Basic Pancit Recipe (Filipino Noodle Dish)

Updated on February 19, 2013


4 stars from 3 ratings of Pancit

Another Tradition and Favorite

Once you learn the basics of this dish, there are many variations you can try on your own. You can change the type of meat, noodle, and vegetables to your liking. Some ideas for different veggies are cabbage, snowpeas, or green onion instead of the celery or green beans. Whatever you like, throw in!

This is a traditional filipino dish, a staple to any celebration and always an option at those turo-turo joints, turo-turo meaning "point-point" in tagalog (think Panda Express style food place, but better). My mom always said that eating noodles on holidays like on your birthday or on New Years is good luck, as the noodles represent long-life and good fortune.

Go to Seafood City or an asian market to buy the noodles. The rest you can buy at VONS or wherever you shop for food.

I used a combo of shrimp and pork for the meat.  Coated the pork in a little flour before browning in the pan.  Not necessary, I was just going above and beyond.

  • 1 Package Rice Noodles, or subsitute any other asian noodle
  • 1/4 Minced Garlic
  • 1/4 Diced Onion
  • 1/2 Cup of Each, diced Assorted Veggies, Carrots, Green Beans, and/or Celery
  • 1/4 lb Meat, Use pork, shrimp, chicken, or a combination
  • Teaspoon Each Soy Sauce and Patis, Taste Test for Flavor
  • Oil, For Frying
  1. Brown meat in wok with oil. Add garlic and onion once meat is half cooked. Meanwhile, soak the rice noodles in a separate bowl or tray to soften and prep for stir-fry.
  2. Add veggies to meat and simmer together for a couple minutes. *Make sure the veggies don't overcook and get soggy.
  3. Drain water from the rice noodles then throw noodles into wok. Stir it up with everything else, add salt and pepper and soy sauce to your liking. I usually add the soy sauce until the noodles are a very light brown. Always taste test before serving!
  4. Eat with lemon squeezed on it. Mmmmmm sarap!
Throw it in the pan and mix it up!
