Stir Fried Egg Noodles {Pancit}

Stir Fried Egg Noodles {Pancit}

Who’s ready to learn how to make this super delicious and healthy stir fried egg noodles dish, called Pancit? It’s pronounce “pan-set”…..at least that’s how I say it. Others may have a different pronunciation for it.

I came here in the States when I was 12 years old. So my accent may be a bit off. 😛

 

GATHER THE INGREDIENTS:

This is quite extensive. Note that, this specific recipe calls for some protein like chicken, pork or shrimp. But you can also make omit them and use tofu or just use more of the vegetables. And for the vegetables, any of your favorites would do.

8 oz. pack of pancit noodles

1 c. chicken, pork or shrimp

1/2 c. fresh carrots (thinly sliced)

1/2 c. fresh peapods (with ends removed)

1/4 c. fresh scallions (chopped)

1/2 c. onions (thinly sliced)

1 clove of garlic (crushed)

1 c. chicken stock (you may use water, but I find the chicken stock to add more flavor)

1 T soy sauce

1 T olive oil

1T sesame oil

salt and pepper to taste (optional)

sprig of cilantro

 

HOW TO COOK PANCIT:

In a skillet, on medium high heat, stir fry the meat in olive oil, until no longer pink, then add garlic and onions.  Cook until transparent without burning the garlic.

Add the carrots, peapods and scallions, waiting 2 to 3 minutes in between.  I like my veggies crispy.  Spoon the ingredients in a bowl and set aside.

Meanwhile, in the same skillet (without rinsing the skillet, as this will enhance the seasoning of the noodles) add the chicken stock , soysauce and sesame oil.  Add the noodles and stir fry until the noodles are tender to your liking.  Mix the vegetables and meat mixture in with the noodles.

You may season with more salt and pepper if you wish.  Serve with a sprig of cilantro.

  • 1/4 c. fresh scallions (chopped)

Notes

  • Serve with a slice of lemon on the side.  I find that a light squeeze of the lemon juice gives the dish an added zing!
  • For a non-meat variety, use fried tofu, and/or a combination of other green and leafy vegetables.
  • Use coconut aminos in place of soy sauce if desired.
