Piggy Pork Steamed Buns




Another piggy-themed food :)! I was inspired to make piggy-shaped pork steamed buns after I saw Kristy's cute mantou buns a few days ago. The recipe itself is adapted from Maangchi's savoury Jjinppang mandu, because I am not into mantou buns with sweet filling. I thought these sweeties would look rather festive to celebrate my 100th post - after 1 year and 1 month of blogging, post no.100 is not very impressive I know, but hey, juggling between work and blogging is not that easy, so I feel a little bit proud ;).

Ingredients (adapted from Maangchi's site)

Dough

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp yeast
  • 2 tbs oil
  • 3 cups flour
Filling
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped carrot
  • 1 1/2 cup chopped green onions
  • 2 cups mushrooms
  • 400 g pork
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbs oyster sauce
  • 1 tbs minced garlic
  • 1 tbs sesame oil
What to do
  • Check the video from Maangchi below.

The little sweeties before they're steamed. I used red food-colouring for the ears and snouts.




How brutal...! Sorry little piggies, but I cannot resist taking a closer look at what goodies you have inside ;)

  10. More piggies! They're very cute as all the other things you make. Congrats on your 100th post. I look forward to seeing more posts by you. :) Btw, good job on steaming the buns. They look perfect! Sometimes, it's easy to end up with ugly buns b/c water dripped on them while steaming.

  18. I have tried to follow your blog for three times but it is the last one that works, don't know why ha ha. OMG, it is the cutest steamed bun I've ever seen. They will look great in bento box for sure. Btw, I've looked for Shao Xing wine and Chinkiang vinegar to make your Dan Dan Mian but couldn't find them here. I'm also still hesitate about the "halal" hehe. Can I change them with other seasonings? Any suggestions? Thanks :D

  19. Hi
    This is first time I am visiting your blog and believe me that was completely floored by the sheer cuteness of the piglets. Must have tasted great as well.Have started to follow you. If possible please visit my blog too.

  20. @ Tatabonita - You can substitute Shao Xing Wine with normal cooking wine, or even red or white wine. And for the Chinkiang vinegar, it's alright if you omit that from the recipe (it's not going to make such a huge difference in flavour I think). And yeah, I've noticed that the last few days Google Connect had some problems, I couldn't follow some blogs I wanted to follow either. But now I think it's working fine again.
