    Ms. See's Note:

    This is a steamed bun with a pork filling. I first tasted this in Japan, it warms you up on a cool day. And served with hot mustard and soy sauce it is perfection. I found this recipe by searching on the internet.

      I used to eat these almost every day for lunch when I lived in Japan. I was very excited when I found this recipe. I've made them twice so far and they are glorious. I have had a little trouble making the filling dry enough to not basically melt through the bun before I get it in the steamer. Also, I use less ginger and cabbage than what's recommended here. I really love them with spicy mustard.

      In Thailand this is known as Sala-Pao. They come savory as mentioned and Sweet which is usually a mixture of salted peanuts, coconut and moistened with a little sweetened condensed milk.
      These buns are sold all over the country on the streets and at celebrations off protable carts for 1 baht each or $.05.
      I was in a Korean market and they had them frozen. 6 per package for $8.95 (sigh).
      Nice to be able to make your own...Sawa-di-caup...Chef Jim
