How to cook Pork Siomai the panlasangpinoy way.

Siomai is a traditional Chinese dumpling. This popular dumpling has made its way to the heart of the Filipino’s as evidenced by the hundreds of stalls, eateries, and restaurants who serve them. Traditionally cooked through steaming, siomai nowadays are also served fried complimented with soy sauce and calamansi.

This recipe that I have for you is the Cantonese variety. It basically makes use of ground pork, shrimps, and mushrooms as the main ingredients. I liked this recipe for its oriental taste.

    Easy to do this is a firm favourite, although better if eaten immediately. I find it does not re-heat well if one of the family is having tea late.

  • hautething

    This was, without qualification, the most lifeless recipe I have ever eaten. It’s not BAD… it’s just DULL and tasteless.
