Sio Pao (Filipino Steamed Buns)

Sio Pao (pronounced as "shopaw") is a popular snack in the Phillipines, and has always been an all time fave of mine. It's usually filled with a meaty filling flavors like asado or guisado, but the mung bean and ube filling sio pao will always be the best for me. I already did a previous post on how to make sio pao with ube filling (click here), only this time I'm posting about the veggie filling, but the dough recipe is the same.

Mix Veggie Filling

1 cup grated carrots
2 cups minced cabbage
minced veggie meat (you can put any veggie meat you want)
minced red bell pepper
1 tsp white sugar
2 tsp soy sauce
1/2 tbsp peanut oil
1/4 tsp sesame oil
salt and pepper to taste

mix together 1/4 tsp hing and 1/4 tsp black pepper.

1. Heat the oil in the pan, once heated put the masala for about 2 sec, then add in the carrots.
2. When carrots are slightly cook, add the veggie meat and the bell pepper.
3. After 2 mins, add in the cabbage.
4. Add in the soy sauce, sugar, salt and pepper.
5. Stir in the sesame oil when it's done.
