Japanese Inspired Steamed Pork Buns

Although we often associate pork in steamed buns with china, it's also a Japanese street food delicacy. If you love pulled pork, you'll instantly be addicted to these delicious portable treats; you can wrap them up and take them to work, or serve them fresh and hot out of the steamer at a party. You can make them any size too, larger buns are good for family meals, and smaller buns will make cute cocktail canapes!

Japanese Inspired Steamed Pork Buns

Method

For the Steamed Buns:

  • 300g Plain Flour
  • 2 tsp Sugar
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 1 Tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 Tsp Instant Yeast
  • 1 Tbsp Vegetable Oil
  • 150ml Water

For the Filling:

  • 2-3 Shiitake Mushrooms
  • 50ml Water
  • 1 Chopped Spring Onion
  • Salt and Pepper to Taste
  • 1 lb Ground Pork
  • 1 Tsp Ground Ginger
  • 1 Tsp Ground Garlic
  • 1 Tsp Ground Chili
  • 1 Tsp Mirin

Method

  • To make the dough add all the dry ingredients to a bowl and mix together, then add the water slowly whilst mixing.
  • Knead the dough until it forms into a soft ball.
  • Knead for 15-20 further minutes, then leave to rest in a warm place in a bowl to rise.
  • In a large bowl, mix together all the filling ingredients and knead together to mix well.
  • When the dough is ready split it into 10 even pieces.
  • Flatten each dough ball into a pizza base shape, then fill with 1-2 Tbsp of the pork mix. Fold and twist the dough over to form a bun.
  • When complete with all the buns, place in a steamer for 10 minutes, but adjust the timing for the size of your buns.
  • Enjoy!
