Cha Siu Bao aka Chinese BBQ pork buns
There’s various cha siu bao filling recipes online, but here’s one I adapted to suit me! There’s less salt in the recipe because I like using the leftover marinade from roasting cha siu – can’t have any food wastage, esp when it’s the best part!
I use my tang zhong bread recipe for the baos. It makes it nice and fluffy on the inside.
Cha Siu Bao aka Chinese BBQ Pork buns filling
- 2 cups diced cha siu

Stir fry the onion until soft
Add the ingredients for the sauce (sugar, soy sauces, oyster sauce sesame oil)
Stir until it starts bubbling
Add the cha siu marinade/chicken stock and flour

Taste and season as needed. Try not to eat all of it at once!
