Pansit Guisado Recipe

Boq and I bought rice noodles some couple of weeks back and used a few strands for rice noodle soup (I'll post the recipe here in the future). We did not know what to do with the rest of the noodles so I suggested why not make a pansit guisado instead.

Pansit is a popular noodle dish in the Philippines, which is commonly served during fiestas, birthday occasions and widely celebrated holidays.

The typical pansit guisado recipe consists of very thin rice noodles stir-fried with chopped vegetables, soy sauce and some variations of sliced meat (e.g. chicken, pork & shrimps). When eaten, it is normally seasoned with black pepper powder, lemon/kalamansi (citrus) and patis (fish sauce).

In this recipe, I used chicken and liver for the meat ingredient. Chicken liver is tastier than the chicken meat in my opinion. And since it is also ideal to cook pansit guisado using two kinds of noodles I used pansit bihon and pansit canton together.

  • 200g pansit bihon (rice noodles or vermicelli)
  • 200g pansit canton (Chinese noodle)
  • 100g chicken meat, boiled and cut into strips
  • 150g liver meat, boiled and diced
  • 1/2 kilo cabbage, shredded
  • 200g green beans, sliced thinly
  • 1 medium-sized carrot, cut into strips
  • 1 medium-sized onion, sliced
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • green bell pepper, cut into strips (optional)
  • soy sauce to taste
  • chicken bouillon cubes or chicken stock
  • vegetable or palm oil
  • water

    For seasoning: lemon/kalamansi (citrus), black pepper powder and fish sauce

    1)Heat oil in a large wok or pot.
    2)Sauté garlic until light brown then add onion.
    3)Add the chicken strips and diced liver.
    4)Then add the vegetable ingredients in the following order: green beans, carrots, cabbage and bell pepper.
    5)Season with soy sauce then add water and chicken cubes or chicken stock.
    6)Add the vermicelli and noodles. Add more water/chicken stock, if desired. Stir continuously until cooked.

    Useful Info:
    1) To eliminate the difficulty of mixing, boil and cook first the Chinese noodles to make it pliant in a separate pot.
    2) Similarly, soak the rice noodles or vermicelli in the water 2-3 minutes to make it pliant.
    3) Use a large wok or pot when cooking pansit guisado as the mixing is a bit rigorous.

    Preparation and Cooking Time: 45-60 minutes
    Serving size: 6-8 persons
