Pancit Palabok

This is my shortcut version. I used to make my Palabok sauce from scratch but one time I bought a Palabok sauce mix and tried it but found it too salty for my taste. Thus my shortcut Palabok recipe was made.

Pancit Palabok Sauce recipe #2

*Saute garlic, onions and ground chicken (or minced chicken). When chicken is cooked, add chopped shrimps and saute until pink.

*Use one packet of Pancit Palabok mix (I use Mama Sita or White King brand).

*Follow the directions at the back of the packet. (It says to add water to the mix).

*Add the uncooked sauce to the sauteed chicken and shrimp. Bring to boil and simmer until thick.

*Add 1 can of Cream of Mushroom soup and enough chicken broth or water to
make a nice sauce. Make sure you don't add too much broth or your sauce will be too watery.

*Mix very well until the Cream of Mushroom is incorporated with the Palabok sauce.

*Bring back to boil. Simmer for another 10 minutes stirring frequently (important if you are not using a non-stick pot).

*Season to taste (I found that the Palabok mix tend to be salty so I don't have to add any more seasonings).

*Serve over cooked pancit bihon. Add ground chicharon, tinapa flakes, eggs, green onions and lemon.

Voila, an instant Pancit Palabok sauce that's fast and easy.

    Thank you for sharing your recipe. This is the first time I've seen a recipe of Pancit Palabok using cream of mushroom. I'm now very interested in trying your recipe. Curiosity is creeping in - - - what made you decide to use cream of mushroom?

    I didn't Campbell has cream of shrimp. may be better than pounding cooked shrimp shells to get juice. May be puree more shrimps with the cream to give more shrimp flavor.Is there a special original best palabok noodles to use? Just my imaginations. I have not cooked palabok in my life. Craving now.

    Didn't know Campbell has cream of shrimp; may be better than pounding cooked shrimp shells. May be puree more shrimps in sauce to add more authentic shrimp flavors. Is there a special specific original palabok noodles to use? These are just my imaginations. Never cooked palabok in my life. Craving now.
