Braised Duck Siopao (Bao)

I joined #homecookbattle and #duck happens to be the theme ingredient this month. I'm for many challenges and this is THE most challenging because ducks creep me out (crying emoji).
Siopao is a steamed bun stuffed with something savory or sweet. In this case it's stuffed with braised duck.
It turned out better than I thought and it reminded me of the Filipino pork asado siopao.
