I finally made pork asado siopao with perfect soft bread this time, and I am thrilled to share my experience with you. Siopao or hot buns are a type of dumpling with a sweet pork filling. It’s been weeks that I’ve been studying how to make a perfect soft dough/bread for my siopao with all the recipes I see from the internet. The first recipe I used is from Panlasang Pinoy dot Com, it went well, but the dough is kind of hard when it gets cold. So I browsed for some more, and once again, I stumbled to Manang Kusinera’s Siopao recipe! After reading all through her ingredients and instructions, it’s time to give it a try.
My Pork Asado Siopao Turned Out Great
I may not follow all her instructions, but the result was very pleasing to me. Soft bread for the perfect pork asado filling! Yey! My husband and kids had fun eating them, and it was a double success for me (of course!), first for cooking well and last for seeing them munching all the siopao. I see that my skills in cooking are improving, yet I still have plenty to learn. I still have time and will never get tired of trying every dish I want to eat and cook.
The procedures could be scary at first, but it turned out a fun activity for my kids and me. All of them helped me in making the dough. They even made their own little siopao and compared it with each other’s work. It’s a delight after combining all the ingredients. Indeed, the kitchen is such a wonderful place!
