What’s soft, pillowy, delicious and you can probably eat five of these for breakfast? No, not my nephew, char siu baos! A dim sum staple, these are hot and steamy buns filled with savoury barbecue pork filling. I remember my mom and grandmothers making by the hundreds for my sisters and I when we were young – Ok, maybe not hundreds, but by the “fifties”?. They would often spend an entire afternoon on a bao making blitz cooking up filling and filling up discs of rolled out dough then freezing them. These lasted us for weeks and were often the snack of choice that greeted us after school. Here’s an adapted version of our family recipe.
