Nice Baos buns

First of all tell you that this recipe is wonderful.

We will prepare pork belly cooked at low temperature in the oven for 3 hours with a very special and very oriental sauce.

With the bacon we will fill the Taiwanese breads with steam. The BAOs are Oriental snacks that are steam-cooked. You can make them or buy them in specialty stores. Now you’ll find quality baos ready to just steam and serve.
