Chinese beef buns, also known as “baozi” or “bao” in Mandarin, are a popular Chinese steamed bun that is typically filled with savory beef filling. The buns are made from a yeast-based dough that is steamed to perfection, resulting in a soft and fluffy texture.
The beef filling for the buns is usually made with ground beef, onions, garlic, and a variety of seasonings such as soy sauce, hoisin sauce, and sesame oil. Some variations may also include vegetables such as carrots, cabbage, or mushrooms. The filling is cooked until it is tender and flavorful before being stuffed into the buns.
To prepare the beef buns, the dough is first rolled out into small circles, and then the beef filling is placed in the center. The dough is then pinched together to seal the filling inside, and the buns are steamed until they are cooked through.
Chinese beef buns are a popular street food in China and can also be found in Chinese restaurants and grocery stores around the world. They are often served as a snack or light meal and can be eaten alone or with a dipping sauce.
