The first time I ate bapao I was 8 years old. We went into a small Chinese Toko. All kinds of different scents and smells came our way when we walked into the Toko to buy bapao. We went home and warmed them in a small steamer pan. I never forget the taste of the soft fluffy steamed bun first and the pork meat in soy sauce second.

    After seeing those delicious buns I followed to the pork recipe. I’m in Canada and have never heard of Fricandeau pork. Is it from a particular strain of pigs, a cut, a method of preparation before it’s cooked? I’d like to know more. Thank you.

      Hi,
      Fricandeau meat is like tenderloin and a skinny part of the pig. As it cooks it get really tender and soft that is why I use it for this recipe. It should almost fall apart. Hope this helps.
