This recipe is from week six of my food blog, "Travel by Stove." I am attempting to cook one meal from every country on Earth, and American Samoa is my sixth stop. Kek pua'a is a Samoan version of bao, which you can sometimes find in Chinese restaurants. It is traditionally served with a pork filling.
