My preferred Pancit Bihon recipe as adapted from my parents' recipe. You can use chicken, pork, or shrimp (or a combination of all three). If you're gonna use chicken, I suggest boiling the chicken first in 1.75c of water with some salt and pepper…
Keep the broth for the sauce.
- 8 ounces bihon (/glass noodles)
- 1 cup brussel sprouts (shredded)
- 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 3 cloves garlic (minced, or 1 tbsp of garlic powder)
- 8 teaspoons soy sauce
- 2 teaspoons fish sauce (patis)
- 2 1/2 teaspoons pepper
- 1 dash salt
- 1 dash cayenne pepper
- 4 ounces chicken (or pork, cubed)
- 10 pieces shrimp (20 if you're only using shrimp)
- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 1 3/4 cups water
- 1 cup baby corn (optional)
- 1/2 cup carrots (optional)
- Put the bihon noodles in a large bowl and add enough water to soak all of the noodles. Keep the noodles in there for about 5-7 mins or until you prep all the ingredients. Drain afterwards - don't leave the noodles for too long or else they'll be soggy.
- Over medium heat, heat the oil over medium heat, Saute the garlic until golden brown. Add the onions and cook until clear.
- Add the protein and saute until almost cooked.
- Add the veggies (brussel sprouts, baby corn, carrots, etc) and cook for about a minute.
- Add the soy sauce, pepper, cayenne powder (and garlic powder). Stir all the ingredients to make sure the seasonings are mixed together. Add the salt and pepper to taste.
- Add the water (or broth) and bring to a soft boil. Add the patis before it boils. When the water starts boiling lower the stove to low-medium
- While the water is softly boiling, stir in the bihon noodles. Stir occasionally until the noodles absorb all the broth, then turn off the stove.
- Serve warm. You can squeeze in some lime or lemon for some zest.
