Pancit Canton

Pancit Canton

Pancit Canton is a noodle dish that is of Chinese origin. This is prepared pretty much like the Pansit Bihon, though an obvious distinction would be the noodles used (rice sticks vs. flour sticks). This dish closely resembles the Chow Mein but preparation and some ingredients vary.


In a pan, heat the oil then sauté the garlic and onion

Add the pork and cook until the outer part turns light brown

Add the soy sauce and cook for 5 minutes

Put in the chorizo, oyster sauce, and chicken stock and simmer for 20 minutes

While simmering, blanch all the vegetables in a separate pot

Put in the parsley and shrimp on the pan where the pork, chorizo, and other ingredients are cooked

Add salt and pepper to taste then let cook for 2 minutes

Put in the Flour sticks and cook until the liquid has been absorbed by the noodles

Add all the blanched vegetables and mix with the rest of the ingredients

Serve hot.
