Roujiamo (Chinese Pork Stuffed Buns)


  • Pork: 500g pork belly with skin, 30g soy sauce, 15g oyster sauce, 10g dark soy sauce, 20g cooking wine, 4g salt, 2 star anise, a pinch of Sichuan peppercorns, 10g green onion, 10g ginger, 5 cloves of garlic
  • Bun Dough: 300g all-purpose flour, 3g dry yeast, 180g room temperature water, a little soy sauce, a sprinkle of white sesame seeds
  1. Clean the pork belly and cut it into large pieces.
  2. Marinate with soy sauce, oyster sauce, dark soy sauce, cooking wine, salt, star anise, Sichuan peppercorns, onion segments, shredded ginger, and sliced garlic. Adjust the types and amounts of seasonings to taste.
  3. Marinate for 4 hours, turning 1-2 times in between.
  4. Prepare all-purpose flour, dry yeast, and room temperature water for the dough.
  5. Mix the dough ingredients with chopsticks until shaggy, then knead into a smooth dough and cover with plastic wrap for primary fermentation.
  6. Ferment the dough until it is 1.5-2 times larger; it should sound hollow when tapped and show a honeycomb pattern inside when torn.
  7. Sprinkle flour on the work surface, knead the dough until smooth, roll into a long log, and cut into 12 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a ball.
  8. Flatten each dough ball and roll out into palm-sized buns. Brush lightly with soy sauce and sprinkle with white sesame seeds.
  9. Place the buns in an air fryer without further proofing. Spray a little vegetable oil on the surface and bake at 180°C (356°F) for 5-8 minutes. Adjust time for desired softness or crunchiness.
  10. No need to flip the buns during baking. They should have a beautiful color and slightly browned bottom. They will soften as they cool.
  11. Bake the marinated pork in the air fryer using the "roast" setting for 18 minutes, or manually set to 180°C (356°F) for 18-20 minutes, adjusting the time based on the thickness of the meat.
  12. The pork should have a golden-red color and be free of excess fat after baking.
  13. The roasted pork will be fragrant, flavorful, and not greasy.
  14. Cut the pork into slices about 5mm thick. Prepare some lettuce or fresh green and red chili peppers for additional filling.
  15. Slit the buns along the edge, leaving one side intact.
  16. Stuff with roasted pork and lettuce, and they're ready to serve!
