Who doesn’t like the occasional siopao? Left to my own devices, I would have these steamed fluffy buns morning, noon and night. But as deep as my affinity to siopao is my dislike for their labor. The making of the dough, the filling and the sauce all translate to a good day’s hard work and not one I am willing to tackle. My solution? Refrigerated biscuits, packaged frozen meatballs and canned boiled quail eggs! In twenty minutes tops, I can have a dozen or so of stored siopao bola-bola in the freezer to zap in the microwave at desire’s notice. Yes, I have to admit, my cheater’s siopao do not come out as pearly white or as pretty (I have my twisting-dough skills to blame) as the traditional but texture-wise they are so soft and pillowy, you won’t know the difference.
