Asado Buns

I’ve been dreaming of making buns, even the simplest one, but I used to fail on all of my attempts.

Asado Buns

I used a “no-knead” recipe for the buns. This recipe requires more time since “farting” of dough needs at least overnight. According to the recipe it is better to “fart” the dough for 1-4 days inside the fridge to make it taste better.

Asado Buns

Asado buns or more popularly known today as toasted siopao, is a modified version of the traditional and soft-bun siopao. Instead of steaming the asado-filled buns, it is baked. Aside from asado, filling can be also modified with your favorites like bola-bola, ham and cheese, tuna or even chicken.

I also made homemade pizza with the excess dough. This time, the dough is better compared to the previous recipes I made. I will not stop with this recipe. I will keep on trying on how to make this one better.
