The filling for these baos may be unexpected, but Claudette Zepeda's recipe for Birria, a chile-rich savory shredded beef, is a delicious match for the chewy and slightly-sweet dough. If you are lucky enough to come across some cilantro blossoms at the farmer's market, pick some up. They make a wonderful garnish for the baos. Be sure to line the bottom of your steamer with parchment paper so the bao dough sticks to the paper, and not the steamer.
