One of the cool things about us, we love our street foods. Observers often marvel at how we have some kind of street food every 5 meters on the road. And we have lots of varieties too. it can be sweet, salty, may sabaw, with sawsawan, hot, cold -name it, we have it.

Here, I have collected all my QuickMix Recipes designed for our #kumikitangkabuhayan sa bahay -so you can easily see it in one document. I have originally wanted to put this in a downloadable ebook but that takes a bit more time than just putting these together for you. Soon I’ll have them in an ebook version and you can just download it from here so you always have a copy!

PS, if you’re new to my site, Welcome! These recipes require my Quick Mixes -so you can start a food cart business at home sooner without buying and investing in a lot of spices! All of these can be bought from the shop.


I have 2 kinds of the burger recipe here. One is the “pang business” recipe and the other is a for home type -with more meat. If you wan’t to sell the second one as a premium burger option, you can also do so.

Burger Business Recipe

  • 1/4 ground pork (a mix of pork at beef is the best!)
  • 4 TBSP + 1 tsp of the Burger Quickmix  (if using a weighing scale, use  34 grams)
  • 1/2 cup chopped onions (or more)
  • 120 g breadcrumbs (1/2 c plus 1/3 cup)
  • 2 eggs

Homemade Burger Recipe

  • 1/4 ground pork with fats
  • 1/2 cup chopped onions (or more)
  • 4 tablespoon 1 tsp burger powder( you can adjust the seasoning according to your taste)
  • 3 tablespoon breadcrumbs (optional)


  1. Maintain the cold temperature of your ground meat while preparing all the other ingredients.
  2. Cut up cellophane or plastic about the intended size of your burger so you will have a divider for every burger you make.
  3. Mix all the ingredients and shape into a burger.
  4. Fry and serve in a bun. Add vegetables such as lettuce and onions to hype up the flavor!


You can make other recipes with this burger! Moms have reported making  Burger and Mushrooms. Slow Cooked Burger Soup, and Burger Steak ala Jolibee!


Siomai Biz Recipe

Combi 1

  • 450 gms ground pork 80% lean. <<Make sure its the correct weight.
  • 200 grams squash grated and squeezed. (Alternatives: Singkamas, Camote, Carrots)
  • Siomai Biz Recipe Powder
  • Extender
  • 3/4 cup or 164 ml water
  • 3 tbsp sesame oil


  1. Soak extender in water about 2-3 minutes until moistened.
  2. Mix the ground meat, grted and aqueezed squash, extender, powder mix until sticky.
  3. Add sesame oil.
  4. Set aside in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
  5. Wrap in Siomai / Dumpling wrappers. Each one should be 10 grams each.Yield should be at least 100 pcs.
  6. Boil water in a steamer. Brush steamer with oil so Siomai wrapper wont stick. When water is boiling, add the Siomai. Add a layer of cloth before covering so steam wont fall on the Siomai. Time for 20 minutes.

Even cheaper costing!

Combi 2.

  • 1/4 ground pork
  • 200 grams squash
  • 200 grams singkamas
  • Siomai Biz Mix
  • Extender
  • 3/4 cup or 164ml Water
  • 3 tbsp sesame oil

Same procedure.


Of all the vegetables we tried, my favorite is squash. It has no squash taste, but feel free to use others you prefer.

Use the largest size wrapper so your Siomai looks bigger.

Dont prepare the Siomai in front of an electric fan so your wrpper will not harden.

Freeze after cooking so it will last for 30 days. REMEMBER that this recipe has no preservatives.

Chili Garlic Sauce



  1. Heat your oil.
  2. Pour oil in the chili garlic. Our chili is not very hot. You can add more chopped chili if you prefer it spicier.

Special Siomai

  • 800 grams Ground Pork with fat
  • 2 small Carrots ( grated or minced)
  • Spring Onions (minced)
  • 82 grams Siomai QuickMix (1 pack)
  • 2- 3 TBSP Sesame oil
  • Wonton Wrappers (available in markets and Supermarkets)


  • 1 cup (or about 200 grams) grated turnips (singkamas), squeeze out the juice (optional)


  1. Mix meat and singkamas. (if using)
  2. Add the Siomai QuickMix
  3. Add the sesame oil. Mix well.
  4. Wrap the mixed ingredients in a Siomai wrapper. (14 grams each if measuring)
  5. Top with carrots. (for those beautiful orange design you see on Chinese restaurants)
  6. Brush your steamer with oil before arranging your Siomai on it. (Or else the Siomai will stick to the steamer and will result in a bold – este, Wrapperless Siomai.
  7. Make sure to leave spaces so the dumplings will not stick together.
  8. Boil the water first. After boiling, then you can add the steamer  with Siomai on it. Time it for 20 minutes in medium fire.
  9. Cover with a cotton cloth or “lampin” before then secure the steamer cover on top. This is to avoid the steam water from falling into your Siomai.

Serve with soy sauce, calamansi and sesame oil. Chili sauce is a must!


  1. If using turnips or singkamas as extender – make sure to use lean ground pork because singkamas has water content and your Siomai will be moist and flat like my first one.
  2. You can cook a large batch and freeze the dumplings in the freezer. Let it rest and cool before freezing. Consume within 30 days.  Remember, this has no preservatives, my Quick Mix are preservative free spices that is only designed to make it easier for the homecook! If not putting in the freezer, please consume immediately.
  3. Oh, and another thing, when you’re wrapping your Siomai, make sure the wrapper is not exposed to too much air (like electric fan, or if you’re sosyal with an air conditioner in the kitchen hahaah!) The wrapper will harden and it will break when you’re wrapping the Siomai.


  • 83 grams of Tocino Quick Mix or if there is no weighing scale, measure 1/4 cup plus 4 tablespoon of our Tocino Quick Mix. (not the whole pack)
  • 2 tablespoon white sugar or 25g
  • Red food color for coloring (optional)
  • 1/2 TBSP Gin
  • 1 1/2 TBSP Pineapple Juice
  • 1/4 kilo Pork Kasim (sliced thinly)


  1. Pound the meat using a meat pounder or use the back of a knife.
  2. Add all ingredients in a Ziplock bag or a Tupperware. Mix thoroughly.
  3. Add pork and marinate in the refrigerator for 2 days. (If not using immediately, you can put it in the Freezer after 2 – 3 days)
  4. Put 1/8 cup of water and 5 tablespoon oil in a pan and cook until the water has evaporated and there is only the oil remaining. Turn the meat over a few until it is cooked.

Note s:

If you find it too sweet, you can remove the sugar.

If you  want to add preservatives, from this site.

*Instead of pineapple juice, some of my clients use half a sachet of Pineapple Tang powder plus the whole Tocino Quickmix pack.


Skinless Longganisa( Hamonado Style)

  • 1/4 cup vinegar (I used Datu Puti)
  • 1/2 kilo LEAN ground pork >>Make sure its LEAN -shouldn’t have fats or else it will fall part)
  • 1cup golden brown sugar (this helps with the color)
  • Longanisa Quick Mix
  • Longnisa Extender

  • Add the vinegar
  • Add the sugar

  • Put in the freezer for about 30 minutes to firm up the meat.
  • Form into Longanisa sausage or even patties if you desire. I use the Ice Plastic that you can buy from the market and cut it up in 2. You can also use wax paper.
  • If you’re selling these, weigh each one into 15 gms per sausage.
  •  Fry in low fire so the sugar will not be burned.


Mix 1/4 teaspoon food color plus 1/8c water. You can also use atsuete but it’s pricier than food color.

  • You can add minced garlic if you want garlicky a Longanisa..
  • If using hog casing, you can use 50-50 fat at lean for a juicier and yummier Longanisa.

  • 45 ml white vinegar (Datu Puti or Silver Swan )
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 3 TBSP plus 1/2 tsp Shawarma Quickmix

  2. Pan fry until the edges are dry. No need to add oil.
  3. After frying, cut into pieces.

Personally, I like pan frying better than baking because it’s tastier.  The Shawarma Quickmix can make a kilo of meat but this recipe is only for 1/2 kilo. If you want to use all the mix, use 1 kilo of meat.

For sellers:

For each Shawarwa,  beef weight should be is 35 grams per pita bread. You can prepare this ahead and put in a plastic and freeze. Then you can just take out 1 pack and reheat everytime theres an order.

Pita Bread

  1. Put your Pita Bread Quickmix in a bowl and carefully add 70 ml of water. Mix until it forms a dough. (for the P50 per pack Quickmix use, 140 ml of water)
  2. Knead dough for about 3-5 minutes until the dough is shiny.
  3. Cover the dough with plastic and  rest for 20 minutes till double in size.
  4.  Put some flour in the table where you will cut and prepare the Pita.
  5. Weight 50 grams each doughfor each Pita Bread. You can make 5 pita bread.
  6. Flatten the dough using a rolling pin intil its thin enough. You can use a long bottle if you dont have a rolling pin.
  7. Heat a non stick pan over medium heat. Dont put oil.
  8. Put the Pita Bread on the hot pan and wait till you see some bubbles. Flip over.
  9. This is ready to serve!


You can put your bread in the freezer for up to two months. Make sure that it is in a sealed plastic so it will not dry out.

Put the Pita Powder in the refrigerator for extended shelf life.
