I really love this bao idea I came up with using refrigerator biscuits, especially after trying them in Rice Village when I was taking the wine specialist courses (man, were those horrid),

and although I’ve never heard of one before, I wanted a dipping sauce to serve with them. Yes, a dipping sauce for bao. This sauce is about as simple as it gets. The flavor will also go great with egg rolls, spring rolls, potstickers chicken, pork or lo mein.

The Sauce:

2 tsp soy sauce
½ c rice wine
3 tsp brown sugar
½ tsp fish sauce
1 tbs green onions
1 tsp crushed red pepper

The Bao

Char Pork

Combine all of the sauce ingredients in a small sauce pot. Bring to a boil and remove from heat immediately. Stir. Transfer to a small dipping bowl and serve with your favorite appetizer. If microwaving, combine all sauce ingredients in a microwave safe bowl. Heat for 20 seconds. Stir and transfer to a dipping bowl.
