Filipino Pulled Pork Buns (A North American Twist on Pork Asado Siopao) Recipe

Okay, I’ve been wanting to post this recipe for a couple of months. It’s taken me that long to work up the energy to type up this recipe. It’s not difficult to make, but it does take some time. But believe me, it’s worth it! First of all, you need to make your filling. I use a slow cooker to make tender, juicy Filipino pulled pork. Then, you prepare some pillowy soft and slightly sweet steamed buns. For traditional siopao, you wrap the asado filling in the dough and then steam the dumplings – which is just as delicious. But we’ve opted to steam the buns and then slice them in half, inspired by the famous Momofuku pork belly bun. Then we topped each bun with pulled pork and a generous helping of siopao sauce. We didn’t want to mess with the traditional taste of siopao, so we didn’t add any cucumber crunch or pickled daikon, but you could if you wanted to! So if you’re looking for a small sandwich with all the nostalgic goodness of siopao, give this recipe a try.

 

  1. Prepare your asado filling by following this easy slow cooker recipe.
  2. While your filling is cooking, prepare your steamed buns.
  3. While your steamed bun dough is rising, prepare your siopao sauce.
  4. When these 3 elements are ready, assemble your sandwiches!
