I just finished making Siomai for Hubby's midnight snack. This is a simplified recipe with no accurate measurements, just rough estimates, which is usual when I'm doing savory dishes.


1 and 1/2 cups lean ground pork
1 small carrot, finely chopped
2 eggs
1 to 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil (or less)
Japanese bread crumbs
Green peas, boiled
Chopped prawns
Siomai wrappers
Oil for brushing

1. Mix the first 10 ingredients in a glass bowl until well combined. Mixture will be wet and feels a little soggy, but that's a good thing :-)

2. Wrap in siomai wrappers.

3. Place aluminum foil in the steamer basket, lightly brush the foil and the siomai with oil, to prevent the siomai from sticking together. This photo was taken in the utility kitchen, so ugly. Ha ha ha.

4. Steam until the pork is cooked, maybe thrity minutes or so.

Apparently, my housekeeper did not follow my instructions to brush the siomai with oil that's why they stuck together like this. Haay.

Make a dipping sauce by mixing calamansi and soy sauce together. Enjoy!
