Steam Bun With Beef/牛肉夾包

I was making braised beef for noodles, but I made kind of too much, and at the end I didn’t feel like to eat it with noodles anymore, so I came up with this idea. This kind of bun is called lotus leaf buns for the shape, there is this famous dish people love to eat it with peking roasted duck.

First of all we will need some braised beef. Here is the link for it:

Of course you can stuff the buns with any kind of meat you like.

Steam the buns in a bamboo steamer for a few minutes, if you don’t have one just steam them over water will be fine too.

I added thin slice cucumber, scallion and cilantro to it too. The other very important ingredient here is hoisin sauce. I didn’t make the buns myself, they are store bought. You can get them from Chinese supermarkets.

Here is pork with hoisin sauce, this dish will be good to stuff inside the buns too.
