    Oh! I love braised pork…but do not make often because my husband is not into it :-( And I love both way, with a big bowl of white rice or in a bun…SO SO yummie!

    Thanks for the post — reminds me of how our whole family loves it whenever my Mom makes Kong Bah Pau.

    I’ll go make some soon!

    I love one dish meals too. One dish, 2 meals is even better!

    Now I know where David Chang from Momofuku got the inspiration for his dish! Yours looks better though!
