Bao? What the fuck is that? Is that jibberish for Dog? Are you trying to be funny or something?

Can't tell if you're snarking or actually serious.



Bao are steamed buns filled with stuff, similar to oversized dumplings. The Chinese are known for them.

You should be more worried by the fact that I actually wasn't honestly certain if you had no clue or not!



Anyway, OP... I don't have a good recipe for Bao, though researching and refining one is something I intend to do someday. I *LOVE* Bao and no, WowBao isn't good Bao... it's passable, like a McDonald's Big Mac is to a real home-grilled burger.

Honestly? I had no clue what the fuck he was talking about until you described what it was.

or you can go to one of the asian supermarkets ( think there's a more than a few in the west suburbs) and get the frozen siopao (what my people call it)... then pop them into the microwave whenever you want.

you're sick!!! :P just kidding.

then all you need is the recipe for the bun part

*

Siopao Dough:
o Mix flour, salt and baking powder in a medium bowl, set aside.
o In another bowl dissolve yeast in lukewarm water then add 1 cup of the flour mixture.
o Mix thoroughly.
o Cover with a cloth and let rise 1 hour.
o Meanwhile, dissolve the white sugar in the boiling water.
o Stir well then let cool to lukewarm.
o Pour into the yeast mixture, then add the rest of the prepared flour mixture.
o Stir to blend well.
o Grease a large bowl.
o Turn dough out onto a floured board and knead for 3 minutes-you want your dough smooth, not sticky.
o Place ball into bowl, turn once and cover with a damp cloth.
o Let rise 2 hours or until doubled.

#

How to make Siopao:

* Punch down dough and knead on a floured board for 3 to 5 minutes.
* Divide dough and roll each half into a 122 inch log.
* Cut each into 12 pieces, making 24.
* Roll each piece into a ball using your hands then rolling it flat into a 3 inch diameter circle.
* Dust with flour if needed to prevent sticking.
* Place 1 slice of egg into center of dough round, then 1 T. of filling with sauce.
* Gather sides of round, pinch together and twist.
* Place pinched side down on parchment paper and place in steamer.
* Repeat until done.
* Cover with a damp cloth and let rise for 1 hour.
* Steam Siopao for 20 minutes.
* You can freeze cooked Siopao, simply re-steam for 10 minutes.
