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.
You should keep in mind that sauces should be stored inside the fridge to increase its shelf life. This special siopao sauce is no exception. You can refrigerate this for a couple of days for maximum freshness.
