How to Cook Rice Noodles aka Pancit Bihon


Pancit Bihon is my mom's favorite. I never learned how to cook it because my mom's tastes so good I'd rather leave the cooking to the expert. Last Sunday, I got a free Rice Noodle from Robinson's Metro East Supermarket because of the Value Card. 

My friend Carla must have sensed that I'll be needing a recipe. I regularly read her blog and voila... there's a Pancit Bihon entry.

Here's my first attempt in cooking Pancit Bihon. I checked my refrigerator for available ingredients. I came up with a variation from Carla's recipe.

Garlic, Onion, Cabbage, Carrots, Chinese Chorizo, pork broth cube, water

I sauteed the garlic, onion, chinese chorizo, carrots and cabbage. Seasoned with black pepper.  I set aside the veggies. I then bring to a boil 3 cups of water and dropped the pork broth cube. Then I added in the rice noodles. Simmered until there's not much liquid. I mixed the veggies and seasoned with soy sauce. Yup no salt. I never use salt at home :)

So there's dinner. Cooking time was fifteen minutes.

Paired with leftover pan de sal from breakfast. I actually love eating my pancit with rice. Carbohydrates overload!
