Siopao literally means “steamed bun”  with yummy meat fillings. It is a famous Chinese-Filipino snack or street food.  It’s mainly sold in Chinese restaurants or by sidewalk vendors in the Philippines.

Pork Asado Siopao or Steamed Pork Bun is the most popular type  and a favorite of many Filipinos including me. There are many kinds of fillings that can be used in this siopao recipe but pork asado is the most popular one.

Making siopao or steamed pork bun is not as difficult as you think, if you have some experience in kneading dough, then making siopao is easy. The only tricky part is twisting and sealing the dough when you finished wrapping up the filling. It must have that fluffy and soft bun with yummy filling inside.

Here’s a Siopao with Pork Asado Filling recipe you can follow, Enjoy!!!

 

Ingredients:

4 cups flour

Heat oil in a pan over medium heat then sauté the garlic and onion.

For Siopao Dough:

In a bowl or glass, pour in 2 cups of warm water, add the sugar, shortening and stir for a while to dissolve then sprinkle the yeast and set aside for at least 10 to 15 minutes.

After 10-15 minutes you can now add the salt and olive oil in the bowl, mix well, add the flour and continue mixing till well blended; knead on floured board until smooth.

Shape the dough into a ball and place in a bowl greased with. Grease surface of dough. A little bit of olive oil so it won’t stick or you can buy a non-stick spray for food so it won’t stick on the bowl.

Cover with wet cloth, foil or a food plastic wrapper and set aside for at least 60 – 120 minutes in a warm temperature place to let the dough rise.

Then after that you can now punch down the dough and divide into desired sizes.

Form into balls and let them rise again for 30 minutes.

Flatten dough with a rolling pin.

Fill the center with prepared pork asado using spoon.

Wrap the filling similar to wrapping a siomai and seal the dough by twisting the top and shape into small balls.

Place a piece of clean wax paper at the bottom of the balls to prevent them from sticking to the steamer.
