Pancit Noodles with Beef 

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!
