looking for a cha shao shu recipe

Anyone have a cha shao shu or cha shao su recipe? I've poked around the internet some and thru all the chinese cookbooks at my library any can't find one. It is this wonderful small pork sandwich made with a sort of pie crust/flakey dough and BBQ pork.
I believe this is one of the items you'd find in a typical dim sum restaurant. With that in mind, I'd try to find the recipe in dim sum cookbooks
Are you talking about half moon shaped pastry? I believe at our local restaurant they call it char siu so. It seems to me that the filling is extremely similar to the filling of baked and steamed bao. The pastry appears to be puffed pastry which can be store bought. That's my guess.
