Introduction: Steamed Pork Buns
Steamed pork buns are by far my favorite Chinese food! To sum it up, its basically vegetables and pork wrapped inside a piece of dough and then steamed. Lets get started!
Step 1: The Ingredients
1/2 lb. of ground pork, 1 onion, 3 green onion stocks, 2 carrots, 1 can of bamboo shoots, 1 zucchini, Soy sauce, Rice vinegar, Sesame oil, Garlic, Black pepper, Salt, Sugar, Flour, Yeast Lets get cooking!
Step 2: The Dough
For the dough take 1 cup of warm water and add to it, 2tsp. Yeast. 1/2 tsp. salt, 1tsp. Sugar, 2 T of oil. Now stir to mix all ingredients. Now add 3 cups if flour and stir till it forms a ball. Kneed the dough for 2 min. Then cover and let raise pushing it down every thirty min for1.5 hrs.
Step 3: Vegetables
Cut 1/2 onion, zucchini, carrot, bamboo shoots, and green onion, into small pieces. Now oil a pan and put all veggies in at once. Stir ever so often till the onion in the mixture becomes translucent. Now take out put a teaspoon of soy sauce in and set aside.
Step 4: The Pork
Put the pork in a bowl add 2 cloves if minced garlic, 1 teaspoon on soy sauce and 1 teaspoon of sesame seed oil. Mix with your hands. Oil a pan and put your pork in. Stir to create small pieces. Let sit till it turns a light brown color. Now mix the pork with the veggies. Set aside.
Step 5: Assembly
Take your dough and divide it into three pieces. Take one piece and roll it out to be 1/4" thick. Find a round shape and use to cut the dough.( I used a can lid) now cup the dough and put a spoon full of filling in. Create a ball by folding the edges into each other. Now put the buns in a steamer and steam for 20 min.
Step 6: Sauce
Cut a1/2 onion and put in a bowl. Pour 1/2 cup of soy sauce on top then put 1/4 cup of rice vinegar in and stir.
