    WaterMelon's Note:

    I have not tried this recipe yet, but hopefully will make this soon as I love Char Siew Sow! Recipe found on internet - Jo's Bakery. Prep time includes 30mins chilling time for the dough. NOTE - this recipe is not really authentic as the fat used in traditional Chinese pastry is usually lard instead of butter.

      I was kind of disappointed with this recipe. The pastry crust wasn't as tasty as I'd hoped.
