Get Creative with Chinese Steamed Bun Dough

Get Creative with Chinese Steamed Bun Dough

Basically, there isn’t anything that’s more tender
than Chinese Steamed Bun Dough. Steamed Buns are one of
my favorite things to eat. What I love about Bao is
it translates a wrapper. It’s not just a hunk of bread. It’s like a little pocket,
like a little cloud. You can fill it
with Pork Belly Duck and they’re super easy to make,
great to have with your friends and family, and it’s
great to fill with all of your favorite goodies. We are inspired to
pursue this recipe from David Chang at Momofuku. We took his recipe,
tweaked it a little bit, and we’re going to show you
three ways that you can use it. [MUSIC PLAYING] For the full in-depth recipe,

  57. question: wouldnt the bamboo steamer burn from direct contact with the hot pot? ive never used it before but from other asian cooking videos with the steamer, they either use an adapter or have it in contact with water (using a big pan)

  58. There's 2 meanings in bao. Bread is actually called bao; bao is also used as a verb: "to wrap" or "wrap." So he's not wrong but he's also not right.

  99. Sometimes when I makes Buns, they get a bit discoloured (almost looking like they are wet, not bouncy and light/white looking. Othertimes this do not happen in the same extent. Does anyone have a clue why? I use a bambo steamer, over boiling water. Water is boiling pretty hard, but it should not be touching the steamer and therefore making the buns "wet".

    Anyone got a tip for me?:)

  100. It looks really yummy my friend 😋😋😋👍👍👍
