Pancit Bihon Guisado



Thank you Charlene of  A Pinch of Joy - Busy Monday Linky Party  for featuring my Christmas Fruit Cake

Happy New Year to all the blogger around the world. I have been on hiatus for a week due to the Holiday festive mood. I am happy and contented but bothered because in the very recent photographs, it looks I'm the heaviest... ha ha ha! My daughter jokingly told me ..you're so fat..and gosh when I saw the photos, yes it is..I am. Hmmnn..blame it to all the festive foods I ate.

Filipinos love to celebrate, Christmas and New Year is a part of our culture and one common celebratory dish is Pancit. We have varieties of it and every region in the Philippines has a version of Pancit. Would you believe, we have 35 to 40 types of Pancit Dishes? and among these I only know how to cook Pancit Canton and Pancit Bihon Guisado. I posted Pancit Canton before and if you want to know, you can find it here. So, in honor of celebrating another year of healthy life and prosperity, I will share my Pancit Bihon Guisado.


Ingredients:
1/4 cup oil
1 medium chopped onion
3 cloves chopped garlic
1 cup cooked chicken breast, shredded
1 cup cooked pork belly, sliced
12 pcs or more cooked prawns 
1 cup carrots sliced thinly
1 cup baguio beans sliced thinly
1 cup cabbage sliced thinly
3-4 cups of chicken broth
1 pack Pancit bihon abt 450 grams soaked in warm water for 2 minutes
1-2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground pepper
1 tbsp soy sauce

Direction:
Heat a pan or wok, add oil and saute garlic and onion, followed by veggies.
Cooked while mixing for about 3-5 minutes, then add chicken, pork and prawn.
Continue mixing then add soy sauce, a pinch of salt and ground pepper if you like.
Cooked for another 3 minutes then stop, transfer the sauteed mixture in a bowl.
Now, using the same wok or pan, add 3 cups of chicken broth, and let it boil.
Once the broth boils, add the soaked Pancit Bihon and let it cooked for about 3 -5 minutes
Add the sauteed veggies and continue mixing until the bihon is cooked and the sauce is almost dry.
Adjust the seasoning according to your preference. Add more salt and pepper
Serve immediately.
This is how the sauteed mixture looks like and I guess by now you know what guisado word is.. it means sauteed. I always love this mixture and I could just eat just the way it is.. veggies are crunchy and meat with prawn tastes fresh and succulent. The secret to a great tasting Pancit Bihon depends on your broth, it should be the broth from your cooked chicken, pork and prawn.
In case you are wondering what Pancit Bihon is, this is how it looks like. There are so many brands in the Philippines but here in Singapore,this is the only available I could buy.. not that great but kinda OK. Pancit Bihon symbolizes prosperity and longevity to us. Welcome to my blog, get comfy and lets eat.
