Egg noodles with carrots, shiitake mushroom, pea pods, onions, garlic, green onions, pork and chorizo topped with cilantro in a white ceramic bowl

Stir Fried Egg Noodles {Pancit}


Description

Let me bring you a sampling of a well-known recipe from my native land, Philippines, called Pancit.  It’s pronounced, “Pan-set”.  It’s mainly stir-fried noodles with fresh vegetables and it can be served with or without meat.  It’s very simple to make.  Very light in calories and oh so tasty!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup chicken, pork or shrimp
  • 1 clove of garlic (crushed)
  • 1/2 cup onions (thinly sliced)
  • 1/2 cup fresh carrots (thinly sliced or julienned)
  • 1/2 cup fresh peapods (with stringy ends removed)
  • 1/4 cup fresh scallions (sliced)
  • 1 cup chicken stock (you may use water, but I find the chicken stock to add more flavor)
  • 8-ounce pack of pancit noodles
  • 1 Tablespoon soy sauce (or coconut aminos)
  • 1Tablespoon sesame oil
  • salt and pepper to taste (optional)
  • Cilantro for garnish  

Instructions

  1. In a skillet, on medium high heat, stir fry the meat in vegetable oil, until no longer pink, then add garlic and onions.  Cook until transparent without burning the garlic.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. You may season with more salt and pepper if you wish.  Serve with a sprig of cilantro.

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.
