Ok so made these and something is most definitely off in this recipe. Tried twice, followed directions perfectly, and.... not good. The dough is not pliable. However...... filling is delicious. Also after giving up I baked the dough and they made great biscuits perfect for strawberry shortcake! LOL HAHAHAHHEHEHOHO Very frustrating experience
looks so good, but I have a Big doubt: Do I need the already barbecued Pork to make the filling with another bbq sauce? because in the video, the pork doesn't look marinated
Love the dough, prefer a slightly sweeter variety of filling, but it is good. I'm a bit annoyed to use only 1/5th of the barbequed pork, and then only 1/3rd of the filling with the dough recipe. If I hadn't liked it, it would be a lot of wasted meat. I used my KitchenAid mixer to make the dough, and that worked out very well.
Perfect results the first time! Just like my favorite Chinese deli in San Francisco. Tried two things that made the filling stage easier - Rolled the dough portions out with a rolling pin instead of hand-shaping, and after the pleating process I wiped the inner edge of the pleats with a moistened finger which helped the final twist hold together better. The video was a great help.
Awesome recipe, they taste just like what you get at the restaurant. It was so easy, the directions and video were excellent, success on my first try too. Will definitely do this recipe again, next time I will try it with chicken. Will definitely share your recipe with my mom-in-law, she loves these baos.
Delicious! These are a little hard to shape, so definitely watch the video. Also, the recipe does make a lot of filling, so there will be extra. So tasty-- perfect with a big bowl of soup.
Made these for dinner tonight and they are excellent! Can not wait to make them again. If you follow the recipe for making the bbq pork,it makes 2 to 3 times more than you need to make the buns. Since we have a lot of meat leftover we may be eating this again in a day or two.
