Special Pancit Bijon

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.

your pansit might be worth the trip to your place...I love pansit but the restaurant cooked pansit tend to eb too oily which i dislike. I love home mad pansit because they are full of flavor and not oily. also has bigger meat or shrimp in them.
