The Essential Sheng Jian Bao 生煎包 — soft & pillowy steamed bao outside. Meaty & succulent pork filling inside. Crispy & greasy pan-fried bottom.

There's only one thing more perfect than a pork bun — a pan-fried pork bun. That's why Shanghai's Sheng Jian Baos are such a revelation. The crispy bottoms elevate (not literally) the entire bun, adding much-needed crisp, grease, heat and umami.

These essential buns come formed, filled, rolled and ready — to be steamed, fried, and smothered in black garlic chili oil.

All Purpose Flour, Egg, Dry Active Yeast, Salt, Sugar, Canola Oil, Ground Pork, Soy Sauce, Onion, White Pepper, Ginger, Sesame Oil.
Allergens: Wheat, Egg, and Soy

From frozen, steam 10-15 minutes. Thawed, steam 7-10 minutes. Heat one table spoon of neutral oil in a pan. Cook steamed bun bottom until golden brown.
