Chinese influence in Filipino cooking is evident considering the popularity of noodle dishes, dimsums and dumplings.  Siomai is one of  these dishes all filipino love.  In siomai recipes we normally use half pork meat and half shrimp for filling.  But do you know that we can also do it with beef filling or pure vegetarian version?

Beef Siomai


half a kilo of ground beef

half a kilo of ground pork

* you can either use one kilo of beef if you prefer (for vegetarian version you can replace the beef with mushrooms and tofu that is chopped finely)

1 onion minced

some spring onions chopped

a thumbsized ginger pounded

2 teaspoons of sesame oil

2 tablespoons of soy sauce

1 teasepoon of sugar

1 teaspoon of tabasco (optional)

siomai wrapper


Mix in a bowl all the ingredients except the siomai wrapper.  Mix them well using your hands.  Taste if it additional salt is needed. Wrap them in wonton wrapper.  Steam for about ten to fifteen minutes and serve with soy sauce and kalamansi.

    yols, you entered in this web so dapat walang pakialamanan ng recipe. iyan ang recipe nya eh, nasa iyo na un kung susundin mo kung di mo naman sundin at may ibang option ka edi gawin mo ng sarili mo. isa pa, masarap naman ang mga ginamit nya na recipe eh, kung baga standard na recipe nya iyan. if di ka pa din matahimik edi gumawa ka ng website mo at recipe mo ang ilagay mo..
