Pancit Bihon

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Jaymee

Something new to try. I used a combination of recipes for this one and it tastes very much like the pancit I enjoyed from the many Filipino friends I made while my hubby was in the Navy. It looks like more work than it actually is...try it and have some fun.

Don't hate me, but I didn't have fish sauce and used the same amount of oyster sauce instead. I also didn't have green onions or mushrooms, and I hate lemon/lime in my savory food, so I skipped that. It was still amazing. I will definitely add this to my regular rotation and keep my changes (unless I happen upon green onions - I'd definitely add that!). Thank you for sharing this recipe!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. First a note*** I used left over pork roast cooked in the crockpot for this recipe.
  2. However, there are many variations of pancit-- some calling for a combination of pork, chicken, shrimp.
  3. You may start with raw meats just poach them in a small amount of water and cool and shred.
  4. Save the broth to use where chicken broth is called for later in the recipe.
  5. (Reserving 2 cups).
  6. Soak rice noodles in hot tap water in large bowl for about 20 minutes and then drain in colander.
  7. Do this while preparing vegetables.
  8. Heat oil to medium in a very large pan with deep sides.
  9. Saute onion and garlic 3 minutes.
  10. Add meat, soy sauce and fish sauce.
  11. (Another note, you may choose to add more fish sauce but this is really potent stuff. If you have never cooked with it before, stick to the recipe.)
  12. Turn up the heat to high.
  13. Add cabbage, carrots, mushrooms, celery, a pinch of salt and pepper and 1 cup of broth.
  14. Stir fry 2 minutes or until veggies are crisp tender.
  15. Reduce heat to low and add rice noodles, in small amounts, stirring to break up.
  16. Add broth as needed to keep mixture from becoming too dry.
  17. Cook just until noodles are warm.
  18. Serve with lime or lemon wedges, scallions to sprinkle on top and extra soy sauce.
  19. You may also offer cilantro leaves and or hard cooked egg slices.
