When I saw the recipe for this yummy pastry buns in Reesekitchen and was so inspired by her siew pao which looks so good, I told myself that I have to try it! So this morning after my morning jog, I went to the market and bought some roasted pork and a can of green beans for the fillings. I followed the recipe exactly but would suggest that you decrease the shortening for the oil dough because I find it too sticky and had to add more flour to make it easier to handle. In the end, I have some extra oil dough left over.
I had also used the sauce that comes with the pork as the seasoning to substitute for the oyster sauce and sugar.
These were really good and flaky! I had 2 for lunch
. These I glaze twice to make them more golden.
I like the layers of flaky pastry of these buns...so crispy and light!
Will definitely make this again! Thanks Reese for the recipe.
