Cooking Instructions

Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius and place your pork belly strips into an oven proof dish. Cook for approximately 30 minutes, turning half way. Remove your frozen bao buns from the freezer to allow to defrost slightly. Mix all of your spicy mayo ingredients together and add more or less sriracha depending on how spicy you like it. Prep your veggies then steam your defrosted bao buns according to packet instructions ( either in a bamboo steamer or just in the microwave). Once your pork belly is cooked slice into smaller bite sized pieces and then place everything into your bao bun.
