DIRECTIONS

  • Bun:
  • In a custard cup, sprinkle the dry yeast over the 3 tablespoons of warm water and let stand until the yeast is softened.
  • In a small saucepan, heat 11/2 cups water, solid shortening, salt and sugar. Stir until melted. Cool.
  • Combine the softened yeast and shortening mixture in a large bowl.
  • Add flour, 1 cup at a time mixing well after each addition. Knead until dough is stiff. Let rise until double in bulk, about 2 hours.
  • Punch dough down and knead again.
  • Cut into 2 inch balls and stuff with filling, making sure that there is no opening for the filling to fall out.
  • Place on a small square of waxed paper (about 3" X 3"). Let rise for 11/2 to 2 hours.
  • Steam until done, about 15 - 20 minutes. Serve hot.
  • Filling:
  • Pan fry ham, lup chong, bamboo shoots and mushrooms.
  • Add oyster sauce, sugar, soy sauce and red food coloring.
  • Cook until the mixture absorbs the sauce.
  • Add green onions before turning off the flame.
