Pancit Canton Noodles Pork and Veggies Stir Fry Pinterest

Pancit Canton noodles pork and veggies stir fry recipe, a flavorful filipino recipe made of stir fried pancit noodles, pork loin and veggies, so good! Pancit Canton is Philippines pride dish where it is served on special occasions, very similar to Lo Mein, delicious!

Pancit Canton noodles are another kind of dried wheat noodles but eggless, originally from China and nowadays more commonly consumed in the Philippines where it’s a traditional dish served on special occasions. Pancit canton is quite similar to Lo Mein.

In the Philippines, it is believed that since "noodles represent long life and good health, they must not be cut short so as not to corrupt the symbolism.”

Pancit Canton is great to clean up your fridge as it can be made with whatever veggies you have on hand.

To make this Filipino style Pancit Canton stir fry, you can use the same large frying pan all along, you will need to:

  • Marinate the pork about 15 minutes, quickly stir fry it, then set aside
  • Make the omelet, as typically in fried rices, an egg yolk is added to the hot frying pan, broken and cooked until barely set, then quickly scrambled, set aside
  • Briefly sauteed the veggies and make the sauce
  • Cook the noodles, pancit noodles are not very hard and quickly cooked, in general I add them to a large bowl, cover them with boiling water and with a lid, drain them once cooked
  • At last you can assemble veggies, pork and noodles, cook two or three minutes just to re-heat.

Whilst the vegetables are cooking, cook the pancit noodles as per instructions on the package and set aside. In general, cooking time is 1 minute, what I do is I boil water, pour it in a large bowl, add my noodles, cover and stir them from time to time until they’re cooked (That’s one pan less on the stove to take care of)

Drain well, set aside
