Chinese BBQ Pork in Steamed Bun

After Cyclone Marcia hitting us making a big mess, Autumn is here! My little niece and nephew from Malaysia were overjoyed looking at the flood water and brown ocean as one of the highlight of their Aussie trip after staying at home for two days due to the bad weather. Our home became instantly so quiet after the visitors gone home. I am sure my little niece and nephew would have grown so much when I see them next time!

People were crowding at the street stall selling this bun at one of the night market I went to recently. Most of the people were enquiring rather than purchasing it. Maybe this is something new for them, a bit like a hamburger but not quite. The Chinese bun is steamed rather than baked. I actually like it more than the BBQ pork buns you get at Yum Cha. There is more pork and extra sauce and the vegetable making it a healthier option. You can substitute Chinese BBQ pork with Chinese roast duck for this recipe.
