NOTE: these buns are cooked in bamboo steamers which are available in Chinese and specialty gourmet cookware stores. The round steamers can be pruchased in various sizes separately or in sets of two of three tiers. For cooking, the covered steamer(s) is (are) placed over boiling water in a wok or large saucepan. The above is quoted directly from a section connected to the recipe. This is my own note. I do not like the flavor that a bamboo steamer imparts to recipes; therefore, I bought an aluminum Chinese steamer. 1. Combine hoi sin sauce, oyster sauce, soy sauce and sesame oil. Chop
pork and onions finely. 2. Heat vegetable oil in wok or fry pan over high heat. Stir-fry ginger
1 minute. Stir in hoi sin mixture. Cook and stir two minutes. Combine
1/2 cup of the water and the constarch. Blend into hoi sin mixture. Cook and stir until liquid boils. Reduce heat to medium and simmer
2 minutes. Stir in pork and onions. Remove from heat. Cool completely.
3. Combine flour, baking powder and salt in large bowl. Cut or rub in
3/4 cup of the water and the vinegar. Mix water-vinegar into flour until dough sticks together. Shape dough into ball. Knead on lightly floured surface
6 or 8 times. Cover with plastic wrap and let stand 20 minutes.
4 or 5 more times. Divide dough into 12 equal portions. Shape each portions into a smooth ball.
4. Roll each ball of dough on lightly floured surface into a circle
5. Cut waxed paper into twelve 5-inch squares. Brush one side of paper
lightly with oil. Place a bun, seam side down, on each square. 6.Place buns with paper in single layer on steamer rack over boiling
20 minutes. Yield:
1 dozen BARBECUED PORK:
