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). Please look up the Basic Yeast Dough for Steamed Buns that accompanies this recipe. If you don't have steamer baskets, use a wok…

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. It's truly versatile -- you can use the same dough and fill it with sweetened mashed red beans or lotus seeds for a dessert treat.

Maid Rite and Tendermaid Hamburgers At Home

Maid Rite and Tendermaid Hamburgers At Home by Terry

The secret to a Maid Rite and/or Tendermaid style loose burger Hamburger is that the beef is steamed and not fried, and this does make all the difference.
