    This is a BIG hit in the family, I made these many times and this is the BEST steam buns I ever made. I add extra brown sugar for the sauce coz I find it a bit salty otherwise it's so good and easy recipe.
    Thank you for sharing the recipe. Smile

    So yummy! The family was very impressed. I made these earlier in the day and put them on a plate in the fridge. They ended up sticking to the plate and all fell apart when I went to transfer them. My tip would be to put flour or baking paper under them!

    These are amazing! I steamed mine on the stove top, I don't think there would be any way you could get them all cooked in one batch in thermomix. The sauce was divine. All devoured by all 3 kids and hubby and myself. Will add this into a regular rotation for our meal planning.

  • Yum yum!  The pork filling is

    Submitted by Fritzoid on 26. June 2016 - 23:24.

    Yum yum!  The pork filling is delicious but I am confused about the "sauce",  I used mince so there was nothing to drain.  Has to use extra cornflour to thicken the meat.  My dough was a little sticky and I need to practice forming the disc - mine were a bit thick.  Overall, just delicious and I am looking forward to making them again!

    Thanks for pointing  this out.. sweet soy is fine.. 70 gm is correct.  Extra was a typo.

  • I would like to know why

    Submitted by wendyroo on 5. May 2016 - 12:11.

    I would like to know why there is 70g soy sauce and then 1 tablespoon of soy sauce. Is the tablespoon suppose to be sweet soy? this is confusing. Please give feed back I and another viewer would like to make these. tmrc_emoticons.)

  • I've made these a couple of

    Submitted by BuddinaBelle on 12. April 2016 - 03:09.

    I've made these a couple of times now as they are so tasty, and I've found its much easier to make filling and let it cool before filling buns.i made it day before and second time just used pork mince, much easier to handle and you can stuff more filling in! They do take a bit longer than recipe says to steam, I did 20-25 mins but they are delicious

    Submitted by wilkiebarkid on 3. April 2016 - 18:16.

    Delicious and just like from take away shops. Needs about 15 minutes steaming time even with boiling water

     The sauce is sooo good. Thank you!

  • Hi - I've noticed a couple of

    Submitted by SunnyDaze on 20. March 2016 - 19:01.

    Hi - I've noticed a couple of errors in the recipe.  It says 70g of soy sauce then further down it says 1 tablespoon of soy sauce.  Not sure if this is meant to say 1 tablespoon of oil - because in step 2 it says "Add oil" - but there is no oil in the ingredients list.

     

    Also, step 3 "Add remaining ingredients"  should be amended to say "Add remaining ingredients EXCEPT the cornflour"  I accidently put the cornflour in at step 3 but it was still ok, although I had to add quite a bit extra cornflour at step 6.  Although the recipe didnt explicitly say - I removed the Star Anise when I drained the pork and did not put it back into the sauce.

     

     

    I made a gluten free option by using Tamari rather than soy sauce and gluten free flour.  I found the dough turned out a bit too sticky so had to add additional flour to the dough and I also only put 30g sugar in it which was sweet enough for me.  It also needed an extra couple of minutes steam time (perhaps because of the gluten free flour).

     

    I'm a beginner thermie user so I found this recipe a little bit time consuming and fiddly (especially as I was making it gluten free) but it turned out as it was supposed to and is quite nice.  I think I will fiddle with the pork sauce a little to make it more to my taste, but will definately make it again and it is quite tasty as is.  I think it will be a much quicker and smoother operation the second time around.
