Authentic Chinese Siomai recipe


Pork 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 complemented with soy sauce and calamansi.

Pork Siomai Recipe

In Manila, the best siomai can be found in the Manila ChinaTown (which is the oldest ChinaTown in the world). Several Chinese restaurants and even stalls serve different siomai varieties. Outside of Chinatown, Pao-Tsin would be the best one for me. We also have a deep fried siomai recipe.

This Siomai 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.
