Steamed Barbecue Pork Dumpling

  • 4

I remember having this dumpling at a Chinese buffet once that has since closed down. It was a doughy steamed dumpling, and inside was this delicious, sweet barbecue sauce and (what I assume was) pork inside.

Does anyone know what this is called, or where I can find a recipe?

    1. The redoubtable Lily Ng has a recipe from her own kitchen here:


      1. char siu bao seems like the winner - now that I actually know the name of it, I'm sure I cn find a multitude of recipes and variations

        1. FYI: Cha Siu Bao is available frozen in many places.

          Having noted that I am curious as well about making it at home.
