Cattle Dog Cookin’ – Char Siu Bao (BBQ Pork Buns)

The first episode in the Cattle Dog Cookin’ series! Me and Iroh made char siu bao and it was bomb. This recipe is in no way traditional, just my take on a classic and how I like to enjoy it.

2 teaspoon active dry yeast
¾ cup warm water
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup cornstarch

For the BBQ pork:
3 cloves of garlic
2 tablespoons of ketchup
3 tablespoons hoisin sauce
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
