This recipe is really GOOD!
This was a good recipe but I tried the dough recipe 4 times before I gave up. I reached out to some friends for a dough recipe and it was suggested I use frozen dough. The frozen dough worked wonderfully and if you want a little sweeter bread sprinkle a little sugar before cooking. also I baked it (roughly 10 to 15 min.) instead steaming it. These shortcuts were suggeted by my filipino sister in law and the family loved it, reminded me of the Siopao Daddy made.
This recipe was a disappointment. The filling was good, but the dough was a disaster. I live in a very dry region and I should have taken that into consideration when following this recipe. The dough was rock hard and extremely difficult to work with. I'll try this recipe again, but I'll have to ensure that the dough is pliable.
Thank you for sharing this recipe! We can't get enough of it. I now keep a stock in the freezer for a quick bite.
I made a half recipe of this yesterday, otherwise sticking to all ingredients and procedures. I agree with the other reviewer that the dumplings are good. However, personally I prefer a moister, more vegetable-heavy filling than is used here. With the half recipe I got 12 dough portions of 55 to 60 grams each. I was a little concerned about the amount of baking powder, because I had not made a yeast bread with so much baking powder in it before, but bread part of these seems to be fine. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us.
