Flossy Pork??

Eat with your taste buds, not with your eyes. This is a difficult mantra to live but it will surprise you sometimes! Frozen buns [Mantou – Chinese steamed buns] with “pork fuzz” (as I like to call it) aka meat wool, pork floss, flossy pork, etc. [Ching Yeh Pork Sung]. My college roommate was from Taiwan and this was her favorite breakfast meal when she visited NY. She would bring back these items for me to try.

There are six per pack, from the H Mart.  You can take out the number that you’d like at a given time and place the opened bag back in the freezer.  I would put them in a freezer bag, you don’t want freezer burn!  Make sure to take off the parchment paper under each bun.  Wet a paper towel and wring it out just a little.  Open the towel and then wrap the bun, folding over the edges.  Place wrapped bun on a plate.

Put the bun in the microwave for about 1 minute.  It will be hot when you take it out, so be careful.  Remove the paper towel and slice open the bun like you would a bagel.  Use a sharp knife, as the bun will be rubbery.

Then, using your fingers, place a few heaping pinches of the dried pork “fuzz” on one side.  Then, simply put the sandwich back together.  Enjoy this doughy exterior with sweet, melt-in-your-mouth (literally) pork fuzz.  Your eyes may be unsure but your mouth will say YES!
