Ingredients: 3-4 servings

1 lb. pork belly cut in small cubes
1 pack egg noodles
1 cup chicharo (green peas)
1 cup sliced cabbage
1 cup string beans
2 stalks chopped spring onions(chives)
2 medium carrots, julienned
1/4 cup soy soy
2 cloves large garlic, minced
1 medium sliced onions
2 tbsp. cooking oil
salt and pepper to taste
2 sliced calamansi or lime
1 cup water

Cooking Procedure:

  1. Clean and cut pork belly in small cubes. Wash and clean all vegetables, slice cabbage in julienne slices. Do the same to carrots and string beans. Remove the fine strings around the snow peas(chicharo) then cut the chicharo in halves.
  2. Soak the canton noodles in warm water for 10 minutes if needed, strain the water, then set aside.
  3. Heat the oil on a deep pan, sauté onions, garlic, then add the pork belly. Add soy sauce and let it simmer for at least 10 minutes until pork is cooked.
  4. Add all vegetables starting with carrots, string beans, cabbage and chicaro. Combine and mix within 2 minute intervals. Sautee entire ingredients but make sure vegetables don’t overcook. Take them out of the pan and set aside.
  5. Boil water, add the softened noodles, apply a slight amount of cooking oil to prevent noodles from sticking together. Drop a teaspoon of soy sauce and let it simmer for 5 minutes until sauce is thick or almost gone.
  6. Combine all ingredients with the noodles, mix them thoroughly. Turn off the heat, transfer Pansit Lomi Guisado into a bowl. Add chives on top and sliced calamansi or lime on the side. Sprinkle a pinch of pepper if needed. Serve hot.

Tip: Overcooked vegetables will result to loss of essential nutrients. Likewise, overcooking noodles will spoil its texture and flavor.
