I have been craving these for years. YEARS. The last time I had one was during my trip to Chicago.
Not sure why it has taken me this long to satisfy this craving, maybe I was just waiting for a influx of BBQ pork to head my way…
And, (blame it on the hubby) the hubs requested some slow cooker BBQ pulled pork a few days ago, so I had the perfect leftover meal to make.
Nothing like taking good ol’ American BBQ and making something exotic out of the leftovers, right? 😉
These are crazy easy to make, and yes, the kids can help. (Just not with the steaming part.)
And, the taste a-ma-zing. Not like soggy mushy blobs… (like my husband thought they would)
They taste like chewy fluffy pretzel buns with sweet shredded BBQ inside.
Like an albino soft pretzel bun. I could market these to people as that. I can see me selling these out of a big white food truck somewhere calling them albino pretzel buns. Much easier to say than Char Siu Bau. For me, at least!
