Wash down these delicious pork buns with this traditional pairing.
Dissolve yeast in warm water, add flour and work into a dough. Set aside to rest for approx. 2 hrs.
Finely slice the scallions and chop the ginger. In another mixing bowl, add scallions and ginger to the pork along with salt, white pepper, five-spice powder, light soy sauce, dark soy sauce, oyster sauce and sesame oil. If needed, add a little water to loosen the mixture. Stir well to combine and set aside.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Roll the dough into a log shape and cut into 15 equal portions. Dust the work surface with flour, then use a rolling pin to roll out the pieces of dough into equal-sized circles, rotating the dough as you roll it to ensure an even thickness. Place a spoonful of the pork filling in the center of each dough circle and gently pull and pinch the edges together to make a tight seal. Set aside to rise for 20 min.
Transfer buns to a steam basket set over boiling water and steam for approx. 15 min. Allow to cool and enjoy!
