Momofuku Steamed Buns
I've hardly had steamed buns, so it was really fun to make these because I wasn't sure how they were supposed to turn out! Even when they had finished steaming I wasn't sure they were done.
The recipe made a dough that was very easy (not sticky) work with. Dividing the dough into 50 different pieces was not hard because the dough was so easy to handle. I used butter instead of rendered pork fat so Niall could eat as many as he liked.
And rolling out the buns wasn't too hard either.
I tried steaming them in a steamer and on the stove. The stove steamer worked much better! We ended up steaming, cooling and freezing most of the buns.
