Siopao Asado or Hot Buns is a type of dumpling with sweet pork filling. Often referred to as Steamed Dumplings, this tasty bun is so popular that it needs no introduction of any sort.
  Warm water 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Sugar 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs) (Added To The Flour Mixture)
  Dry yeast 1 Tablespoon (1 Pouch)
  All purpose flour 5 Cup (80 tbs)
  Baking powder 1 1⁄4 Tablespoon
  Shortening 6 Tablespoon
  Pork 2 Pound, chopped into small pieces
  Lard/Shortening 3 Tablespoon
  Garlic 2 Tablespoon, minced
  Onion 1 Large, minced
  Cornstarch 2 Tablespoon, diluted in 0.25 cup water
  Water 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Soy sauce 4 Tablespoon
  Sugar 4 Tablespoon
  Oyster sauce 3 Tablespoon
  Hoi-sin sauce 1 Tablespoon

1. Cook the Asado filling
1.1 Heat the shortening in a pan
1.2 Saute the garlic and onions
1.3 Put-in the pork and cook until the color of the outer part turns light brown
1.4 Add the soy sauce, oyster sauce, hoisin sauce, and sugar then mix well. Simmer for
40 minutes
1.5 Put in the corn starch (diluted in water) and mix until the texture of the sauce becomes
thick then set aside
2. Make the dough
2.1 Place warm water in a bowl then add the yeast and sugar and mix well.
Leave the mixture for 10 to 15 minutes
2.2 In a mixing bowl, put-in the flour, baking powder, shortening (or lard), and the yeast-
sugar-water mixture then mix well (bubbles should have formed on top by then).
2.3 Knead the combined mixture until the texture of the dough becomes fine. Let the dough
rise by setting it aside for at least an hour (place in the mixing bowl and cover the top ).
2.4 Knead the dough again then cut into individual slices (this will be the dough per
individual siopao).
3. Flatten the dough until a round shape is formed using a rolling pin.
4. Put the asado filling on the middle of the flattened dough and wrap. (refer to the video for the technique if interested)
5. Place the siopao in a steamer and steam for 15 minutes.
6. Serve hot. Share and enjoy!
