|Roast Pork Buns|
2 teaspoon sugar mixed with two teaspoons active dry yeast
3 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup bread flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 Tablespoon corn oil
1 Tablespoon sesame oil
1/2 pound roast pork, diced
1 Tablespoon oyster sauce
1 Tablespoon thin soy sauce
1 Tablespoon sugar
16 three-inch squares of parchment paper
1. For the dough, mix sugar-yeast mixture with one cup warm water. Set this aside for ten minutes.
2, add both flours, the corn oil, and the baking powder and knead for five minutes or until no longer sticky. Then put it in a sesame oiled bowl, cover, and set aside for three hours. Reserve any extra sesame oil and rub it on the parchment squares.
3. Divide dough into sixteen portions, and flatten each one, and place on an oiled square of parchment paper.
4. Mix roast pork, oyster and soy sauces, and the tablespoon of sugar, and put one heaping teaspoonful on each piece of dough.
Wet the edges of the dough and seal by pinching them together, then turn over so sealed side is on the paper and the top looks somewhat rounded.
5. Put buns on a steamer rack, spacing then two to three inches apart. Place rack aver actively steaming water, cover, and steam for eighteen minutes, remove, and serve.
