Simple Palabok Recipe

This is my first attempt to prepare Palabok. I’ve got my inspiration from Chef Tatung’s Simpol palabok recipe on Youtube. Although I made some modifications like cooking the ground pork thoroughly before adding the sauce.

Ingredients:

Excellent Pancit Palabok Noodles

For the sauce:

(I don’t have specific measurement for the ingredients. Tantyahan na lang. 😀 )
cooking oil
chopped onion
chopped garlic
dried shrimp (hibi)
annatto oil/water (atsuete)
all-purpose flour
2 Knorr shrimp cube
1/4 kilo ground pork
fish sauce (patis)
ground black pepper

For topping:

These are the only available ingredients for toppings I have in the kitchen. You can add variety of seafood for toppings such as, shrimps, mussels, squid.

chicharon baboy crushed

Arrange the boiled noodles in a plate. Pour the sauce on the noodles. Add in toppings. Enjoy!

We have this for dinner last night and for breakfast this morning. 🙂

She was able to do this graham cake twice. Too bad, this is the only good photo that we have.

Procedure:

Mix the condensed milk and all-purpose cream in a bowl.
Place a layer of graham cracker in a plastic or glass container.
Add a generous amount of condensed milk and cream mixture on top of the graham crackers.
Add sliced mangoes
Place another layer until you achieve the desired height or layer.

Best served chilled.
