My cousins came to visit us one weekend. One of them loves my pancit bijon and so I thought of cooking it for her. Her daughter particularly likes squid balls in her pancit so instead of the usual shrimp and pork I usually put in my bijon, I made one with squid balls and chinese sausage.
About 500 gms of pancit bijon
1 tbsp of olive oil
About 4 pcs of chinese sausage, sliced diagonally
About 250 gms of squid balls, cut in half
1 tbsp of finely chopped garlic
½ lb of cabbage
½ lb of green beans
2 pcs of carrots, julienned
green onions for garnishing
1 pouch of Mama Sita’s chopsuey/pancit canton mix
Boil pancit bijon according to packaging instructions. Set aside
In a pan, heat oil. Add the chinese sausage and cook for about 1 minute. Add the squid balls and sauté for about 2 minutes. Saute the garlic until fragrant. Add the carrots and cabbage. Cook for about 2 minutes. Add the green beans and cook for one minute. Season with mix. If you wish, set aside at least a cup of the cooked vegetables for topping or garnishing. Add ½ cup of boiling water and the cooked noodles. Mix the vegetables and the noodles. Garnish with green onions. Serve hot with calamansi or lemon.
