Pancit miki (thick egg noodles) with pork and vegetables

There is a 20-minute pancit miki recipe in the archive that has chicken and carrots; this is the more traditional version with pork, liver and kikiam (quekiam) or pork rolls.

The kikiam used here is commercial kikiam which contains a lot of starch, as opposed to the better quality tawpe (bean curd skin) wrapped kikiam sold sliced in Chinese restaurants. Why not used the better kind? Because the meat will come loose during cooking.

Ingredients

  • 250 g. of pancit miki, boiled and rinsed (see instructions)
    300 g. of pork belly, boiled and cut into half-inch cubes
    100 g. of commercial kikiam, sliced
    50 to 75 g. of pork liver, sliced thinly
    4 cloves of garlic, minced
    1 onion, thinly sliced
    1 to 2 carrots, julienned
    12 Baguio beans, trimmed and sliced diagonally
    1/4 of a head of white cabbage, shredded
    2 tbsps. of cooking oil
    about 4 tbsps. of light soy sauce
    about 2 tbsps. of kalamansi juice (lemon or lime juice may be substituted)
    freshly ground black pepper
