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)
- 1 cup water
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 tsp yeast
- 2 tbs oil
- 3 cups flour
- 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

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 ;)
