How to make 猪肉包子, Chinese steamed pork buns.

Posted on Updated on

Today my girlfriend Maggie and I did an authentic Chinese recipe for 猪肉包子, or pork steamed buns. If you recognize the name, baozi, the first article on this blog was written about niurou baozi from the streets. We decided to make some at home, but with pork.

A bunch of our baozi, before we steamed them!


The recipe was quite a bit of work, but the end result was well worth it. Here is the recipe:


  • 1 large leek (chopped)
  • 1 kilogram ground pork (You can use less, this is enough for about 30 baozi
  • Salt (About 1 tsp)
  • Soy sauce (2 cap fulls)
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 3 cups of flour
  • 1 cup of water

That is everything for the baozi, but we also made a nice pungent dipping sauce to go with it which is very easy to make and only has 3 ingredients:

  • 2 pieces of garlic chopped
  • Soy sauce
  • White vinegar (1 tsp)
