  4. You can either remove or place the browned pork belly on one corner of the cooking pan, then use its fat to sauté onions and garlic. Add the sliced longaniza, next.
  5. Apply soy sauce, a pinch of salt if desired, then add ground black peppers to season. Stir to thoroughly combine ingredients.
  6. Add the vegetables, next, starting with carrots, cabbage, then chicharo(snow peas), stir to combine. Apply about 1/8 cup of water and let it simmer for 3-5 minutes until vegetables are slightly cooked(leaving them crunchy stores their nutritional value).

Note: Mark’s Pork Pansit Bato Guisado with Longaniza(Filipino sausage) is meant to be saucy, but you have an option to a lesser sauce, as desired. Filipino noodles or Pansit recipes are most often served with lumpia(eggrolls) as a combo meal.

If you prefer it as your snack, puto(steamed rice cake) or sinapot(maruya) on the side, and spicy vinegar and fish sauce will truly perk you appetite. Adding “Dinuguan” to Pansit Bato is also delicious!
