Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2 shallots, chopped
  • 2 leeks (white parts only), sliced
  • 8 large shiitake mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 can (16.3 oz) Pillsbury Grands Buttermilk Biscuits
  • 2 green onions, sliced

Instructions

  1. In a medium-sized skillet, heat canola oil on medium high. Add shallots and leeks. Sauté for 7 minutes until caramelized. Add mushrooms and sauté until cooked through. Stir in hoisin sauce, soy sauce, and ginger. Mix well. Remove from heat and toss in green onions.
  2. While vegetables are cooking, separate dough into 8 biscuits. With fingers, flatten each into rounds about 1/2 inch thick. Fold over to form half-moon shape; place in steamer or bamboo steamer lined with parchment paper. Set steamer on top of wok or saucepan with boiling water. Steam 10 minutes; cool completely.
  3. Cut buns in half, but not completely through, to form a pocket. Stuff buns with vegetable mixture and serve immediately on a platter.
