Pancit Canton

Pancit-Canton

Pancit Canton is a popular noodle dish in the Philippines along with Pancit Bihon, and Pancit Sotanghon. Canton noodles are made of flour sticks and the dish is very similar to Chow Mein. There are different versions of this dish and it all depends on the ingredients. Some cooks prefer using pork, and some prefer using shrimp. You may also add any type of vegetables in it. Well, I mean stir frying veggies such as cabbage, green beans, carrots, celery, etc.

Today, we are using chicken, celery, carrots, and bok choy just to make it simple. I actually thought of adding snow peas but when I saw the price tag of $6.99/lb . . . nah; I decided to opt out. But if you want to use them, knock yourself out.

    Snow peas really are rather expensive at the moment, aren’t they? I’m not buying them either! Anyway, I really like this dish. But I don’t think I’ve ever come across a noodle dish I didn’t like. ;-) Good stuff – thanks.

    Of course – you can’t go wrong with a brand called “Excellent”! Good choice Ray. :) Actually I remember seeing this brand at our local Asian Market. I’m definitely picking some up next time I go so I can made this dish. Plus the market sells HUGE bags of baby bok choy for really cheap. Which is a good thing, since we both love it. I know we would both LOVE this dish! Thanks Ray! Hope you’re having a wonderful week!
