Steamed Meat Buns (Nikuman)


Nikuman are delicious, fluffy, soft buns filled with a succulent meat and vegetable filling. Great as a snack during cold seasons or as a warming Bonfire Night treat, their soft, moist texture and generous filling make nikuman the perfect comfort food.

Nikuman are similar to Chinese baozi, or steamed buns, and are often sold in convenience stores or at street stalls in Japan. Making nikuman usually takes some time, especially for kneading the dough, but thanks to our recipe you will be able to create this Japanese street food staple in no time!

    Lovely, I’d love to try it! But what if I don’t have a steamer?
