This is the way my husband's family makes their pancit bihon. It is a huge hit with all my non-filipino friends as well. All of the meats are interchangeable and optional.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Start by soaking rice stick noodles in warm water for 15 minutes or until softened, then drain.
  2. Bring chicken, pork and 1-1/2 cups water to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat; shred the meat into small pieces- reserve the water.
  4. (A sturdy mixer such as a Kitchen Aid can be handy in shredding meat using the whisk attachment).
  5. Heat oil in a large, wide saute pan.
  6. Saute garlic and onion in oil until onion is translucent.
  7. Add shredded meat, shrimp and soy sauce and stir-fry 5 minutes.
  8. Over high heat, add cabbage, carrots, salt, pepper and 1 cup of broth.
  9. Stir fry for an additional 2 minutes.
  10. Reduce heat to low and add rice noodles, tossing gently (wooden spoons work best) until cooked through and well blended, approximately 3 minutes.
  11. If the mixture seems dry, add more broth.
  12. Serve immediately with soy sauce.
