Recipe type: Main, Noodles
Cuisine: Filipino
Serves: 8-10 servings
  • 1 lb pancit canton noodles
  • ½ lb pork belly, cut into strips
  • 1 pc chicken breast, cut into strips
  • ½ pound raw shrimps, deveined
  • 2 medium carrots, julienned
  • 10 pcs green beans, cut into diagonal strips
  • ½ medium cabbage, cut into strips
  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup low-sodium soy sauce (use less if using regular soy sauce, adjust to taste)
  • 4 cups chicken broth (canned or homemade)
  • ⅛ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  1. Heat wok or large skillet. Salt pork belly with ⅛ tsp salt and let it brown. Let fat dissolve and come out. This step takes about 8-10 minutes . Discard oil leaving only 2 tbsp for sauteing.
  2. Throw in chicken breast and sauté until no longer pink, about 2 minutes.
  3. Add shrimps and cook until they turn orange, about 1 minute.
  4. Add garlic and onions and sauté until onions are translucent, about 3 minutes.
  5. Add carrots and green beans. Sauté for a minute then add the soy sauce and ground black pepper. Cook for 2 minutes till halfway done. Do not overcook.
  6. Transfer pancit base to a heat-proof container and set aside.
  7. In the same skillet where you sauté the meat and vegetables, pour 4 cups of chicken broth and let it boil.
  8. Add dry pancit canton noodles and cabbage. Lower heat to medium low and mix using a spaghetti spoon (much easier to maneuver than regular cooking spoon). Cook noodles and cabbage for about 2 minutes or until most of the broth is gone.
  9. Add the sautéed meat and veggies into wok/skillet and mix, mix, mix until everything is thoroughly cooked and the liquid dries up.
  10. Serve hot with calamansi or lemon or just as it is. Enjoy!
