This is a baked bun instead of the steamed. The Chinese BBQ pork buns are very popular. This version is the same but I baked it. The buns are very soft and moist and also like cotton. So nice and simple to make. I do not eat pork much. To do this recipe I used pork as I got so many requests. I boiled the pork for easy cooking. If you are not a pork lover you can use chicken or any other kind of a meat with the same dough mixture.
