  • 1 quantity basic bun mix


  • 2 teaspoons oil
  • 400 g (12 ¾ oz) Chinese barbecue pork, diced
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 2 shallots, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • ½ cup (4 fl oz) chicken stock
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornflour (cornstarch)
  • 2 tablespoons water


1 To make filling, place oil in a hot wok. Add pork, ginger and shallots and stir fry for 2 minutes. Add soy sauce, oyster sauce, stock and sugar to wok.

2 Blend cornflour (cornstarch) and water until smooth and add to wok, stirring until mixture is very thick. Allow to cool.

3 Divide dough into 24 pieces and flatten each piece in the palm of your hand. Place a spoonful of filling in the centre of each and press dough edges together to form a bun.

4 Put a small piece of plain paper under each bun. Leave buns to rise for 10 minutes, and then arrange them in a bamboo steamer* leaving room for them to expand.

5 Place steamer over a wok of rapidly boiling water, cover and steam for 12 minutes without lifting the lid. Serve.
