Steamed Pork Buns
The Chinese make these steamed dumplings from yeast dough as part of a collection of steamed and fried delicacies known as dim sum. Here, the dough surrounds the filling, then gets pinched and twisted to form a pouch. Make the filling while the dough rises, and make the dipping sauce while the filling marinates. The steamer is lined with lettuce leaves to keep the dough from sticking.
