Ingredients

  • 8 ounces Pancit Canton (dried egg noodles)

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 small onion, chopped

  • 1/2 pound chicken breast or pork, sliced into thin strips

  • 1/2 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined

  • 1/2 cup Chinese sausage (lap cheong), sliced into thin rounds (optional)

  • 1 cup mixed vegetables (cabbage, carrots, snow peas, bell peppers, etc.), sliced into thin strips

  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce

  • 1/2 cup chicken or vegetable broth

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Calamansi or lemon wedges for serving (optional)

Directions

  • Boil water in a large pot and cook the Pancit Canton according to the package instructions. Usually, this involves boiling them for about 2-3 minutes until they are soft but not overcooked. Drain and set aside.
  • In a large wok or a wide, deep pan, heat the vegetable oil over medium-high heat.
  • Add the minced garlic and chopped onion and sauté until they become fragrant and slightly translucent.
  • Add the sliced chicken or pork and cook until they are no longer pink. If using Chinese sausage, add it at this stage as well.
  • Add the shrimp and mixed vegetables to the wok and stir-fry until the shrimp turn pink and the vegetables are tender but still crisp.
  • Pour in the soy sauce and oyster sauce. Mix well to coat the meat and vegetables.
  • Add the cooked Pancit Canton noodles to the wok.
  • Pour the chicken or vegetable broth into the wok to help loosen and flavor the noodles. Stir well.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste. Adjust the seasoning and soy sauce if necessary. Continue to stir-fry until everything is well combined and heated through.
  • Transfer the Pancit Canton to a serving platter and garnish with calamansi or lemon wedges, if desired.
