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. 😀 )
dried shrimp (hibi)
annatto oil/water (atsuete)
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.
chicharon baboy crushed
fried tofu (tokwa)
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. 🙂
