F&W Best New Chef 2017 Peter Cho, of Han Oak in Portland, Oregon, says that this is a cheater version of his favorite xiao long bao (soup dumplings). “I love when you poke the side of a soup dumpling and the rich, porky chicken stock spills out into your spoon and mixes with the black vinegar dipping sauce. For my version, I took the difficulty out of making and filling the dumplings by instead just serving them with a rich chicken stock–and–vinegar dipping sauce.” Slideshow: More Pork Recipes
F&W Best New Chef 2017 Peter Cho, of Han Oak in Portland, Oregon, is a master at riffing on Asian classics. He says that he created this dish to curb his wife's cravings for one of their favorite places in New York City, Xi'an Famous Foods. "When we lived in New York, we went there pretty regularly, and we always ate the tiger vegetable salad, warm spicy tofu and the pork zha jjang hand-pulled noodles," he says. "This is my version of a combination of those dishes."
