Beef Siomai

Siomai are Chinese dumplings that are loved by us, Pinoys. Variety of main ingredients can be used for siomai. Pork, shrimp, chicken, beef or combination of either of these will greatly give a tasty outcome for this recipe. I personally love pork siomai from Philippines but since pork is not always present in our fridge I became used to have beef for siomai. Below is my simple recipe of siomai. Enjoy!

  • 1/2 Kg ground beef
  • 1/2 tbsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup onion, minced
  • 1/2 cup carrots, minced
  • 1/2 cup mushroom, minced
  • 1 pack won ton wrapper
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 piece raw egg
  • water for steaming

  1. Combine all the ingredients except for the water and wanton wrapper and mix throughly.
  2. Wrap the mixed ingredients using the won ton wrapper.
  3. Steam the wrapped siomai for 15 to 25 minutes. The time depends on the size of each individual piece.
  4. Serve hot with soy sauce and calamansi/lemon dip.
  5. Share and enjoy!


  1. PANSALT, the low-sodium salt from Finland, is now available in the Philippines. PANSALT is the tastier & healthier way to salt. With PANSALT, you can avoid and better manage hypertension and its unwanted side-effects such as heart attack, stroke, kidney disease, among others. PANSALT has also been approved as an organic food ingredient by the European Commission. Make that switch to PANSALT NOW!!!
