I LOVE PANCIT! I grew up across the street from a lovely Fillipino family. So needless to say I ate Fillipino food almost on a weekly basis! Pancit, lumpia, adobo, and pan de sal! Oh the wonderful memories!!!! I have been making Pancit since my Fillipino “grandma” taught me when I was about 15!
1 pound beef, thinly sliced, I buy it this way at the Asian market
4-5 green onions, sliced
2 carrots, sliced or grated
1 zucchini, thinly sliced
2 celery, thinly sliced
1/4 cabbage, thinly sliced
1 package thin rice vermicelli instant noodles
2 tablespoons Red Boat Fish Sauce
1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce, coconut amigos of Tamari
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup Mayonaise
1-4 tablespoons Asian Hot Sauce, to taste
- Fill a large pot with water and bring to boil… Once water boils turn off heat and set aside.
- Heat half of the oil in large wok or skillet.
- Add the beef and the green onions.
- Cook on high until the beef is cooked through.
- Add the remaining vegetables and stir fry on high.
- Add the soy sauce, fish sauce and remaining oil a bit at a time until everything is nice and coated.
- Place the rice noodles in hot pot of water until they are soft … About 2-4 minutes
- While they are in the pot of hot water cut using kitchen shears … I just randomly cut until noodles are all cut into small pieces
- Drain noodles.
- Turn off heat in wok and add the noodles. Toss gently until well incorporated.
- In a small bowl mix the Mayonaise and Asian hot sauce depending on how spicy you want it. Drizzle over the top! I was not taught this… I serve it this way to my kids and they love it!
