Hubby just celebrated his birthday a few days ago. We had spaghetti, pizza, calamari, and mojos for lunch and dinner courtesy of our daughter. Thanks, N.
Everyone is busy so we were not able to take pictures of the food except this Ube Bloom Cake from Red Ribbon Bakeshop. We prefer this cake variant from the other ones that we tried before because the icing is not too thick and the sweetness is just right for us.
Happy birthday, we love you so much. We pray for your good health and long life. May all your wishes come true. 🙂
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.
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
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.
Boil pancit palabok noodles for 12 minutes to 15 minutes. Saute ground pork in garlic and onion. Add dried shrimp. Add atsuete water mixture. Let it simmer. Add flour. Mix thoroughly. Add shrimp cube. Simmer. Add fish sauce and black pepper to taste. Simmer for a few more minutes.
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. 🙂
This is a thank you post. Our niece who got back from a vacation in Taiwan gave us this delicious pineapple cake in a box. On the other hand, hubby received a boxful of non-fat fresh milk from the office.
We are always grateful for the provision that we received.
