough ingredients together in a food processor. Blend for 30 seconds.
  3. Mix the oil with the yeast and water mixture.
  4. Open the food processor and pour the liquid into the dry ingredients. Process for 2 minutes.
  5. Remove the dough and let rise in a warm place for 1 hour or until double in size.

Making the filling

  1. Mix all the ingredients together with your hands.

Putting it together

  1. Divide the dough into 16 pieces (or make bigger buns -  your choice, you just get less buns)
  2. Roll out with rolling pin into 6 inch diameter
  3. Add 1 tbsp meat mixture.
  4. Fold ends of dough into each other like you are building stairs with them. (watch my video)
  5. Place onto cut up squares of parchment paper.
  6. Steam for 12 - 15 minutes depending on the size of the bun.

How come when I steam my bun, sometimes the bottom of the bun turns out kinda wet? It doesn't fully steam like the top. What am I doing wrong??

Can I just use 3/4 c of milk instead of water or powdered milk?

I love the recipie!!!! It taste so yummy!!!! But I didn't know y my turned out brow...was it the veggie oil I used instead of the oil u used??

What happens if I don't use yeast ? Will anything happen ?

If I don't have a mixer, can I just mix it by hand?
