The Daring Cooks' December :Cha Sui & Cha Sui Bao and a very late Moo Shu

After a very long time I' m finally back and what a coming back ! We went crazy for this recipe and I soon want to make the steamed buns as well !

Our Daring Cooks’ December 2011 hostess is Sara from Belly Rumbles! Sara chose awesome Char Sui Bao as our challenge, where we made the buns, Char Sui, and filling from scratch – delicious!

In the recipe Pork's meat is marinated and grilled, afterwords is finally cut and stir fried and finally is the filling for the delicious buns.
You will find he recipe in a handy PDF here.

Being in a Chinese mood we decided to go on and I prepared the recipe that was the Daring Cooks' challenge for October.
A delicious dish served with very thin pancakes and hoisin home made sauce.

 The October Daring Cooks' Challenge was hosted by Shelley of C Mom Cookand her sister Ruth of The Crafts of Mommyhood. They challenged us to bring a taste of the East into our home kitchens by making our own Moo Shu, including thin pancakes, stir fry and sauce.

This recipe was delicious as well if you want to try it the recipe is in a PDF here.

It's nice that you were able to combine two challenges into one meal. I am sure it must have been good :-)

Looks so good!
You asked me what I meant by's called almond bark and it's sold in the baking dept. It's really good chocolate to use for dipping things into!

These are beautiful buns. I have Tessa's book and clearly don't cook out of it enough.
