Pancit Palabok


Pancit Palabok

(Shorcut version)

Pancit palabok and pancit luglug are essentially the same dish, the difference being primarily in the noodles used in the recipe. Luglug uses a thicker noodle than the traditional bihon of a pancit palabok. Both pancit dishes use a round rice noodle (often specifically labeled for pancit luglug or palabok) smothered with a thick, golden shrimp sauce or other flavored sauce, and topped with:
  • Shrimp, (the size and shell-on or shell-off depending on preference)
  • Crushed or ground pork rind
  • Hard-boiled egg (sliced into disks or quartered lengthwise or chopped)
  • Tinapa (smoked fish) flakes
  • Freshly minced green onion
Pancit palabok/pancit luglog and pancit canton are communal comfort food, and can be found at nearly all Filipino potluck parties. They are best made and eaten in batches for they are easily consumed.

I love Pancit Bihon, Pancit Canton, and even this Pancit Palabok. I made this a couple days ago and it was delicious, I would say my next favorite pancit recipe next to pancit bihon. Exciting news!!! I found a way to make the shrimp sauce even faster and stress free. Last week, I noticed this packet sauce at Asian store and I was smiling...BOOM! I didn't know about this until last week, but I believe it was already out on the market long time ago..the good thing about this, there is directions on the back of the package that's very simple follow. So, next time when you go to the market, look for those shrimp packet sauce for pancit palabok and try it at home. You wouldn't believe how easy it is to make Pancit Palabok for whole family. In this recipe, I made my own twist by adding some ground pork and my favorite garnishes but you can totally rock this out by making your own twist. Lets have some Pancit this week! and I'm beyond excited to share this recipe with you guys! check out the recipe below and try it on your next potluck get together..wink:)

  9. Is it the same then as pancit malabon? Because I always refer to the one with the thicker noodles as pancit malabon hehehe...Pancit palabok with the thinner noodles has a more runny sauce, I think? I'm confused...bihon na lang nga hahaha!
