  • Summary

    Chinese Hamburger, Rou Jia Mo (肉夹馍) means “meat in a bun,” which sort of makes it similar to what we’d think of as a hamburger, or maybe a Chinese sloppy joe. So there’s the meat filling of shredded pork belly with spices and fresh herbs sandwiched between a homemade pan baked bun.

    Ingredients

    • 2 pounds pork belly
    • 3 cups water
    • ¼ cup Shaoxing wine
    • 12 grams rock sugar ((or 1 tablespoon granulated sugar))
    • 2 tablespoons light soy sauce
    • 1 tablespoon dark soy sauce
    • 4 scallions ((cut in half))
    • 3 slices ginger
    • 2 star anise
    • 1 cinnamon stick
    • 1 black cardamom pod
    • 2 pieces galangal ((or sand ginger))
    • 1 teaspoon Sichuan peppercorns
    • 3 bay leaves
    • Salt ((to taste))
    • 1 cup chopped cilantro
    • 3½ cups all-purpose flour ((by weight, each cup is equivalent to 150 grams))
    • 2 teaspoons active dry yeast ((about 8 grams))
    • ¾ teaspoon salt
    • 1 to 1¼ cups warm water ((depending on humidity))
