Char Siu Bao (Pork Buns)

Char Siu Bao (Pork Buns)
20th May 2012By KatePhotography by Adam When I was living in Japan I used to buy these buns from the seven eleven below my apartment. In true Japanese style in addition to the traditional Chinese fillings they came in all sorts of kooky flavours like pizza, cheese & curry and chicken and mayonnaise. Along with a can of hot coffee they were a most reliable cure after a night out clubbing in Ropponggi. On a more recent trip to Sydney, my two year old daughter took great delight in watching highly skilled chefs throw hand stretched noodles around the kitchen and produce baskets of gorgeously delicious steamed buns formed intricately into the shape of little pink pigs! “These buns are deliciously light and fluffy and can be filled with just about anything. “We purchased the BBQ pork (char siu) from an Asian take-out place, which made the filling really quick and easy to make. Makes 16 Buns Filling Heat oil in pan, sauté onion for 2 minutes.

I’m eating some blueberry yogurt pretzels (which are oh-so awesome… but would be even awesomer if they were really coated in yogurt and not white chocolate disguised as yogurt) and drinking a san pellgrino aranciata that is spiked with um… vodka, malibu and tequila. With those pretty perfectly square ice cubes. I know. I just couldn’t decide! I just kept adding things to the soda until I got a taste that I liked.

Braided Spaghetti Bread We are carb lovers at our house, so when I saw the Braided Spaghetti Bread recipe in the Rhodes Home Baked Family Favorites with frozen dough cookbook I knew we would love it. This is a really simple recipe; it just takes a little planning for thawing the dough. It will take 2-3 hours for the bread loaf to thaw to room temperature or 1-2 hours for the rolls to thaw to room temperature.

Siu Mai 31st May 2012By KurtPhotography by Adam These little bite-sized morsels are my absolute favourite item from the yum char menu. I quite often meet my wife and her family for a yum char lunch during the week. It makes a nice little break from my working day, and even better the restaurant is right across the road from the office. Three things always happen; we order way too much food, we eat all of it (even if our sides are splitting), then we quietly make our way back to work for a little nap. Well not quite a nap, but a very slow couple of hours! Life-Changing Loaf It took me a long time to settle on the title for this post. Why? Because it’s quite a statement to suggest that a humble loaf of bread will change your life. I am willing to be so bold. Brown Butter Double Fudge Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cookies Little bit of a mouthful there. But it’s like a cookie on top of another cookie! Yeah. Like total dirty cookie on cookie action. Except these ones down below wanted to try a few different positions. I dunno… they’re all mixed up.

Baked Potato Grilled Cheese Behold my latest creation…THE BAKED POTATO GRILLED CHEESE! After the glory that was the Brocolli & Cheddar Soup Grilled Cheese , I began racking my brain for what other wonderful things I could deconstruct into grilled cheese format. Soon enough I had envisioned this piece of grilled cheese heaven! I mean how can you go wrong with fried potatoes, bacon, cheese, sour cream and chives all made into a melty grilled cheese? Pizza Cake How do you make bread even better? You stuff it with pepperoni and cheese. Then, you bake it in a bundt pan that allows you to pull off little chunks and dip them in pizza sauce.

Buffalo Chicken Rolls I’m thinking we’re very comfortable together at this point, me and you. You and me. At best, we’re virtual soul mates bonded through food and cooking. At worst, we’re in a one-sided pen pal relationship and you’re not keeping up your end of the bargain. I’m tired of paying for postage when you never write back. But really, it’s mostly good, isn’t it? Cauliflower Pizza Crust with Roasted Vegetables and Goat Cheese - Domesticate ME! Like most normal humans, I love pizza. As a small child, my pizza fetish (coupled with my grilled cheese addiction) led to such high cholesterol levels that my pediatrician actually forced my parents to limit my consumption. In order to avoid a very tiny grave, I was only allowed to eat pizza every other week for an entire year. Needless to say, 1993 sucked. For the record, my cholesterol levels are now perfect (thank you very much), and pizza remains my favorite food.
