Pork Buns & Dumplings

I made up my own recipe for the dough for my pork buns this time. This was my best dough yet for baozi/ steamed buns! And yes, I will share my recipe. Next time I think I will food process my filling so that there are not chunks, and roll it into meat balls before forming dough balls around it.

Baozi Dough:

1 Cup Warm Water
2 Tsp Bread Machine Yeast
3 TB Granulated Sugar
2 3/4 Cup Bread Flour
1 Tsp Salt
1 TB Oil

1. Combine first three ingredients until frothy, about two minutes.
2. Add the rest of the ingredients.
3. Use the dough setting on your bread machine.

Pizza Baozi

I made my first attempt at pizza baozi (Italian Chinese fusion cooking)! They turned out delicious. They had a real Italian flavor, but not quite pizza. If I make them again sometime, and want them to taste more like pizza I will add more cheese, more tomatoes, and I will use pepperoni instead of ground beef.

I only had 1 cup of self-rising flour so I added some all-purpose flour, yeast, sugar, and warm water to my usual recipe.

Pizza Baozi:


1 Cup Self-Rising Flour
2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
2/3 Tsp. Yeast
1 Cup Warm Water
2/3 Tsp. Salt
3 Tsp. Brown Sugar


1 lb. Ground Beef
1 Onion
1/2 Green Bell Pepper
1/2 Yellow Squash
1 Roma Tomato
2 Tsp. Minced Garlic
3 TB Mozzarella Cheese
1 TB Parmesan Cheese
1 Tsp. Red Pepper Flakes
2 Tsp Italian Seasoning
2 Tsp. Basil
2 Tsp. Salt

Baby Approved Hot Pumpkin Lava Bomb Baozi

Yes, my sweet baby girl Shastya did quality control on the pumpkin filling for these luscious baozi. Daddy came home early today because of a snow day/ state of emergency in South Carolina which consisted of perhaps 1 inch of snow so I decided to make an early supper. Shastya as usual enjoyed the cooking show from her little baby chair in the kitchen.

Pumpkin Baozi:

1 Cup Room Temp Water
3 Cups Self-Rising Flour

1 Can Pumpkin
1 Tb Molasses
1 Tsp Cinnamon

1. Combine water and flour in bread machine canister. Hit dough setting.
2. Stir pumpkin, molasses, and cinnamon together in small bowl.
3. Divide dough into eight pieces. Fill with Pumpkin filling.
4. Steam for 20 minutes on low heat after water has been brought to a boil.

Spicy Noodle Baozi!

I made my favorite flavor of baozi for dinner tonight. That flavor was spicy noodle baozi. This was my first time coming up with a recipe for and making this type. They didn't turn out bad.

Spicy Noodle Baozi:

1 cup Water
2 3/4 cups Self-Rising Flour

3 cups Water
1/3 pkg. Rice Noodles
3 tsp. Red Pepper Flakes
4 Tb Soy Sauce
1/4 tsp. Chopped Garlic

First, I put the first two ingredients in the bread machine on the dough cycle.

Second, I boiled some water and red pepper flakes to soften them. I then added the noodles and a little soy sauce and garlic. When the noodles were ready I drained them and then added some more soy sauce to them.

Third, I divided the dough into eight sections, and stuffed those with spicy noodles. I steamed these in two batches for around twenty minutes each on low heat.

Steamed Bread With Molasses Sweetened Red Bean Paste Filling

Anthony and I ate a variety of steamed breads this past summer in Nanjing, China. Red bean was Anthony's favorite flavor. This evening I created my own recipe for steamed bread with red bean paste filling. 

I just used the dough setting on my bread machine to make the dough. Feel free to refer to some of my other posts about steamed breads for more info about making them: Vegetable Filled Steamed BreadChinese Dumplings And Baozi, and Anthony's Favorite Chinese Food: Baozi!

For my filling, I drained and mashed a can of red beans. I added granulated sugar and then molasses. The molasses improved the color, texture, and taste of my filling. Not to mention, it was fun to throw in an American southern ingredient.

Steamed Bread With Molasses Sweetened Red Bean Paste Filling:

1 cup Water
2 3/4 cups Self-Rising Flour

1 can of Red Beans
2 1/2 Tb Granulated Sugar
2 1/2 Tb Molasses

Vegetable Filled Steamed Bread

Today I decided to try a few new things while making baozi / steamed bread. First, instead of making them with meat inside like I had done previously, I used vegetables. Second, instead of using self-rising flour, I used regular flour and yeast. Third, instead of mixing and kneading the dough by hand, I used my bread machine. The vegetable filled steamed breads turned out great! Until another time, I think I will try fresh spinach instead of canned. The canned spinach supplied a mushy texture instead of a crunchy or fibrous one.


1 tsp. Yeast
1 c. Warm Water
2 1/2 c. Flour
1Tb Oil
1/2 tsp. Salt


1 can Spinach (drained)
1/2 Onion
Red Pepper Flakes
Balsamic Vinegar
