Took a break from two sewing projects to be the one woman camera crew for my daughter as she made these little delights. What are they? Well I'm so glad you asked!
The translation is 'Little Basket Bun' I am told. They are little baskets of yum! Inside a small piece of dough rolled in a thin circle is a mixture of pork, and several flavoring ingredients like ginger, green onion, and soy sauce, along with a broth that has been thickened with a special ingredient. When steamed, the thickened broth makes soup! So it's like a little basket of soup, with pork in the center, how cool is that??!
These were hands down the best Chinese food item I have ever eaten. We invited friends over and had these for dinner.
Lauren made these for her Chinese Class, as the students were assigned to make an authentic Chinese dish. I'm pretty darn sure she aced this assignment!
