Preparation

  1. Fill a wide, high-sided skillet with 2 inches (5 cm) of water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Line a bamboo steamer with parchment paper and cut slits in it to allow steam to escape.
  2. Meanwhile, gently roll out the biscuits into 3-inch (7.62 cm) rounds. If desired, use a cutter or glass to cut out uniform circles, discarding the scraps. Spray the biscuits with nonstick spray and fold in half.
  3. Set the steamer basket over the boiling water. Add the biscuits to the basket, spacing evenly. Cover and steam for 5–7 minutes, until cooked through and puffed.
  4. Gently transfer the buns to a wire rack to cool slightly.
  5. Fill each bun with pickled vegetables, a slice of pork belly, cilantro, and mint.
  6. Enjoy!
