You will need:

  • 1 tbsp cooking oil
  • 1 small red onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 500 grams chicken breast, sliced into large pieces
  • 4 cups water
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup oyster sauce
  • 1 tbsp hoisin sauce (1 tbsp mushroom-flavor soy sauce, for darker color)
  • 1 star anise, remember to remove this later

Cornstarch mixture

  • 1 tbsp cornstarch, for thickening the asado filling sauce

For the Siopao sauce

  • 2 cups braising liquid


  1. Heat oil over medium-high heat.
  2. Sauce garlic and onion until the onion is almost translucent.
  3. Add the chicken pieces and stir-fry until the color turns to light brown.
  4. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir well. Bring to a boil and skim the scum that may float on top.
