Pillowy Tangzhong baked buns with Chinese Barbecue Flavored Pork as filling.

Pillow soft baked buns with Chinese BBQ pork-Char Siu Bao.
If you ever tasted Char Siu, you will love the well-balanced savory taste. Char Siu pork is an important ingredient for many other recipes including Egg Foo Yong and steamed char siu bao.
The bun recipe adopts a water-roux method, which gives them a pillow soft texture even after reheating. Nowadays, the water roux proofing method has become quite popular with Chinese housewives, including me. For the char siu pork part, some Cantonese Chinese restaurants might offer sliced char siu pork or you can try to make some at home. For steamed bbq pork buns, please check Chinese BBQ pork buns. That’s another version you cannot miss.
