MainRecipesPork | Carnitas Steamed Buns

   Carnitas Steamed Buns submitted by Mom Johnson
Similar to Asian steamed buns but with Mexican flavor! Double the dough recipe to make about 20 buns.

Mix first 5 ingredients together and rub onto pork roast. Chop onion and slice jalapeņos and place in the bottom of a crockpot. Put roast on top of vegetables. Mix juices and garlic cloves; pour over top of roast. Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours. Shred pork with 2 forks and save the juice for dipping.

Mix sugar, yeast and warm water in a small bowl and proof for 5 minutes or until foamy. Add flour, salt and baking powder and mix till "shaggy". Let rise for about 1 hour in a warm place. Punch dough down, let rest for 5 minutes then cut into 8-10 pieces. Put about 2 T. shredded pork into one piece of dough, pinching edges together to form a ball-shape. Fill remaining pieces in the same manner. Steam buns for about 15 minutes. Serve warm buns with remaining meat juice and fresh guacamole.

Makes about 20 buns.
