BBQ Pork Buns (Char Siew Buns)

After having successfully tried making yeasted buns using the "water roux" method which were made into Mini Sliders, I went about making another batch of dough a few weeks later. But this time I decided to add BBQ pork as the filing. BBQ pork buns or "char siew buns" as we normally call them can be found in local bakeries and part of the menu items in any yum cha restaurant.

For the filing, I decided to buy ready made char siew which I then diced into small pieces. I added frozen green peas as well with the meat. To season the filing I referred to a previous recipe for Baked BBQ Pork Buns . After the buns were baked, I glazed them with some maple syrup diluted with a bit of water to give it a glossy look. I must say that the buns were delicious but next time round, I will try to add in more filing.

Yummy, I love char Siew buns! So far have only tried the steamed version, not baked. But I do trust the water roux method, will surely be nice & soft! Thanks for the recipe Jo. :)

I saw a push-cart of BBQ Pork Buns in a dim-sum restaurant yesterday but gave the buns a miss. Taking a second look again today, I am sure I want some now.
