They’re perfect for a lunchtime snack, a dinner party appetizer, or as an entree at a restaurant.
The basic recipe for making Japanese pork bun is simple: Add pork meat and cook it until tender.
You can use ground beef or veal or pork shoulder for a thicker bun, but we prefer ground pork.
You’ll need: 2 tablespoons soy sauce, 2 tablespoons mirin, 1 teaspoon sesame oil, 1 tablespoon cornstarch, and 1 tablespoon water.
To prepare the meat: Mix the soy sauce with the mirin.
Stir in the cornstech and water.
Add the pork meat to the mixture.
Heat the soy and mirin mixture and let it cook for about five minutes.
Add cornstich and cook for another five minutes until it starts to foam up.
Taste the pork and add more water if needed.
Add more water as needed, and cook until the meat is cooked through.
Serve the pork bun with a side of rice.
Recipe Notes For thicker pork bons: For thicker meat, add 2 tablespoons cornstitch or sesame seed to the pork mixture.
For thinner meat, use the soy mix, cornstix, or sicciutto.
