CHA SIU BAO - STEAMED BBQ PORK BUNS

CHA SIU BAO - STEAMED BBQ PORK BUNS by Linda Tay Esposito

The char siu bao is a dimsum staple. Sweet, juicy bits of Chinese bbq pork oozing out of the soft, sweet bun. The secret to creating that char siu bao taste is to use dried onions (McCormicks).

BASIC YEAST DOUGH FOR STEAMED BUNS

BASIC YEAST DOUGH FOR STEAMED BUNS by Linda Tay Esposito

This is a recipe for the dough of the fluffy white skins of the char siu bao and the shanghai cabbage buns.

Sun-Dried Tomato Spread

Sun-Dried Tomato Spread by A.L. Wiebe

This is an extremely tasty appetizer spread, that I borrowed from Terry Thomson's "Cajun and Creole Cooking" book.
