How to Make Steamed Char Siew Pao (Thermomix)

In episode 2 of our weekly Live broadcast, Zona and I made steamed buns. Since I don’t eat pork, I made mine with a chicken filling. Zona used BBQ pork with her batch.

Recipe for the dough and the filling as follows (you can substitute the chicken mince with diced BBQ pork)

  • 400g low gluten flour (or superfine/HK/pao flour)

  1. Mix all the ingredients together 5 sec / speed 6.
  2. Knead for 2 mins.
  3. Allow dough to rest for 30 mins before rolling into small balls to shape.

Jackie M’s Chicken Filling –
