Online/Create Butaman, Japanese steamed pork buns from scratch!


We’ll make Butaman, Japanese steamed pork buns from scratch.
Butaman is delicious, fluffy, soft buns filled with juicy meat and vegetable filling.
This is originally dish from China.
Actually, the name ”Nikuman” maybe more famous than Butaman for overseas guests who have ever been to Japan because the Tokyo area’s people call it Nikuman.
But We call it ” Butaman ” in the Osaka area and its flavor is a little different.
Butaman is more soy sauce and sweeter than Nikuman.
There is a famous Butaman shop which was born in Osaka, the name is Horai 551.
We Osaka people love Butaman made in here.
This is a kind of soul food for Osaka people as the same as Takoyaki.
We’ll make Butaman with a recipe that is as close as possible to the same taste of Horai 551.
It is usual that you enjoy it with dipping sauce and karashi mustard when you eat Nikuman, but you enjoy it with only karashi mustard when you eat Butaman because Butaman has stronger flavor than Nikuman.
Great for all generations and very handy when you feel hungry if you make a lot at the same time and keep some of them in the freezer.
We hope that those who have been Japan, and those who haven’t would enjoy Osaka specialty.

1) Make Butaman dough
2) Make Butaman fillings
3) Wrap the fillings with dough
