Steamed Luncheon Meat Buns

To be true, I seldom serve spam meat to my kids as you know it is loaded with sodium and preservatives. So when I make this simple steamed spam meat buns for my boy for tea-break, he can't get enough of it, keep saying very very nice! hahaha...

Ingredient (9 buns)
  • 200gm  Hong Kong Flour (sifted)
  • 5gm instant yeast
  • 1 tsp double acting baking powder
  • 50gm sugar
  • 10gm shortening 
  • 70ml-100ml water
  • 9 slices spam (luncheon) meat

  1. Combine hong kong flour, instant yeast and double acting baking powder together.
  2. Dissolve  sugar in a bowl with 80ml water.
  3. Make a well in the flour mixture and pour in the sugar solution. Combine well and gather into a dough. Add a tablespoon of water if it is too dry.
  4. Add the shortening and knead until a smooth dough (Dough should be soft and may even be a little sticky, but it is okay)
  5. Place dough in a greased bowl and prove it for 45 minutes or until almost double in size.
  6. Knead dough a couple of times and roll into a long strip. Cut into 40gm pieces.
  7. Roll into a flat disc and wrap with a slice of luncheon meat.
  8. Leave to rest for about 10 minutes before steaming over preheated steamer at high heat for 10mins.

Hi Peng,
Looks very delicious, I loved luncheon meat when I was young, but now afraid to serve them to my family. Once in a while still ok lah. Btw, must you fry the luncheon meat before putting in the buns?

Peng said...

Miss B...nope I did not pan fry the meat :)
