Pansit Canton

I had a craving last night for something delicious and homemade, something tried and true, something that would take me back to when I was a kid, so I decided on Pansit. My mother used to make this Filipino dish every now and then when I was growing up, and I always have just loved it. It's so flavorful, so tasty, and you'll love it too. I didn't bother my mom with the recipe for it last night, so I looked it up online and found one similar to hers. Now this recipe wasn't the same as my mom's, so I edited it to be as close to my mom's recipe as possible. If you wish to see the whole version as it was before I changed it up a bit, click here. I HIGHLY recommend this, it was delicious!

Pansit Canton Ingredients:

  • 12 ounces pansit canton noodles (rice noodles)

  • 4 cups chicken broth

  • 1/2 pound pork, sliced in small pieces

  • 1/2 lb.-1 lb. pound shrimps, shelled and deveined

  • 4 tablespoons cooking oil (I used some EVOO)

  • 1/2 cup chopped onion

  • 2 tablespoons garlic, minced

  • 2 cups cabbage, sliced into strips

  • 1 cup celery, sliced

  • 1 carrot, sliced

  • 1/4- 1/2 cup soy sauce (to your liking)

  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil

Pansit Canton Cooking Instructions:

  • In a big pan or wok, sauté in oil the garlic and onions. Then add sliced pork until cooked.

  • Add 2 cups of chicken broth and add shrimps, cabbage, celery and sliced carrot. Simmer for about 10 minutes or until cooked.

  • Add the remaining 2 cups of chicken broth, soy sauce, and the pansit canton noodles. Let simmer until noodles are soft.

  • Add the sesame oil and serve hot.

***Note: Preparation and cooking time takes approximately 1 hour (I'm slow so it took me a bit longer).

You have to let me know how it turns out. And it takes me an hour, but I don't chop vegetables like a pro; I'm working on that though. ;) Trust me, you'll LOVE it!
