Updated on September 2, 2009

How to cook Pancit Bihon (Rice stick noodles)


  • 1 lb rice stick noodles (bihon)
  • 1 medium sized chicken breast(boneless), boiled & sliced in strips
  • 1/4 lb pork butt, sliced in strips
  • 1/4 lb uncooked shrimps, shelled and de-veined (optional)
  • 1 small cabbage, shredded
  • 1 small carrot, julienned
  • 1 celery stalk, sliced thinly
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 large onion, minced
  • 8 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp fish sauce
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 4 cup water
  • 1 whole lemon(slice in 8-10 pcs) or 4-5 pieces of calamansi (Philippine lime/lemon)



- Soak the rice stick noodles in a clean basin and soak in 1 cup water, 1 cup chicken broth and the 1/2 cup soy sauce mixture to soften. Add half teaspoon of ground black pepper. Squeeze 3-4 slices of lemon into the marinade. Stir. 30-45 minutes should be good. 
- In a wok or large frying pan, boil pork in 3-4 cups of water until tender. Wait until the water runs out. Pour the cooking oil and sautee pork until brown and toasted.                                    - Brush pork aside the pan, and add garlic and onions to sautee.
- Add the chicken, shrimps and vegetables and continue stir frying until the shrimps turn pink and the vegetables are half cooked.
- Add 1 cup of the chicken broth and soy sauce and simmer for about 1 minute.
- Remove half of the ingredients from the pan and set aside as topping for the noodles later.
- Remove the noodles from the soaking water and add to the ingredients remaining in the pan.
- Stir constantly until the noodles are cooked and dried. Do not overstir as the noodles will get mushed.
- If it becomes dry before the noodles are cooked, just add the remaining broth accordingly.
- Season with fish sauce and pepper to taste.
- Arrange the cooked noodles in a big platter and put the toppings.
- Serve with slices of lemon or calamansi.


- Do soak noodles firsthand before starting cutting up all of the ingredients such as meat, vegetables, etc. This saves you more time.

- Make sure to turn over noodles from time to time when you soak them. This way the noodles will soften evenly.

- When adding broth or water to soften the noodles, make sure to add little by little or else, the noodles will get too thick or will get mushed. It's always better to add more broth/water than to take out.

- The color of the noodles shouldn't get too dark.
