Baking Sheet with Baking Paper
Pot with Lid


Roast the Potatoes
  • Preheat your oven to 240°C/220°C fan/gas mark 9.
  • Chop the potatoes into 2cm chunks (peeling optional).
  • Pop the chunks onto a large (lined) baking tray.
  • Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper then toss to coat. Spread out in a single layer. 
  • When the oven is hot, roast on the top shelf until golden, 25-35 mins. Turn the tray halfway through.

TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary.

Prep the Veg
  • Meanwhile, to make your slaw, halve the cabbage, cut out and discard the tough core, then thinly slice. Add to a bowl and mix with half the aioli. Season to taste with salt and pepper
  • Mix the miso paste and remaining aioli in a small bowl. 
  • Trim and thinly slice the scallion.
  • Peel and grate the ginger. Use a teaspoon to easily scrape away the peel.
Make the Hot Honey
  • Place a pot over medium heat (without oil).
  • Once hot, dry-fry the sesame seeds, stirring regularly, until lightly toasted, 2-3 mins. Remove from the pot and set aside.
  • Return the pot to medium-high heat with 2 tbsp butter (double for 4p) and the chilli flakes (use less if you don't like spice).
  • Fry for 30 secs then remove the pot from the heat.
  • Add the honey and mix well to combine. Set aside and cover to keep warm.
Fry the Pork
  • Place a pan over medium-high heat (no oil).
  • Once hot, fry the pork mince until browned, 5-6 mins. Use a spoon to break it up as it cooks. Season with salt and pepper. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw mince. Mince is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
  • Add the ginger and fry for 1 min more. 
  • Remove the pan from the heat and stir through the hoisin sauce
Warm the Bao
  • Place the bao on a plate (three at a time) and microwave, covered, for 1 min.
  • Keep covered until ready to serve.

TIP: You can also steam the bao. Place a large pot with 2cm of water over high heat. Once boiling, place a colander lined with a baking sheet on the pot. Place the bao (three at a time) on the baking sheet, cover and steam for 3-4 mins.

Assemble and Serve
  • Once the potatoes are cooked, toss them through the hot honey and divide between plates. 
  • Fill the bao buns with hoisin pork and a little slaw.
  • Drizzle the miso aioli over the top. 
  • Serve with remaining slaw alongside. 
  • Finish with a scattering of sliced scallion and sesame seeds.
