In the famous words of All Might, "I am here!" Well, these delicious steamed buns are, anyway! In the last season of My Hero Academia, All Might treats his students to some steamed pork buns that he picked up from a convenience store (my fellow Americans: they are way nicer than the convenience stores we have in the States, haha!).
Since I don't eat pork (as aforementioned in the recipe for Deku's katsu cutlet), I'll be using seitan in these instead, which has a great flavor that makes for a good pork replacement in dishes like this. And to save some time, we'll be using Pillsbury dough sheets to make the buns instead of hand-making the dough.
These were pretty difficult for me to make since this was my first time attempting to make steamed buns in this style, but they still came out really tasty despite not being the prettiest! I think the biggest issue with mine was that I made my buns too small.
If you make this and your food comes out prettier than mine, please tag me in your posts so I can can be impressed by your hard work!
