Chinese BBQ Pork 'Tacos' instructions
- In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cake flour, yeast, sugar, and salt; add the water and oil. Using your hands, mix and then knead in the bowl until dough forms (add up to 1/4 cup more water by the tablespoonful, if necessary)..
- Turn out the dough onto a lightly floured work surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes. Put the dough into an oiled bowl, turning the dough to coat it with oil, then cover with a clean dishtowel and let rise at a draft-free warm room temperature, until doubled in size, 45 minutes to 1 hour..
- Meanwhile, cut out a dozen 3-inch squares of parchment paper. Punch down the dough and form it into a 3/4-inch-thick rope. Cut into 12 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a ball. Place balls on a baking sheet, cover loosely with plastic wrap, and let rise at warm room temperature for 30 minutes..
- Pat each ball into a long oval, about 1/8 inch thick. Brush each oval with oil, then fold in half crosswise, place on a parchment square, and brush with oil. Place on a baking sheet and repeat with the remaining dough pieces. Loosely cover the buns with plastic wrap and let rise at a warm room temperature until nearly doubled in size, about 30 minutes..
- Bring a few inches of water to a simmer in a pot so that the bottom of a steamer insert sits above the water. Arrange the buns, in batches if necessary, about 1/2 inch apart, on the insert and steam over medium heat, covered, until the dough is slightly puffed and cooked through, about 10 minutes..
- Make the slaw by combining the mango, cucumber, green onions, serrano pepper, cilantro, mint, olive oil, lime juice and salt in bowl. Set aside..
- For the pork, Marinate the steaks in soy, honey, garlic powder, onion powder, and ginger powder. Grill on high heat for 5 minutes per side on the BBQ. Rest for 20 minutes then slice thinly. .
- Assemble the tacos and enjoy!!.
At my favorite Chinese restaurant, they will serve this with the main entree alongside the fried rice. If you love a juicy, sweet & sticky char siu (Chinese BBQ Pork), give this easy recipe a try! Delicious char siu is achievable at home! Updated to include instructions on how to make char siu in the oven so this can be made in the oven or the grill depending on the season. Char siu literally means fork burn/roast-'Char' being fork (both noun and verb) and siu being burn/roast-after the traditional cooking method for the dish: long strips of seasoned boneless pork are skewered with long forks and placed in a covered oven or over a fire.
