Hey guys!
It’s been awhile since we last posted, but today’s video is awesome, so hopefully that makes up for it.
Most of us probably have tried Kong Ba Baos before (扣肉包 or braised pork belly steamed buns) but that’s not what we’re doing today.. it’s a bun with a Thai twist! Teaming up with our friends from Chefbox, we bring you 5 Spice Pork Buns!
Imagine the crispy crackling and melted fats from the goodness of pork belly, coated with sweet, spicy, yet savory Sriracha sauce, sandwiched between soft and fluffy steamed buns.
Going with that, we’re recommending a refreshing salad with an tangy and aromatic lime dressing to cut through the fats and to perfume the salad.
This dish is way easy to make and definitely a crowd pleaser in group gatherings and parties. Guess what’s better? Our friends from Chefbox have prepared all the ingredients in a box. Minus the hassle of shopping!
You can order one here right now!
