Third time lucky – my siopao asado

Hello everyone. I’ve been wanting to make siopao asado, which is the Filipino version of a dumpling. With a sweet and savoury meat filling and soft and fluffy bread, the steamed buns are just as good or even better than store-bought. Anyway, the first time I tried, the yeast didn’t bloom and the dough was so sticky, the second time, the mixture was so dry, I can’t even make a dough. I tried different recipes from different Filipino sites. The third time I tried, it was a success, I was so thrilled.

Here’s the recipe: Siopao Asado (

  1. Congratulations on a successful batch!

    I’ve been making dumplings like crazy too, mostly because we can’t get good vegetarian dumplings from takeaways. So, I’ve been practicing the different “skins” with varieties of vegetarian fillings.
