1. Boil 6 large eggs for about 10 minutes. Add a little bit of salt to the eggs when boiling, it will help when removing the shell.
2. Remove the shell and cut the eggs in halves
3. Set aside.

1. One bag of the pre-mix flour (There are many different brand of these, choose the one you like. They all contain the same thing. Keep in mind that which ever brand you choose, it says “Steam Bun”. You don’t want to buy Dim Sum mix.)

3. Pour the flour mixer in a medium bowl and add the milk and sugar mixer.

—Stuffing and Steaming—
1. Bring to boil in your streamer 5 cups of water. (I don’t know how big or small your streamer is, so adjust to fit yours)
2. Cut the dough into 12 even pieces.
3. Take one of the dough pieces and roll it out with a roller. (Hint: do not roll the dough too thin or the meats will fall out when you steam it)

6. Bring all side of the dough to cover the meat and egg.
