Our adventure in recreating savory Shanghai style Zhongzi. We haven't attempted to make this since my Grandmother was alive.
We have started with the objective of making 100 pieces. Our planned inventory so far is:
10 pounds of sweet rice
20 pounds of pork belly
4 packs of bamboo leaves
Soy sauce (we are going by color....so we will have to work this out)
This is a two day project. Marinating the meat and the rice a day ahead is preferred. Tomorrow, we will begin assembly. We are planning for a minimum of four hours for simmering. I am assuming we will need to begin folding by noon, in order to have dinner ready by seven.
