siopao sauce

Ever since we featured Siopao Asado here in our Filipino Food Blog, we have been receiving a lot of inquiries and requests for the Special Siopao Sauce that should go with it. Based on my replies on your comments, this Siopao sauce recipe should be released along with the Siopao Bola-Bola video (which I plan to feature soon) – but I’ve decided to publish this recipe ahead because more requests on this are coming in on a regular basis. 
We appreciate all your comments and emails. We will continue to work hard and do our best to be able to deliver your requested Filipino Recipes. Happy Cooking!
