Today I’m sharing one of my husband’s favorite noodles dish all time! That is…
Filipino Pancit! (Pancit Bijon- the thin noodle one!)
It usually made with pork, chicken or/and shrimp. I make vegetarian version (no protein and vegetable stock instead chicken stock) sometimes as a side dish with other filipino foods.
If you haven’t checked my filipino pork rib adobo recipe, you are totally missing out!! It is so delicious with jasmine rice but it’s amazing to serve with this delicious pancit as well! 🙂 (Click the Picture ?? down below!)
One day I just figured that I make pancit with bacon way more often than any other protein because I always have bacon in my refrigerator! I literally use bacon for anything and everything, I mean, it’s bacon!! lol
I hope you give this recipe a try one day! If you haven’t tried Filipino food yet, this will be the best choice to try as a first time! 🙂Print

- Prepare rice noodles by following directions of package you are using.* Drain.
- Chop garlic, slice onion and cabbage into 1/4-inch wide. Slice carrot 1/8-inch thin. Cut bacon into bite sizes.
- In a small mixing bowl, mix chicken stock and soy sauce and set aside.
- Heat a wok or large skillet over high heat; add bacon. Cook bacon until edges are golden brown and bacon released its fat in wok approximately 2 Tbs, about 4 to 5 minutes.
- Add garlic and onion, stir fry for 1 minute.
- Add cabbage and carrot, stir fry until all vegetables are soften, about 2 to 3 minutes. Stirring frequently.

My package of rice noodles (Orchids brand) is pre-cooked and dried noodles, so I didn’t need to cook it. My package says just rinse under cold water and seaside but I just soak it in cold water to speed up the process.
